Tough economic times – “The driver hadn’t a baldy”

Police officers got a surprise on Saturday night when they witnessed a driver one tyre short of a set, travelling in his BMW in Belfast.

A spokesperson for the Police Service of Northern Ireland commented:

“Officers from Lisburn Road Local Policing team stopped this vehicle in the city centre last night.

“The driver hadn’t a baldly it was so bad (he was totally sober and coherent to make it even more unbelievable).

“We couldn’t even issue a ticket for a defective tyre as there wasn’t one! The driver has been reported to the Public Prosecution service for dangerous driving due to the state of the vehicle.

“Remember it is up to you to keep your vehicle in a roadworthy condition, especially if you are waiting on an MOT test.”
