This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Driving in Ireland
is terrifying - it's like Mario Kart, with slightly more serious consequences. I've driven in Africa, the former USSR and what used to be Yugoslavia - none of them can hold a candle to the sheer fucking lunacy I witnessed daily while navigating Dublin and the surrounding areas. A van won't save you or elevate you either - I've had all sorts trying to run me off the road or shorten my stay.

Is there any truth in the story that the Dal just started handing out licenses like sweets for people who'd only previously held a provisional license?

Back in the early eighties there was a huge backlog of people waiting for tests.
And there was an election coming up, so Fianna Fáil decided to give licenses away.

Ah, Ireland
The only country I've visited where you can be overtaken whilst overtaking.

You've never been to Sri Lanka then.
In one incident I recall, we were in an 8-seater minibus, overtaking a lorry, which was overtaking a pushbike with 4 people on it, going uphill round a blind left-hand bend (they drive on the left).
My arsehole was like a rabbit's nose.
