What County Is About to Make Drunk Driving Legal?


I don’t really get why this is even considered being approved. Also, I don’t get their reasoning for trying to make this legal either – just doesn’t make sense. Lawmakers have agreed to pass a proposal which could essentially allow people to drive above the legal limit.

Kerry County in Ireland has passed the measure that would lend a ‘get out of jail free’ basically. Danny Healy-Rae is the councilman who originally came up with the idea because he was worried about elderly people in rural areas who are being ‘isolated now at home and a lot of them falling into depression”. (So, what’s the problem with having one beer vs. 10 beers?) Here’s what he also had to say to elaborate on this:

I see the merit in having a stricter rule of law for when there’s a massive volume of traffic and where there’s busy roads with massive speed. But on the roads I’m talking about, you couldn’t do any more than 20 or 30 miles per hour [30-50kph] and it’s not a big deal. I don’t see any big issue with it.”

It isn’t 100% passed yet the Department of Justice still has to take it up. What do you think?
