Update: Labour Spokesperson for Transport, Kevin Humphreys, has criticised the Minister for Transport Shane Ross over a "dangerously placed" sleigh, branded with his name and face, seen on top of a car in Dublin last night.
Senator Humphreys has described it as "a clear road hazard".
The RSA has called for the Minister to remove it and Senator Humphreys said: "It seems to be a case of 'do as I say, not as I do' when it comes to the Minister for Transport's road safety drive.
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 Stepaside in Dublin.
The Road Safety Authority said that the sleigh, which also contains a Christmas tree, is "unsafe" and should be removed.
People say @Shane_RossTD isn't on top of his brief. What more do you want form a transport minister than a lit up Christmas tree in a lit up sleigh, with him wearing a Santa hat, on top of a jeep parked in Stepaside? Merry Christmas Minister!! pic.twitter.com/nQDShw3XCS— Cllr Peter O'Brien (@CllrOBrien) December 19, 2018
A message printed on the structure reads "Happy Christmas - Counsellor Kevin Daily, working with Shane Ross TD, Like Santa We Deliver".
Counsellor Daly insists the contraption is safe and has invited the RSA to inspect it.
