Poll: Should fines for speeding be linked to how much you earn?

Your daily bite-sized ballot break.

HOW WOULD YOU feel if Irish motorists who were found speeding were hit with fines that are linked to how much they earn?

The RSA is yet to decide if it would recommend the scheme to the Department of Transport but told today that it is considering the move by the British government to have new speeding fines calculated on an offender’s income.

Do you think this is a good idea?
