Cyclists

Bad manners and poor identification of black spots are contributing to crashes on the roads, according to Pat O'Connor, the Public Information Officer of the Coroner's Society of Ireland.

"Cars require an NCT test every four years and then they require it every two years and then, depending on the age, every year," he said.

"Why not have a system where the person who wants to renew their licence after a ten-year period must do a course, whether it's online or otherwise, and produce that certificate.

"The course itself would just remind people of the dangers of driving, but also the rules of the road and what should be observed."

100% agree.
We need an NCT for drivers.

Looks like it's the cyclists who are far more in need of additional testing, per today's Irish Times:

"Almost two-thirds (64 per cent) of hospitalised cyclists were injured in single-vehicle collisions, in this case meaning the bicycles themselves".

So much for all the cyclists being killed and injured by drivers....

No doubt Wank will not be able to comprehend that
 
Still a surprisingly large number of drivers on Irish roads who have never done, or failed, a driving test
🤔
Not surprising.
Back in the late 1970s there was a huge backlog of people waiting to take the test. Govt solution was anyone who'd had 2 consecutive provisional licences were given a full one on application. Crazy thing because some people had never actually driven a car previously but as they had the two provs, they automatically got the full licence.

Even scarier, those same people got the license to drive any vehicle type if they ticked all the boxes!

That population are now starting to come off the road. They'd now be in their mid 70s.
One of my uncles got one that way but stopped driving for health reasons last year. It'll be a while before they're gone but they're starting to go.
