The Carlow Roads Policing Unit stopped a vehicle on Kilree Street, Bagnelstown recently with a dangerously defective tyre.
The vehicle was seized and Gardaí have issued a stern warning.
In a post on Facebook, they said: "And how about these for tyres? Statistics show that on average 14 fatal collisions each year are attributed to defective/bald tyres. Please check your tyres and tyre pressure before commencing your journey."
