1 August, 2017 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile

Sinn Féin’s spokesperson for North-South Integration, Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile, has welcomed today’s news that driving disqualifications are to be recognised across the entirety of Ireland.

Speaking this evening, An Seanadóir Ó Donnghaile said:

“Evidence shows we work best when we work together and any move to harmonise road safety & enforcement measures across Ireland is most welcome.

“The move to mutually recognise driving disqualifications is a welcome first step in what can and should be a broader all-Ireland campaign of awareness, safety, and eventually the recognition of existing penalty points in both the North and the South. 

“This measure can help save lives on our roads and that is very welcome indeed.”
