Gardaí warn fines can be given out from Monday

GARDAÍ have warned that people engaging in cross-border travel from 7am on Monday (February 8) could be fined €100.

A statement just released by the force explained, “An Garda Síochána wishes to advise people engaging in cross-border travel that from 7am on Monday, February 8, 2021, anyone not ordinarily resident in this State engaging in travel in this jurisdiction without a reasonable excuse may be liable to receive a fine of €100.

“From Monday, if enforcement is required, Gardaí will issue a fixed penalty notice for €100 to every adult present who is in breach of this regulation. For example, if the driver of a car has two adult passengers then each of the three adults in the car will receive a €100 fine.”
