There’s Gonna Be A Major Change For Clamping In Ireland


Finally, good news for people who find themselves clamped on the reg. 

Due to be signed into law by the Minister for Transport very shortly is a new law that will cap all clamping fees at just €100.

The law was passed 17 months ago. 

According to the Irish Independent, the capping law was delayed by the previous minister Shane Ross to allow the National Transport authority a chance to train staff and “enforce the new rules”.

The Vehicle Clamping Act will set the maximum release fee at €100, while relocation will cost €50. 

This follows reports that certain private companies are charging as much as €300 to have a car de-clamped in Dublin.

The new decision will be subject to a Dáil vote.
