New Device to Enable Gardaí Identify Uninsured Drivers at Checkpoints

Stuart Insurances, Garda Checkpoint

In an attempt to clamp down on the rise in the numbers taking to the roads without insurance, Gardaí will be able to use handheld devices to instantly tell whether a vehicle is insured.  Experts estimate there are around 150,000 uninsured drivers on Irish roads.

In today’s news reports, we are being told that a new database of rogue drivers could be completed by the end of the year.  This means that Gardaí will be able to scan a number plate to see if a vehicle is insured when they check a car on the roadside.  The new system will be linked to the database of uninsured drivers.
