Question

308. Deputy Eoin Ó Broin asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the numbers of fixed penalty notices, court prosecutions and convictions for breaches of the weight restrictions in place on the Kennelsfort Road in Palmerstown, Dublin 20, in each of the years 2014 to 2016 to date; and where court proceedings have taken place, if these proceedings were initiated by An Garda Síochána or the appeals of fixed penalty notices by the drivers. [6515/16]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will appreciate that I have no direct role in relation to the enforcement of road traffic legislation which is an operational matter for An Garda Síochána.
However, in order to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have written to the Garda Commissioner to request further information. I shall arrange for the information requested to be forwarded to him when it is available.
