Up to 28,000 prosecutions at risk after road traffic law ruling
Up to 28,000 prosecutions are at risk because of a legislative error in the Road Traffic Act 2016.
In a written judgment issued yesterday, Ms Justice Úna Ní Raifeartaigh said parts of the law concerning fixed charge notices breached the constitutional right to a fair trial.
She had said earlier this month that said that section 35.2 and section 44.10 of the Road Traffic Act 2010, as amended by section 27 of the Road Traffic Act 2016, are contradictory.
Transport Minister Shane Ross has said his Department is now examining the written judgment, The Irish Times reports.
