Is it teething time for your little one?


We know applying makeup can take up a lot of time in the mornings, and many of us may take the easy way out by applying it in the car whilst we’re stuck in traffic. However, the Gardaí have warned women about applying makeup when driving as it is incredibly dangerous.


An Garda Síochána tweeted about the offence by sharing a rather witty Valentine’s Day poem.


They wrote, “Roses are red, violets are blue, €80 fine making its way to you.”



They confirmed that two drivers had broken the law this morning when they were caught applying makeup whilst driving.


“2 drivers left heartbroken after being fined this morning for applying makeup whilst driving. Early valentine's preparations perhaps?” they added.


They have asked the public to be more careful on our roads, "Please drive responsibly #ValentinesDay”



We know applying your makeup whilst travelling to work may be easier, but it is not safe. It prevents you from fully focusing on the road.


Leave the house that little bit earlier in the mornings and, and apply your makeup in the bathroom at work, rather than in your car in the middle of the road.


You’ll avoid a €80 fine and your eyeliner will be a hell of a lot more even.
