Road Traffic Law Handbook

A Guide to Irish Law

By Katie Dawson

In Ireland, the area of road traffic law is mammoth, with 11 road traffic Acts since 1961 and countless statutory instruments. This book is an easy and accurate reference to the categories of offences routinely before Irish courts, giving up-to-date information as to applicable penalties/disqualification periods. Topics include: a list of penalty point offences and fixed charge penalty offences, setting out the charges which can accrue under particular sections of the road traffic Acts, applicable defenses and the penalties that apply, including disqualification periods. The book also refers to relevant Irish case law in respect of drunk driving cases, and it contains reference to the provisions of the new Road Traffic Act 2010.
