Immigrant Song…. A look at Led Zeppelin?

This is not a music review although it’s timely to reflect on the 25th Anniversary of the Death of Led Zeppelin’s Drummer…John Bonham. This was undoubtedly the Best Rock Band in History (with apologies to Master Jagger and Co).
Back to the business of just what we are coming to with the vast volume of immigrants settling and making new lives in Ireland. I am of course only referring to The Irish Driving Scene and how the lack of enforced Driving Legislation will continue to affect us all; Learners, Tourists and the Mature Driving Population.

The following post was made earlier today on IndyMedia:-

“Thought I would post my opinions in response to the article on Driving Offenses by an immigrant. Of course we have quite enough homegrown uninsured Drivers without importing more problems from around the World.
If immigrants are going to come and settle in Ireland then they should be required to learn, absorb and obey all the Laws. Ignorance of the Law is not an excuse and shouldn’t be tolerated under any circumstances.
I was approached in a busy hotel car park last week by an Asian Man who was teaching his four year old the complexities of navigating a busy car park on a tricycle. It’s a miracle the child is still alive! His English was so bad as to be comical as he attempted to ask the price of Driving Lessons, which he then queried argumentatively.
There is absolutely no justification for allowing such persons on the road in charge of a lethal weapon. Mandatory standard of English should be required to begin with and of course there is no hope whatsoever of this person passing a Driving Test. He just wouldn't understand the Examiners instructions.
I think it's a good thing that we invite other Nationalities to participate in our new-found prosperity but as for driving that's another day's work. We are endeavoring to help all learner drivers with articles published on the web and with two blogs, currently Arrive Alive... and MotorVating

We have a large amount of Legislation backed up, covering all things Automotive and unless at least some of this gets to be implemented soon we will start the downhill slide to more Motoring Mayhem and the type of situation that pertained before Penalty Points.
At the rate we are going( or not if you get my drift) most of us will be 120 years old before the full Penalty Points system is in full swing. Four offences implemented in three years are not going to improve our accident statistics. There are two Computers costing €13 million sitting out there somewhere waiting to be switched on as I understand it.

Just in case anyone out there doubts the problems we are facing with our cousins from overseas here is a little snippet from a month ago relating to a friend of mine who I have been trying to coach towards Driving Test Standard.(unsuccessfully I might add)
Phone rings…agitated voice says” my sister has received her Test Appointment but I have not and we sent off a year ago together” The Girl had moved twice recently and we had to contact Ballina by e-mail to give current address. Incidentally don’t ever expect a reply to emails from the Driving Test Dept. I am still waiting. This girl had had three hours of coaching a year ago on just the Technical Checks and Test Protocols. Here we are now one month from the Test and the Bonnet of her car has never been opened by her. She has had the car a year now. Bonnet release mechanism was not functioning and came off in my hand, driver’s window (electric) not functioning, brake light missing and rear indicator not flashing amber. This was not an old car but would not have been accepted by an Examiner for a Driving Test on any of the above faults. The driving skills or rather the lack of them in this case I am sure are echoed around the country with many immigrants. So whatever Legislation is eventually brought in, this is not going to reduce the waiting times for a Driving Test when such standards as I have just described are commonplace.
