A Christmas sleigh perched on top of a car with a picture of Transport Minister Shane Ross printed on it has been spotted driving around the south side of Dublin.
The Road Safety Authority told the Irish Independent that the sleigh which also contains a Christmas tree is 'unsafe' and should be removed.
A message printed on the structure reads 'Happy Christmas Counsellor Kevin Daily, working with Shane Ross TD, Like Santa We Deliver'.
Speaking to the Indo, one motorist said: 'I made sure I was a good distance from it as it looked unstrady and it was during the heavy winds earlier this week. You just don't expect to see something like this car when you're driving along. It's a distraction and can make you nervous'.
Counsellor Daly insists the contraption is safe and has invited the RSA to inspect it.
