Incredibly, it has been revealed that two L-plate drivers were jailed this year for driving on their own with no full licence holder with them.
In 2013, no one was imprisoned for the same offence, while in 2012, one person was jailed for it.
Surely this is a massive waste of gardai time, but more importantly, a huge waste of tax payers money.
There are new stricter regulations this year which mean you can no longer drive alone. The overlooked law is now supposedly going to be heavily implemented.
