We live in hard times.
Cash is sparse and many are struggling.
To make an extra few bob, some will try to get an extra job, or maybe give up a few non-essentials. Some will bring out the collection tins. Some may even resort to knocking over a bank or two.
Some will resort to highway robbery.
They need the cash so they are going to head out in force to rip off the poor old motorist.
It is a virtual certainty that they can mug any car they wish, as the list of rules and regulations is long and complex and you can be virtually guaranteed that any motorist will be breaking at least one rule at any given time.
There is an interesting quote from the Garda Commissioner.
“The objective is to remind people that it doesn’t pay to take chances on our roads.”
This was in fact a misquote.
What he really said was
“The objective is to remind people that they do pay to take chances on our roads.”
