Upset by drivers using cell phones

There seems to have been a large increase in the number of drivers on mobile phones in recent months (even more than usual). I rarely undertake a journey without seeing at least one driver holding their phone out in front of them whilst driving. Other jurisdictions such as the UK are clamping down h [...]

1.

Can you help settle an intra-spousal argument? What’s the legal position on cyclists who ride their bikes into oncoming traffic? I get the logic that they can see cars coming better, but shouldn’t they be required to follow the rules of the road like everyone else? Auntie’s answer: I a [...]

There is a small, vacant piece of land behind the church on the corner of Shamrock and Selkirk that many Selkirk residents use to drive over to Hurley’s.  It isn’t an official road and is currently only usable for robust vehicles, and I was wondering if the Government has ever looked in [...]
