A wheelchair user from Listowel says she’s concerned new penalties for parking on footpaths won’t be enforced.

The Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, has signed regulations doubling from €40 to €80 the fixed charge penalty for motorists caught parking on footpaths, cycle tracks and bus lanes.

The new €80 penalties will come into operation on the 1st February.
