I pity the poor family of those two fellas who died in this tragedy. But what the hell was this car doing on the road. The NCT is a failure as the guards don't seem to enforce it. Why don't the guards in Ireland have a system like that in the UK where the police cars have cameras that can read the registration of cars and tell if the car is insured, taxed and NCT'ed.
I heard figures of 10% of cars on our roads are not insured, I don't know what the figure is for Tax and NCT. Also there is a huge number of cars driving around with one functioning headlight, just passed one earlier today bring the kids to school. This is an everyday occurance.
