New Fines To Come Into Force For Speeding Motorists

Transport Minister Shane Ross says it's about changing attitudes and saving lives.

Under the proposals, motorists found doing more than 30 kilometres per hour over the speed limit will face seven penalty points, court prosecution and a fine of up to €2,000.

The laws would see a sliding scale of penalties, depending on the speed, as opposed to the current €80 fine and three penalty points.
