Higher fines for driving offences

New penalties are to apply for road contraventions and driving offences when the House of Representatives approves a bill amending various criminal matters.
Driving along a priority vehicle lane will now incur a fine of €100. Driving on the right (outer lane) not for overtaking purposes and without indicator, also incurs a fine of €100. Driving a motor vehicle while holding and/or using a hand-held mobile telephone or any other similar hand-held device while the vehicle is in motion, incurs a fine of €100.
Having tinted windows – driving a vehicle when the glazing of that vehicle does not allow a visible light transmission – has a fine of €100.
Any person who drives a vehicle through or emerges a red light shall be guilty of an offence and on conviction liable to a fine of €250.
