This book is an easy and accurate reference to the categories of offences routinely before Irish courts, giving up-to-date information as to applicable penalties/disqualification periods. Topics include: a list of penalty point offences and fixed charge penalty offences, setting out the charges which can accrue under particular sections of the road traffic Acts, applicable defenses and the penalties that apply, including disqualification periods.
