Very rarely 90.....even during Lockdown II with the roadblocks they waved me through,although ye cop on very quickly that if you're in the fast lane there's not much they can do.

I wonder why they don't. its not as if taxi drivers havent been caught without a licence  or for drink driving or transporting drugs numerous times in the past.

Used to be an unwritten rule that we would be waved through checkpoints. It changed a bit after entry liberalisation back in 2000. For a while you were more likely to be stopped than not but it seems to have swung back the other way now, particularly if you have no passengers and your roof light is illuminated. Not sure why you'd want to be stopped, T1990. Checkpoints up above in Dublin aren't manned by local friendly community minded Gardai who'll turn a blind eye to most everything these day, more often than not there's balaclava clad thugs pointing powerful firearms at you... it's like West Belfast in the 70s/80s.

I don't want to be stopped, but would have no problem with it. we once had a cheeky prick from northern Ireland driving around in his northern Ireland taxi picking people up or taxis from other counties working in a county they arent supposed to be working in.

If you work for Free Now you can work in any county. Loads of their men head up to Dublin when there's fuckall happening down the bog.

I assume you're white and Irish by accident of birth if you have no problem stopping for trigger happy Gardai. It's all great fun 'till black lives are lost.

@ 1990 .I was driving down Cork Street in Dublin approaching a Checkpoint with Fredrick,Liam and Garreth in the car I promise you getting stopped at that checkpoint was going to be the most frightening day of my life just in case one of the trigger happy lads like the one who shot the Lad in Blanchardstown was on duty .Fortunatly the Gards knew me and my Garda escort were on the way and waved us through .

How do you know they have no licence to work your county .The Law as in LAW states that the primary qualification is the LICENCES held by the driver not the sticker on the roof sign .It dosent even say the Licences displayed by the driver just held .So If I have a Dublin and Kildare licence and Display my Dublin Licence Im hardly going to change over to my Kildare licence on the Nass Road and if I did would I need to pull over ?

One inocent man is one inocent man too many .The Abbylara Killing lead to a referendum .You cant just shoot somebody because you wear a Blue Shirt ?Be carefull what you wish for .As hemmingway  says that because we are all part of mankind, any person's death is a loss to all of us: “Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” The line also suggests that we all will die: the bell will toll for each one of ...

Racist or not, Blacks lives matter... although you wouldn't think so given the lack of repercussion, to date.

taxi app driver check. some drivers might get a trip 40 minutes away to a county town they have no licence for and work away. I wouldnt do it but some cheeky drivers might and do chance it the odd time.

They didn't just shoot him, they tried every avenue they could before they had to fire at him.
