It’s full of drunken Irishmen.
I mean, Danny Healy-Rae had to be hammered when he put forth legislation that legalized drunk driving, right?
The Irish town of Kilgarvan passed a law this winter that allows members of its community to drink and drive.
Proposed by local pub owner and politician Danny Healy-Rae, the motion allows people who live in country areas to have a few beers before they drive home. Healy-Rae [said] he thinks the measure will help preserve pub culture, lower the risk of suicide and attack isolation in the small town.
Healy-Rae says the law isn’t supposed to apply to everyone.
“I am talking about mainly elderly people who live in very remote places who come to town to get a bit of shopping, enjoy a couple of pints and a chat with friends and then drive home at less than 30 miles an hour,” Healy-Rae [said].
Oh yeah, because the elderly are never involved in auto accidents. Why not liquor them up? /Headdesk
