No more avoiding your insurance payout, as new technology is coming in to allow Gardaí to clamp down on the culprits faster than ever.

From September of this year, Gardaí will be able to tell if a car is insured simply by scanning the registration from the roadside.

The new automated system is part of an effort to keep illegal and uninsured drivers off the road.

The AA's Conor Faughnan explains how the new technology will work:

“Essentially what will happen is every time you pass a Garda car, the Garda car's onboard camera will read your registration number, immediately tell the guard if that car is insured and who is insured to drive it.”
