« BackAA Ireland says Gardaí need better resources to tackle un-insured drivers

Garda - Yaris“Worse than useless” – that’s how AA Ireland sums up the tools available to Gardaí to tackle uninsured drivers.

An Oireachtas Committee is examining the rising costs of motor insurance after some premiums more than doubled in recent years.

Killorglin man Kian Griffin, who previously organised a national protest over the increase in premiums, is meeting with the committee today.

The AA’s Conor Faughnan told the committee earlier that Gardaí need better resources to tackle uninsured drivers, such as number plate recognition.
