Speed Camera Roll Out? Yeah Yeah Yeah!

Unfortunately for the population of this country who rely on Driving Legislation and Laws, or rather the lack of them, to guide them in their Driving Habits, one constant feature that continues to surprise me is that every time some new initiative is announced, it is years before it is implemented!

An article in the Limerick Leader a couple of weeks ago looked at the proposed introduction of national Speed Cameras and gave many comments from the local populace. One would be forgiven for thinking that this new development would be in force in a matter of weeks. Not So. They have been talking about this for years and successive Ministers have just not grasped the nettle. I guess there aren’t too many votes in accident statistics. We have amongst the worst set of accident statistics in Europe, per capita but speed cameras are not going to solve this issue.

What is the answer?

(1)A Standard of Driving that is led by Professional Instruction monitored and regulated by Law would be a start.

(2)The end to the farcical situation of Learner Drivers continuing to drive after failing Driving Tests without a structured and enforced plan for achieving full license status.

(3)A Minimum number of Driving Lessons certified by a Registered Driving School before being allowed to sit the Driving Test.

(4)Mandatory Tuition following the failing of a Driving Test and before the next attempt.

(5) Proper regulation and monitoring of out of State Drivers with Non Irish Registrations.

(6) Mandatory Tuition for New Drivers picking up Penalty Points in their first year following the Driving Test.

Draconian? Measures you might say, but we should learn from the experiences of other Countries and at least show some ability to improve the deteriorating situation on our Irish roads. Bolting the stable door after the horse has cantered over the horizon when we have so much financial resource available now, is a poor reflection of our system.

Drive Safely

Astral Driving School is committed to helping Learner Drivers achive a standard that will keep them safe and accident free.
