Written answers (Question to Transport)

Responsibility for the enforcement of road traffic legislation does not fall under the remit of my Department and, accordingly, an evaluation of the technology described in the Deputy’s email has not taken place. An Garda Síochána may have information specifically pertaining to illegal racing on public roads using mobile phone applications.
