New provisional licence rules pushed out till 30th June 2008. That's a bit crappy, it was suppose to come into effect tomorrow midnight. My hubby was counting the amount of people with L-plates driving by themselves today, whilst I was driving around Limerick. I remember the biggest gasp of awe, shock and horror was from my Singaporean friend, who heard a HK friend of mine failed her driving test and drove back home by herself! He cannot fathom the idea at all. My hubby also said Jeremy Clarkeson could not believe the way our provisional licences worked when he was on RTE recently on some show (not sure which one, I don't watch Irish tv shows that much). What about all those L-plate drivers driving on the motorway? Never mind the usual drivers (full/provisional) who talk on their mobiles, do make-up etc., and not a Garda in sight. *breathes and tries to calm down.
