Should those who earn more pay bigger fines for speeding?

The road safety Authority is considering just that by linking speeding fines to drivers’ salaries.

New proposals, which are at the “early stages” of discussion, would see fines issued on the basis of the driver’s income and not a flat fee across the board as is currently the case.

Similar measures have been rolled out in the UK this week and the RSA confirmed that it would be watching with interest how the measures affect driving practices.

Do you think it would actually make a difference in road safety and make people more aware of their speed? Will it save any lives? Or is it simply a way of getting more money out of the taxpayers?

It brought out some serious road rage – or should that be ‘Radio Rage’.
