A new system for fining motorists caught speeding will be presented to Cabinet today.
It would see people charged a higher amount the more they’re over the limit.
These proposals will see a new graded system put in place for speeding fines.
It means someone caught 10 km an hour over the limit will get 2 penalty points and an €80 euro fine.
But a driver 20 km over the limit would get 4 points and a €150 fine.
And anyone caught 30 km over would get 6 points on their licence and a €200 fine.
According to the Irish Times, Transport Minister Shane Ross will also propose an €80 fine and automatic penalty points for any driver who doesn’t have their licence to hand if they’re pulled over by Gardaí.
