Many motorists in Ireland avoiding penalty points – Car insurance at Paddy Compare!

A recent study by the State’s financial watchdog revealed that up to one fifth of motorists have been able to avoid penalty points. The report showed significant weaknesses in the fixed charge notice system. This was particular evident during 2011 and 2012 when approximately 850,000 road traffic offences warranted the issuing of fixed charge notices and around 11% remained unpaid or not answered in court. The acceptable reasons for lack of charging varied. From drivers speeding because they were late for a religious ceremony, penalty points could not be attached to a company with company car offences, or late entry of data and court proceedings not initiated within 6 months.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have been caught and received penalty points on your driving licence, we all know how expensive and difficult it can be to find affordable car insurance in Ireland. That’s why at Paddy Compare you can compare car insurance and convicted driver insurance free of charge.
