Almost eight cars every day are being seized by gardaí from unaccompanied learner drivers, according to this news story today. Since new legislation was introduced on December 22nd, more than 377 vehicles have been impounded.

The Irish Times would like to hear from readers: Have you had your car seized? If you are a learner, do you drive without being accompanied by a driver who has held a licence for at least two years? If you are not a learner driver, do you agree with the seizures, or do you think the legislation is too harsh?
