Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

Implementation of the commitment in the programme for Government relating to the establishment of a dedicated traffic corps is being considered further in the light of the recent Government decision to significantly increase Garda numbers and the recent announcements by my colleague the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform, following discussions with my predecessor, that increased resources will be made available to the Garda, and that enforcement levels will increase especially at weekends.
