A shocking image is doing the rounds on social media this morning…
The image, which shows a syringe needle shoved into a pay parking machine, is being shared widely across social media this morning (Friday).
The image was shared by local Sinn Féin councillor, Tom Forde, who noted that anyone who would do this would be considered the “lowest of the low” in society.
“The lowest of the low, stuffing these into pay parking machines. When I was a child I would always run along and check for change. It’s used and jammed. Covered for now and will be removed,” Forde stated.
The machine is located near the Wexford CBS school in Wexford town.
As Councillor Forde pointed out, children often stick their hands into pay parking machines to check to see if there is any change left over.
Likewise, people who just want to pay for their parking ticket could be given a very unwelcome surprise if their hand touched the used needle.
It’s sickening to think that this happened in the Wexford community and that someone out there decided that this was the best place to put the dirty syringe.
