The Garda Inspectorate

The Garda Inspectorate fulfils its objective by carrying out inspections or enquiries on the operation and/or administration of the Garda Síochána.  The three Inspectorate members, as ex London Metropolitan and Police Service of Northern Ireland PSNI Police Officers use the  incorrect TRL designed Highway Code stopping formula based on a 0.67 seconds reaction time, with braking distances for one-way roads and beyond emergency standard, introduced by Parliament on 31 07 1946.  Gardai now use the 1981 TRRL1004 AR Quimby and GR Watts stopping formula based on a driver reaction time of 2.20 seconds and also with braking distance for one -way roads and beyond emergency standard.  There is a differece of 1.53 seconds 51 metres when stopping from a speed of 120 km/h between that outlined by Gardai and the Garda Inspectorate.  The Garda Inspectorate members are;

  • Mark Toland Chief Inspector, Ex London Metropolitan Police
  • Pauline Shields Deputy Chief Inspector, Ex PSNI 
  • Hugh Hume Deputy Chief Inspector, Ex PSNI

Penalty Point Department Minister Ross Ireland

In 2019, police performance is judged on the number of penalty points issued, but with 20 more fatalities in 2018 than 92 years ago in 1926 and road fatalities 10 higher so far in Ireland in 2019 than in the same period in 2018, it is clear that penalty are 'Revenue Raisers' and not 'Road Safety Measures'.  If Governments want money let them put tax on fuel or other items but not penalise young people with penalty points for travelling 1 km/h over the speed set by the police Radar Gun and incorrectly timed amber traffic lights. Penalty points on a driving licence bar drivers from joining some police and other employments and driving positions while insurance premiums are increased.  Why should Ireland have differnt penalty point systems to that used in Germany and other countries?

Royal College of Physicians Ireland Traffic Medicine 1654 - 2019

Professor Desmond O’Neill Royal College Physicians Ireland RCPI is responsible for leading the development and implementation of a national framework for standards in traffic medicine in Ireland.  This cannot happen successfully as, he is misled by Gardai, the Road Safety Authority and Health and Safety Authority, on stopping distances, alcohol checkpoint tests, road traffic fatalities, injury and damage crashes as outlined earlier.

When the Medical Bureau of Road Safety MBRS discovered the overreporting by Gardai of Mandatory Alcohol Tests by 1.5 million, Gardai claimed, “There was no career advancement or other obvious rewards to be gained from engaging in this practice”, but threatened to transfer Gardai who failed to achieve quotas.  My research discovery sent by registered post 07 06 2019 to Commissioner Drew Harris was not allowed to reach him.

I discovered on 25 05 1997 that the Rules of the Road stopping distances in Ireland are incorrect, designed by the Transport Research Laboratory TRL, introduced by Parliament in the Highway Code on 31 07 1946 and they are now unable to locate the formula.  TRL refered me to their client the RSA, who refered me to TRL.  In 2007 Gardai changed to the incorrect TRL AR Quimby and GR Watts 2.20 second driver reaction time stopping formula.

Professor Desmond O’Neill, I request that you examine the Coroner’s Report by Dr. Brian J. Farrell on the death of Christopher Moore 3 years and 11 months on 25 05 1997, who was fatally injured when struck by a car driven by Garda Raymond Grafton who stopped 20 metres after impact. 

 

Professor Desmond O’Neill I request that you observe as each member of your team or a random selection of team members from each organisation attempt to disprove my research discovery by demonstration while using VBOX, the world’s most accurate recorder of speed in time and distance. 

The aim of my research is to eliminate road crashes worldwide by establishing the standard and speed limitation of rule makers, roads cars and their drivers, now and not by 2050.  The Driving ScoreCard System and Research can do this.   Your team is listed as follows:

Conclusion

Road crashes resulting in death injury and damage appear to result in a source of revenue for many who have no desire to change or eliminate road crashes.  Police after 150 years of road crash investigation are credited with 'a return of work' for issuing one in four of the drivers in Ireland with penalty points, closing roads, delaying the general public and allowing the Accident and Emergency Departments to be overcrowded with the dead and injured.

Having made my discovery in 1997 that the Highway Code stopping distances in the Rules of the Road in Ireland were incorrect and drivers could not be trained to a safe standard in 12 hours with the aid of dual controls; The Gardai, although they had their own research departments, often took 12, 18 or 24 months to respond to my queries or often failed to respond as some retired and others led me into cull-de-sacs in other organisations.

These cull-de-sacs are outlined in my research and include Gardai referring me to the Department of Environment, Road Safety Authority RSA and Transport Research Laboratory TRL.  TRL referred me to their client the RSA, who referred me to TRL who prepared a new stopping formula for SRA, not RSA. The Highway Code referred me to the USA, the British Government referred me to the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency DVSA, who referred me to the Highway Code..

The situation appeared to get even more complicated as the European Commission EC referred me to Europe Direct ED who failed to deal with the issue and were guided by TRL as the National Standards Agency of Ireland and the Irish National Accreditation Board failed to deal with the mistakes.

After 150 years of police crash investigation and 72 years of road safety advertising in cinemas, radio and television, I was referred to the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland BAI by the RSA and advertisers. The BAI simply agreed with the RSA, advertisers and Gardai, but declined to disprove my research findings by demonstration. 

The BAI members do not have an appeals system, be drivers or licence holders, so; Is road safety steeped in collusion, malpractice and possible corruption as those involved in red light and speed detection camera enforcement are sent to prison.

If this is the case will Ministers for Transport Shane Ross and Justice Charles Flannagan allow these mistakes to continue and pass to the next generation of Government Ministers in Ireland and worldwide?

The aim of my research is to eliminate road crashes worldwide, What is your aim?
