Will this woman be allowed to drive the car now if she gets an adapted one from the state? At the very least she should have a driving ban and have to resit her exam again.

I agree with the driving ban, anyone driving without insurance should get one and they generally do. Don't see the need for a resit of a driving test tbh.

I don't get this, from RTE "Ms Kennedy was uninsured at the time. The system used in court saw the case taken by the child's grandfather - against Ms Kennedy."

hear, hear

Do you think she should be brought in front of a court over the fact she was driving illegally?


Also, people seem to think that driving insured and uninsured are exactly the same.
They're not.
If I don't have insurance on my car or if I couldn't afford it, I wouldn't drive it - end of.
I wouldn't dream of taking it out uninsured.
If this mother used that kind of common sense, her son would be unaffected.
I'm not stating any opinion on what I think should happen or if she was right or wrong to be uninsured. I'm pointing out what we know as fact and how it affects other drivers.

Probably should have put my post in the more serious of the 2 threads :-)

I see her friends are like minded anyway

Sure lets all have a laugh and joke about it.
The childs welfare is clearly at the front of all their minds

I think that post on Facebook gives a bit of an insight in to the mind of the woman that caused the child all the hurt but doesnt accept any of the blame.
