Not putting a tooth in it – Shane Ross demands no one can have even one drink and drive

The Minister for Transport Shane Ross has demanded that a full stop to driving after having even one drink be imposed.

However he has given no evidence for his claims that people are impaired even after having half a pint and driving.

The TD said he thinks 3 points is too lenient and wants people to be banned from driving if they even had half a pint.

Rural TDs have given Ross more than he can handle by demanding evidence that people are impaired after one drink.

They also said many people who get a taxi home and drive to work the next day will be banned from driving as alcohol will still be in their system.

Ross is said to┬ánot even be interested in hearing about rural people’s┬ástories about being stranded in remote areas after having half a pint.

 

What do you think of the proposal by Ross?
