Increase in penalty points for speeding, mobile phone activity and disregard for seat belts

The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD,  announced on Wednesday, the 30th July that a number of increases in penalty point offences take effect from 1st August 2014.  These changes are being made under the Road Traffic Act 2014.

Ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend Minister Donohoe said: ‘I am calling on all road users to exercise greater care and caution on the roads. These new measures will put road safety at the top of people’s minds and, I hope, bring about a greater culture of compliance with our life saving rules of the roads. It must be remembered that the penalty points system is a preventative road safety measure. If you don’t want to get points on your licence or a fine, then don’t speed, don’t use your mobile phone while driving and always wear your seatbelt, ensuring others in the car, particularly children are wearing theirs too.’
