Or do they still deserve some privacy?

THE ROAD SAFETY Authority is planning to publish the names of disqualified drivers online, similar to how details of tax defaulters and disqualified creditors are made public.

The Irish Times reports that people will only be named if they are disqualified by the courts, as opposed to if they clock up 12 penalty points.

The RSA’s chief executive told the paper that an attitude change is needed in Irish society towards this kind of serious motoring offence.

We want to know what you think of the plans: Should disqualified drivers by named and shamed?


Poll Results:

Yes (5889)
