    The Guards seem to be running their unofficial Most Scenic Traffic Stop competition again this year. With better weather, this morning's would be hard to beat.

    Full set here - no licence, tax, insurance or current test - now no car, either.

    Again, better weather would have helped.

    Can the police not be held to account for the weather?

    This is a MIT checkpoint yesterday evening.

    Mandatory Intoxicant Test, before you ask.

    No failures.

    Haven't actually stopped anybody here, but still a nice picture.

    Might have been better with a higher viewpoint, to avoid the wall obscuring the distance hillscape.

    Perhaps not exactly 'scenic', but interesting, nevertheless. There is a burning Transit hidden by the smoke and flames.

    Excellent improvisation to stop the 'river of fire' running down the street by the simple expedient of emptying a flowerpot in front of it as a dam.

    Must be some sort of pagan ritual, next Transit already lined up and the bunting is out.

    He should never have gone 88 in a 30.

    Very few 30 limits in the Republic - just a few along the quays in Dublin and the odd one elsewhere.

    50kph is the 'standard' urban speed limit now.

    Still mph limits on the railways, though..

    I did wonder about converting it into Euros for geographical empathy but it lost something in the translation. ;)

    A pleasant route for a car chase, having turned away 'at speed' from a check-point - and a nice walk home after the car is seized for no insurance, tax or test cert.

    A particularly fine grass verge.

    I think they may be selling ice cream out of the side door.

    Ducklings struggling with agitated water conditions and the steep sides of a Grand Canal lock.
