Good he will bring in road charging and congestion charges making it more expensive for private motorists to drive .Hard to believe when a taxi driver suggested we should stand for election the Greens only had two councillors ?

ryan is dangerous. there's no doubt about it.
not as dangerous as a taxi driver within 50 feet of a microphone.
but still very dangerous.

COULD ACTUALLY BE GOOD FOR THE TAXI TRADE .

I would think if it lasts long enough this government Eamo will introduce Road Democracy .For to long M50 users using just one section between Palmerstown and Blanchardstown pay all the tolls while the rest of the 50 remains toll Free .This is wrong and unfair .I have seen the plans and all the gantries are in place if you look there is a Gantry to carry cameras before and after every on and off ramp all along the 50 so pay per mile will be introduced on the 50 ,then extended to every motorway and National rout in the Country .Congestion charges will also be introduced for Dublin,Cork ,Limerick and Galway .The Greens all being Middle Class dont be surprised to see the Household charge changed and levied on an energy efficiency rating rather than a property valuation .

More tax on work .It was a Green idea to use three different bins for rubbish you have to do the work of seperating the stuff into the different bins. At first you only paid for the Black bin the Brown and Green were free to take away now you pay to have them all lifted .This is an example of a hidden green tax .The same will happen with road tolling different rates will be charged on different roads to control the flow of traffic .Will we be exempt ?I wouldnt think so I would suggest working vehicles that operate in the City will pay an annual fee .Could work out Ok for taxi drivers if its going to cost 5 or 8 euro a day to drive your private car into town increased parking charges to 10 euro an hour will put off private motorists .For those of you who dont think on street parking will be a tenner an hour it was introduced at 5p an hour now its about 3 euro which is about 45 times more expensive allowing for currency conversion .Eamo and the Greens might just turn out to be our best Mates .

Forget all the other bollox these electric scooters give people a chance to get around separately without having to pedal and they're environmentally friendly.Freenow are pushing them and have been lobbying for the law to be changed.

These scooters have a range of about 18 miles and they only cost about €400 on the net.
Faster than cycling and they're so cheap to use they may take passengers off the buses too.Fold them up and walk into the office and recharge it for the way home.

In cities where private companies like Uber/freenow/lime provide them they put hundreds on the streets and charge a small membership fee.

So while we're all thinking about screens and masks and the taxi industry Freenow is making submissions to political parties to get folks on to their scooters.

Might get a scooter myself for going to the dole office..and the off licence.

Seriously? you think our passengers are going to start using rented scooters, These don't concern me at all (nor do rickshaws for that matter)
Getting kicked out of more bus lanes concerns me a little
Having to buy a poxy electric vehicle concerns me a lot
i'd be OK with a hybrid Camry it that suits their agenda, "shudda taken the plunge last time"

One think I could never understand about these new electric vehicles is,why would anyone buy one you have to plug in and charge,rather then the one that you DONT  have to plug in ?
