The under-resourcing of Garda vehicles for the Tipperary Division is reaching a critical and dangerous impasse.
That is according to Independent TD Mattie McGrath.
The Tipperary Garda Division was allocated 8 new vehicles in 2018.
However 4 Garda vehicles were removed from service last year with a further 2 already taken out of service so far in 2019.
Gardai across Tipperary are stretched beyond capacity in terms of delivering effective vehicle response levels according to Deputy McGrath.
