The days when you could speed on roads on the European continent and avoid getting penalised back home are coming to an end. The European Parliament will this week vote on a new EU law that will enable EU countries to exchange vehicle registration data to ensure traffic offenders are punished. If, as expected, the law is passed then Ireland will have to implement it from May 2016. The laws will also apply to foreign European drivers committing traffic offences on Irish roads.
