      It’s not a BMW, which as we all know is the preferred vehicle for the knobs who work in the IFSC.

      As an aside, I have an ex who works in there. Make what you will of that.

    That junction at the IFSC and Amiens street was a constant source of delay. Ban cars from the city centre.

    I reckon they should attach modified snow ploughs to the front of the trams and gently shove the offending vehicles aside.

        Less damage to the tram, and the hipsters won’t spill their double crema cafe lattes

    I’d take the driver reg, use the Luas to nudge the car out of my way and then claim the Luas repairs on the car’s insurance.

      1. Cian

        true. in that case the laws should be amended to allow the Luas to do this, and full costs will be taken from the offending car owners.

            Be more careful parking then, Boj. If a moron blocks public transport that can’t go around it, it’s their own stupid fault if their car gets damaged.

    Awww why didn’t you wait and take picture of the gomer coming back to the car looking all surprised that the Luas didn’t just go around.

    Things like this is why socialism never works: it would be a good system if there were zero willy-woos in the world, but there are just enough willy-woos in the world, albeit a small number, to render the system completely unworkable.

      And this system works?
      I’m hardly a tankie but I fail to see the merit in your argument.

      1. Rob_G

        It works better (IMO) partially due to the fact that it acknowledges that, while human beings are more-or-less nice, when it comes down to it, everyone is looking out for #1, first and foremost.

        Any ideology that is reliant on everyone being as high-minded and virtuous as the people who formulated that ideology is doomed to fail.

          Nah, only some people are like that (“everyone is looking out for #1, first and foremost”) and you can usually gain a good insight into who is like that by the way they vote.

          You’re a FG man, if I’m not mistaken?

    2. BobbyJ

      Car driver abandons private vehicle in the way of public transport and Rob_G uses this to have a pop at socialism.

      You ok, hun?

      1. Rob_G

        Not really having a pop at socialism, Bobby – more having a pop at human nature. Socialism is a great idea; the problem is that is needs to be implemented by humans, who are subject to each and every human weakness.

    At 6pm the luas was still not passing by that area. Walked all the way home when I was already about to drop off. Bah
