I'm sick (though this thread not really making that claim) of hearing about Ireland being a back door into the UK.
The UK is very much a back door into Ireland for sham marriages.

And of course to restore your licence you will need to get an ID card, as you do for a passport. Funny how they should target peoples ability to travel freely without entering themselves upon a vast government database of the sort that is outlawed in their wonderful Germany.

Yeah but the pool of UK licenses is bigger than the pool of Eastern Europe licenses no?
Foreign drivers are being allocated Irish licences whether they want them or not.

The story goes that the Polish army used to give its 'recruits' an HGV as a leaving present without actually training them to drive anything bigger than a sweet trolly.

in order to get banned from driving in Ireland, you would need to operate one of these noisy things in close vicinity to the offices of a software giant . Any other behaviour on the roads will be get you the maximum punishment of a dirty look from a cow in a field.

Driving bans now recognised on both sides of the border - Independent.ie
So a driving ban in the UK now applies in RoI and vice versa.
Are UK banned drivers a menace here? I would have thought the Eastern Europeans were more problematic.
But a reciprocal agreement with them wouldn't bring us that little bit closer to the Mother Country.
The entire penalty points - driving ban system will come crashing down when eventually challenged.
As we learned in the SC last week, the state cannot assume a function of the courts.

The new 'drug' driving laws in their present form can be very detrimental to peoples lives. I know many people on long term medication such as anti-depressants and pain killers who actually drive for a living. They're all responsible people (don't drink alcohol) who wouldn't dare drive if they felt drowsy from the meds. Not only is their livelihood now in jeopardy, they'll also be prevented from driving for social, domestic and pleasure purposes. Meanwhile the scumbags will continue to drive around full of crack cocaine and buckfast until caught, if ever. Knee-jerk legislation, using a kango to crack an egg.
