With private cars to blame for a large portion of Ireland's emissions, the OECD suggests measures including increasing the cost of petrol and diesel cars and using the planning system to cut reliance on private cars, to help Ireland meet energy goals.


that's great for cities/suburbs but what about the rural areas with little or no public transport? time to get the pony and trap out perhaps!

Our transport minister has that covered already, we can share cars among 10 families if we live in the countryside. The guys a genius.

OECD is a very legit source of information. They respond and advise to governmental requests ( they wrote a scathing analysis of car scrapping schemes aka " Cash for clunkers"). OECD advice is often ignored due to expediency. I do see the inevitability of various restrictions and they will phase in gradually as older generations ( the ones that are mostly interested in owning fore-mentioned cars) are departed from their possessions. Recent events show how much more work can happen without individual transportation. This will provide more evidence to move plans forward in urban centers.

It does seem, however, that if one's vintage vehicle is sufficiently old it will be exempt.
