Allow car pooling in Ireland

Allow car pooling in Ireland

Change NTA regulations to allow car sharing and car pooling in Ireland

Why is this important?

Car pooling is an effective if somewhat modest way to reduce carbon emission from commuting and works well in other Eupropean countries, but in Ireland, the National Transport Authority has been blocking it on the ground that it break taxi licensing laws. See https://www.thejournal.ie/ride-sharing-ireland-2185650-Jun2015/.
From my correspondence with NTA, it is clear that for car sharing / car pooling to happen in Ireland, these regulations need to change.
In other words,it becomes a political issue.
And so it should be, because it also promotes a culture of sharing and as such contributes to building the new economical paradigm that we so badly need to tackle the converging crisis of the 21st century.
