A DRIVER is being brought to court after being caught by gardaí driving a car with a steel pipe instead of an exhaust.
The driver will be summonsed after being detected in the Fermoy area by the local garda roads policing unit for excessive noise from the car.
The steel pipe was held in place under the car with a clothes hanger and a length of chain.
Sharing an image on the Garda Siochana Southern Region's Facebook page, gardaí said: "Fermoy RPU heard this car before they saw it. On closer inspection they saw this DIY exhaust that Mac Gyver would’ve been proud of. A steel pipe, coathanger and a bit of chain but no muffler. "
The driver will also be summonsed for driving without displaying N plates.
