Cyclists Face €40 On-The-Spot Fines For These Seven Offences From Today
Running a red light is now a thing of the past
The Department of Transport is clamping down on road traffic offences from today with a fixed fine of €40.
With May to September statistically being the most dangerous months for Irish cyclists, it's Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe's hope that the new fines will improve road safety across the board.
"As a committed cyclist myself, I am of the view that the introduction of fixed charge notices for cyclists will increase awareness among cyclists and reinforce the message that cyclists have a responsibility in relation to obeying road traffic law.”Paschal Donohoe
The charges, which are listed in the graphic from the Department of Transport below, are in effect as of today.
