Movin’ to Ireland

Craig points to this judgment from an Irish judge saying that you should assume slow drivers who hold up traffic are idiots. The article concludes, “Judge Harnett said that either slow drivers enjoyed holding up other people or else they were incompetent or their cars were in poor condition.”

Having driven on Irish roads myself, I would include another alternative: the driver was afraid that at any minute an enormous cow would pop out of the hedges and wreck their car. Nevertheless, it cheers me that this judge is standing up for common sense and the rights of the leadfooted like myself.
