Thread: Its the Law , and it isn't properly enforced ?

  1. #1

    Default Its the Law , and it isn't properly enforced ?

    Lets name and shame all the failings of enforcement. Laws that exist in name only.
    For openers :
    - Anti-begging legislation is openly flouted at a parking coin machine near you ( or even near your Garda Station )
    - Jaywalking legislation
    - Fireworks
    - Downloading of Audio/Video, filesharing
    so,
    any more laws which are openly ignored ?

    How about gender-balance in immigration into ireland ? Is it currently 40 blokes arriving for every 1 woman arriving on these shores ?

    parking in the country - "feck it I'll throw the car up here and run in for 2 mins"

    I would love to be in charge of parking in Ireland - People with disabled badges should be monitored better - In the north if you even heard a bomb go off - you could have got a blue badge. Outside my work continually I see young people pull up on double yellow, go in shopping and throw the disabled badge up.

    In my home home of Kinnegad there is a supervalue - with about 100 car parking spaces - But instead of using them they all decide to just pull up at front door, double and sometimes treble park - feck could they be bothered parking in the allocated parking slot and walking the 30secs into the entrance

    Corruption laws, Fraud laws, Standards in Office laws, Perjury laws.

    But then they're not as bad, because the people who do them work in big offices.....

    Now those are the laws I'd like to see properly enforced. Who cares about jaywalking? Well, ok people should take care on the roads but common sense should be sufficient to stop people walking out in from of vehicles, shouldn't it?

    Adherence to the law is a two way street. Some cultures don't do adherence to regulation.

    ireland is a societyb which has very little sense of civic responsibility, breaking the law is part of our culture. Sad but true.

    Of course, you couldn't be bothering decent, respectable people.
