Gardaí wish a Happy Valentine's to two motorists applying makeup while driving

AN GARDA SÍOCHÁNA have reiterated the importance of safe driving during the love-filled holiday. 

While many of us are primping and preening ourselves for our other halves, or even brushing up in the hopes of finding the one before this year's Valentine's, doing it behind the wheel of a moving vehicle remains inexcusable.

Two drivers were found to be doing just that this morning, and caught by the Gardaí.

One person was curling their eyelashes behind the wheel and it is not known what the other driver was doing with regards to cosmetics.

The official An Garda Síochána Twitter account shared an apt poem to describe the morning's events:

"Roses are red violets are blue, €80 fine making its way to you. 2 drivers left heartbroken after being fined this morning for applying makeup whilst driving."

In their bids to improve their appearances, they didn't improve their purses for Valentine's celebrations.
