If that was the case then anyone could invent any old shite up about anyone.
You don't have to prove you weren't doing something. They have to prove you were.

Nope.
People make up shite all the time about others, fact of life. But, if it gets to the courts, that means the Garda has done their job and verified the facts, believe the complaintant and and happy to proceed with a procecution case. If Garda not happy with the accusation, complaintant or the case in general, they bounce it.
Been there, know how it works.
If you've been accused of something, you either accept it or defend it. Eye witness accounts do count for something.....

Yeah, I can see the DPP providing a book of evidence to the courts, and all that's in it is 'someone said he did it'

Bad enough with the phone to the ear but when I am out cycling its amazing the number of people looking at a mobile phones on their lap or being held under the steering wheel. I used to come down hard on it when I was a garda - at least when I was able to free myself from under the mountain of paperwork on my desk.

They're scary on the roads, you'd think they let you pass but when they realise they've deviated a little bit they move straight back into the middle of the road and they've never seen you at all. I nearly got knocked off by one of them yesterday. Bloody dangerous.

And therein lies the problem.

The end result of someone using a mobile phone while driving, is the same as someone in a Honda Civic pulling handbrake turns in a residential area, yet we only seem bothered about reporting one offence?

It's beyond me...

I'll explain it to you again... it's simply because without proof, it's your word against theirs and there's nothing the garda can do about it.

Thus, it's a waste of time and most will not even bother.


Unless you can prove it with video, photos, a witness or a garda watching it as it happens, it wont do anything other than "moral relief" ?


Fucking sucks, I agree, but it's the way it is.

Yesterday on my way back home on a heavily packed N40, had a garda cage behind me as I was on the left lane to get down on the next exit... as this lane is exit only it was a bit faster that the rest of the traffic...

As we were passing cages moving slowly on the right, I saw 4 idiots texting and I pointed them all out to the garda.

Fucks given = 0


I mean, cop was right there, fuckers were texting away right in front of his face. I guess copper had places to go...

I rest my case.
