Defective tyres

On this month’s traffic segment Garda Derek Cloughley followed on from the Forensic Collision feature that was broadcast. Garda Cloughley discussed speeding and the catastrophic consequences of such action. The Road Safety Authority will publish the findings of a pre-crash behaviour analysis in relation to speed on the 28th April at their annual safety conference, in advance of the May Bank Holiday. Garda Cloughley advised the public on a number of safety issues surrounding this topic.

Garda Cloughley also discussed defective tyres and the new Fixed Charge Notice and 2 penalty points and a fine that can now be issued for defective tyres.
