Arrive Alive (the Astral Driving School Blog ©June 2005)

Arrive Alive (the Astral Driving School Blog ©June 2005)
(or if you prefer the R.S.A. Summer Campaign)

Good news today with the announcement of tough new Legislation that for
once will be put into force before the Dail Brakes for its Summer recess!( we need to be pleading with the road Safety Oracle(no not Gay Byrne!) that this time the trumpet fanfares are justified!).

Worth pointing out that it is now 4 years +4 months and 31 days since the Regulation, Examination and Monitoring of Driving Instructors was due to be implemented! So keep your plaudits under the bonnet (hood for Transatlantic visitors) for another week or so and lets see what happens (or doesn’t as the case may be!)

The Brakes have been on for far too long with a pile of legislation that has been gathering dust since most cars had only three gears and a strange wobbly lever thingy jutting out from the Steering column. Weren’t those days wonderful with little yellow plastic things which pretended to be indicators and at least ten cars on the side of the road with steam billowing out from under the bonnet (?) during any ten mile journey in the Summer! Summers were Summers back then and driving with Kids in the back was something you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy…I should know I was one of them!

Random Breath Testing will come into effect and along with this will be an immediate and on the spot confiscation of the Driving License if the legal limit of 80mg is exceeded. The Ban will last for 6 months which should give most individuals plenty of time to reflect on their plight and also to hire a chauffeur or indeed look for another job! Any Driver whose prime activity is piloting a Company Van, Truck or Car and who also is in the habit of taking a drink should brush up his (or her?) C.V it may be needed sooner than you think.

Mobile phone (cell) use while Driving will also be outlawed and many little Black flight recorders will be hidden in the hedgerows. Not sure whether they will be black or not though; perhaps green to blend in with the scenery? To the cognoscenti these will not be monitoring low flying Aircraft but low Flying cars trying to emulate the former .i.e. Shpeed Camera Yokes!
Perhaps the roads will be much less crowded in double quick time if these measures are well enforced and The Minister for Justice has to cut short his own Summer Recess and put out an emergency Call for 3000 new Gardai to keep up with the demands .

All of the proposed measures are long overdue as most right thinking citizens will agree, even those who are not Drivers. Pedestrians are a most overlooked category of road user and also fall foul of treacherous Driving. They do however; have their own catalogue of misdemeanours which can make a driver’s hair curl and cause difficulties to Learner Drivers on their Driving Tests more than just occasionally.

Very gratifying to note that the Summer Campaign by the newly inaugurated Road Safety Authority against drink driving has been named “Arrive Alive” which is by complete coincidence the name of the first Astral Driving School Blog set up just a year ago. Looking forward to oodles of more traffic as a result of this endorsement. Actually there is a South African Driving Web Site with the same name…isn’t it great that there is no copyright on everyday words?

While we are on (so to speak) our blogging levels have been almost zero for the last couple of months as we attended Seminars and Workshops and the rebuilding of the Astral Driving School Web Site which goes live in a few more days. So apologies to any of our earlier visitors who thought we had emigrated or passed out (!)

Just launched ...the Astral Driving School forum...so go take a look …it’s still in its infancy but make a post or a comment as long as it’s printable and as long as you do a spell check.! How I hate Forum posts and Blog entries that look like a Text message with gastric attachments!
