Which is why I have such a problem with people calling for the Gardai to "use common sense" whenever certain subjects come up. From relatively minor things like illegal numberplates to things like driving along on a learners permit, the Gardai sending people off and telling them to sort it just makes the stuation worse. There should at least be a culture of the Gardai logging every stop and the reason on to pulse then after5 3 stops for the same thing a fine and points should be sent out automatically by the system.
Living in Dublin, I can be fairly confident that I could be pulled 10 times by different Gardai for the same offence. If every one of them sends me on my way with a ticking off, how is that effective policing?
