Hello, Can someone please explain to me how there is apparently over 150,000 motorists in Ireland with no insurance cover ? As I understand it, every car owner is on a register. Also, as I understand it, when someone tries to pay their road tax, the need their motor insurance policy. So, am I correct in understanding that: We also have over 150,000 private motorists driving around with no motor insurance (if it's less, then how did they pay their road tax, without a current motor insurance policy) ? Ireland in the 21st centuary is unable to run a simple electronic comparison to check the register of car owners with a list of motor insurance policies, to see who does and who does not have motor insurance, then take the obvious follow up action ? What am I missing here ?
