Question

503. Deputy Robert Troy asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of fines that have been applied to persons driving without insurance in each of the years 2013 to 2017, by county in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25019/18]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy is aware, under the provisions of the Courts Service Act 1998, management of the courts is the responsibility of the Courts Service, which is independent in exercising its functions, and this includes the provision of information on the courts system.
However, in order to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have had enquiries made and the Courts Service has provided the following Report on the number of fines imposed for driving without insurance from 2013 to 2017, by Court Area (please note Report is by offence):
