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.”
