Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. Dear *****, I would advise you to get yourself a good solicitor and barrister to defend you in court as they may find something wrong with the Summons and get the penalty points overturned. Essentially, only 60% of Summons lead to a successful prosecution. So there are a lot of Summons which don't lead to any penalty being imposed. Accordingly, as your job is on the line, I would advise you to challenge the outcome in court. Certainly, the penalty for driving without reasonable consideration is one which is difficult to prove in a court prosecution. This is because it involves evidence of what other road users were doing at the time of the taking place of the incident.
