A MOTORIST is facing prosecution after gardai seized a trailer which was missing a wheel.
The detection was made in Adare earlier this week at a checkpoint which was manned by members of the divisional traffic corps.
A number of other vehicles were impounded on the same day under the provisions of the Road Traffic Act as they did not have motor tax or insurance.
