Driver fined for having camera on a stick out the window

A man was fined for using a camera on a selfie stick out of the car window while driving in Salthill.

Garda Michael F Murphy said that on May 26 of last year he was on patrol when he saw a car driving towards the Prom with what appeared to be a camera on a stick out the window.

As the driver of the car was pulling the camera back inside he nearly crashed into a parked car Garda Murphy said.

Darius Ivan, with an address at Slí Gheal on the Ballymoneen road, was charged with driving without reasonable consideration for others.

A fixed charge penalty notice was issued by gardaí which went unpaid, leading to a court summons being issued.

Ivan, who did not appear at the hearing in Galway District Court, was fined €250 with three months to pay.
