RTÉ News: Ahern denies points system disarray

Of course there’s no problem! I did a lot of driving at the weekend, up to Dungarvan, to Clonmel and then back to Cork. I was passed several times by cars doing 70-80mph. Twice those cars were BMWs, the other time it was something similar to a Punto, driven by a boy racer who passed me just after I overtook another car, on a narrow road outside Cahir!
It is true that 50 people are alive today who would be dead if the Penalty Points weren’t introduced, but the Gardai need something better than “Pulse” to deal with the paperwork. Otherwise they’ll be ignored.
