That last guy in the van sums up the daily experience. I've been driving in the city very early in the morning a lot recently and the red light situation needs critical attention now. Multiples of cars breaking literally every last one of the red lights I come to even before rush hour.
I was driving through roadworks on the N2 in Monaghan a few weeks back, and approaching the road workers' traffic lights you crest a small hill and they come into view about 7 or 8 cars in front when in traffic. When I crested the hill the light was fully red but every single car in front of me broke it, AND the guy behind me screeched around me to break it too when I had the gall to stop. When I got the green a minute later I had to wait fully fifteen seconds to allow all the gob****es who broke it coming the other way to clear the road, so the cycle continued. The "I'm alright, Jack" attitude is absolutely ingrained in drivers these days.
Painting yellow boxes, stop lines and ASLs must almost be a satirical joke by the council at this point. It's not even enough to park in cycle lanes now either, the amount of completely blocked footpaths I see all over the place is at epidemic levels.
Large scale garda intervention is essential at this point to curb driver behaviour.
I also nearly got into an argument with a Garda, fed up with a load of cars in the bus lane, there was one ahead of me that was inching into driving lane having driven 300m in the bus lane with a garda car behind, she mouthed "not my problem" to me when I pointed it out to her, if my wife hadn't been in the car with me i'd have gotten out and asked her to do her job.
