ALMOST 6,000 VEHICLES SEIZED IN DUBLIN NORTH SINCE 2017 – BROUGHAN

Deputy Broughan recently received a reply to a Parliamentary Question he asked the Minister for Justice and Equality back in July 2018 on the number of vehicles seized in the Garda R-District (Coolock) for having no tax. Deputy Broughan, of course, has also been asking about the numbers of vehicles seized from unaccompanied learner drivers since the commencement of the ‘Clancy Amendment’ last December. The reply received from the Minister did not provide a breakdown on the reasons for vehicle seizures. The Parliamentary Reply stated that “statistics on vehicle seizures under section 41(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1994 (as amended) are available on PULSE, they are not compiled in such a way that easily allows for the disaggregation into specific offences (i.e. no tax, no NCT, no licence, etc.).”
