Four left wing TDs have called for an independent inquiry into allegations that thousands of fines and penalty points issued to motorists have been cancelled.
Deputies Clare Daly, Mick Wallace, Joan Collins and Luke Flanagan say the internal garda inquiry instigated into the matter is not sufficient.
The deputies published 20 examples of cancelled penalty points which underpin their call for an independent inquiry.
No names or locations are given in the examples, but they include a superintendent terminating tickets for the wives of other gardaí.
Other examples include a driver who previously had speeding tickets quashed, a motorist who had tickets for no tax, speeding and using a mobile phone all quashed by the same garda and a number of motorists involved in serious or fatal accidents having speeding tickets terminated in the weeks or months after those incidents.
The deputies said they will not publish the names of thousands of motorists contained in a dossier based on information in the Garda Pulse system as they were warned off doing so by the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner this morning.
