Lets say we all go electric where does the power to run them come from .Its a Fact check it out Ireland experiences at least twenty power failures in different regions immediately after the All Ireland finals as to many people put on the Electric kettle to make tea .There will be absolutely no plan to reduce the amount of cars on the Road as Motoring yields huge returns for the exchequer Between Vat,VRT ,Fuel Duty .A car generates about 60K over its lifetime for the Exchequer .We banned smoking in Pubs but didnt ban smoking .The plan will be to increase the tax take from cars by introducing congestion charges .Increased Parking Fees .Road tolling .If they are not going to get fuel duty from Cars they will get that revenue  from different types of tax on motoring .Look out your front window on this Summers day how many people will be cycling today or scooting their scooter .We live an a rain soaked windy island .

They can't force drivers to change diesel vehicles if they've already been plated up.
Decent electric cars are still too pricey for most.At the moment there is no viable electric vans or wheelchair accessible vans.The worst they could do is put 50cent on a liter of fuel.That might cost a few hundred extra  a year.Maybe remove the diesel cheaper than petrol thing at the pumps.

It won't be the green party but the coronavirus that will force the public into changing their transport choices.

The Green party press conference on Transport (Pre last election)
They do mention that there is no plan to have congestion charges
they talk about walking , cycling. more about walking, cycling. walking walking and walking ,,,, and Metro north and walking
They're very big into walking

Pre Election Roy reality is we need to get more tax to pay our debts .Do you think the Greens will reduce tax or Vat on Sandals to increase walking .If ever we are going to get a Congestion charge or Road pricing its Now .Leo wouldnt do it as he had a City constituency .Ross wouldnt do it for the same reason .Ryan has a Cycling wealthy constituency who have bikes and dont want to bring up their kids in a bubble of exhaust fumes .Wait and see the traffic congestion when the College Green is blocked off and the Parliament Street Passover is reduced to a bus corrodor  .,and Temple Bar becomes a Gas Chamber surrounded by vehicles spewing poison out of their emissions as they go nowhere .Ask one of the Greens for the figure for toxins emitted per vehicle per kilometer traveled in the City center Now. Then look at that figure after they introduce traffic calming measures and restrictions .I would suggest it will be much higher but that wont matter its the optics of saying we are reducing the traffic not the reality of increasing emissions .

Ah Coola ask yourself why the Confrence Center ?Did you know that the Government agreed to guarantee the yearly earnings of the Confrence Center when it was bought out of NAMA .The RDS ,Croker .plenty of other venues could of been used .

Supposing you had the money to buy one of these new cars,why would you buy one you have to plug in and charge,as opposed to a hybrid that you DONT have to plug in and charge ?

Dalymount seriously your age and your health .Why would you even consider putting yourself under pressure to earn the cost of a new car .This is a perilous industry until we learn what the plan is .

Shoe in for Climate  Action but They really wanted Transport:

Throughout the talks it is understood there were calls from his party (the greens)  for the transport brief to be rolled together with Climate Action
