•Our private motoring business in the form of penalty points, which up to now has been between us and the gardai, is to be handed over to the insurance companies -- who may have found yet another way to hit the motorist.
Quite apart from a possible constitutional breach to the privacy of a citizen's right to have police dealings safeguarded from corporate interests; there can be absolutely no reason why insurance premiums should be hiked as a result.
Are we ever going to wake up in this sorry country and say a loud 'No' to something . . . anything?
