2 & 3/4 Penalty Points January 26, 2008

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

I have been down regulating for 5 days now and the metallic taste in my mouth is killing me! There are no other symptoms yet which, of course, is great.

If you hold a mobile phone while driving in Ireland (and you are caught holding it) you will get an automatic 2 penalty points & a €60 fine*. If you get 12 points you are officially disqualified from driving for 6 months (although in typical Oirish fashion this cannot be enforced).

Anyway I will get to my point now. It is illegal to hold a mobile phone but not to hold your toddlers hand, nor is it illegal to have a screaming toddler in the car. Today I drove for 30 minutes with D screaming in the back of the car. He didn’t let up. He just changed what he screamed about!
