    Descriptive info: Tags: left side.. Articles tagged with: left side.. 23.. September.. 2011.. Left hand side of the road.. Ever wondered why do we drive on the left hand side of the road?.. About 25% of the world's countries drive in the left hand side of the road, and the countries that do are mostly old British colonies.. In the past, almost everybody travelled by horse on the left side of the road as it made more sense to society at the time.. For example most people are right-handed, therefore swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent.. Also, a right-handed person finds it easier to mount a horse from the left side of the horse especially if carrying a sword.. It is also safer to mount and dismount at the inside of the road, rather than in the middle of traffic, so if one dismounts on the left, then the horse should be ridden on the left side of the road so as to not dismount in the middle of "traffic".. In the late 1700s, however, people in the United States began hauling farm products in big wagons pulled by several pairs of horses.. These wagons had no driver's seat; instead had the  ...   of the Bastille and the subsequent events, aristocrats preferred to keep a low profile and joined the peasants on the right.. Later, Napoleon's conquests spread the new rightism throughout Europe.. In the early years of English colonisation of North America, English driving customs were followed and the colonies drove on the left.. However, after gaining independence from England to break links with British rule they gradually changed to right-hand driving.. Only four European countries still drive on the left: the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta.. Now you know why you do your driving lessons on the left hand side of the road :)..

  • Title: Gardai Checks on Learner Drivers
    Descriptive info: Gardai Checks on Learner Drivers.. Nearly half of learner drivers breaking the law.. Irish Examiner.. - Monday, May 07, 2012 -.. By Seán McCárthaigh.. Almost half of all learner drivers in the country are breaking the law — by driving unaccompanied.. Data provided by Gardaí have revealed the extent to which inexperienced drivers are deliberately ignoring road traffic laws.. Two recent Garda operations which targeted learner drivers found 43% were failing to adhere to the conditions on which they were granted driving permits.. Out of 2,200 learner drivers stopped at checkpoints, 946 were unaccompanied by a full licence holder.. Three out of 10 also failed to display L-plates on their vehicle — another road traffic offence.. Gardaí confirmed court proceedings are being taken against 279 learner drivers, while a further 949 received an official caution.. Motorists convicted of a road traffic offence can face a fine of up to €1,000 for their first conviction.. Non-compliance with the accompanied driver rule ranged from 30% in the Garda northern region to 51% in Dublin.. The capital also had the worst level of learner drivers failing to display L-plates with 49% of learners in Dublin breaching the rule compared to just 18% in the south east region.. The issue of learner motorists driving without being accompanied by an experienced driver was a particular focus of Garda enforcement of road safety over the bank holiday weekend.. There are an estimated 235,984 learner drivers in the Republic, of which 114,632 are holding their first permit.. Road Safety Authority chief executive Noel Brett expressed disappointment at the high level of detections against learner permit holders by Gardaí.. However, he welcomed Garda enforcement of such vital road safety legislation.. "A learner permit allows an individual to learn to drive under certain conditions until they are ready to take a driving test.. "These include that they be accompanied by a driver who has held their full time licence for more than two years and that L-plates are displayed at all times to alert other drivers to the presence of a novice driver," said Mr Brett.. He said such laws were introduced to protect learner drivers who are considered vulnerable road users due to inexperience.. Since May 4 last year, all first-time learner permit holders must undertake 12 hours of compulsory driving lessons as part of major reform by the RSA of the driver training system.. Mr Brett said reductions in waiting times for the driving test to a national average of 10 weeks meant there were no longer excuses for those breaching the terms  ...   to work weekends, Saturday's and Sunday's and weekday evenings..
