From RTE

Quote :

Imported vehicles
Following concerns about the number of cars being imported from
Britain and Northern Ireland, the Bill will mean an NCT assessment must
be carried out on such vehicles before they are registered in Ireland.
The Department says this is to ensure the cars are correctly
registered, with the aim of reducing the number of vehicles that may be
fitted with extras that are not currently declared.
In addition, vehicles brought into the State for more than 42 days will have to be temporarily registered in the State.
The Minister says he is responding to concerns from the motor
industry in this regard and these measures are one element of an
overall strategy to reduce the number of cars being imported to the
detriment of the industry here.

Very questionable. He is admitting that the measure exists to limit the free movement of goods within the common market. Very questionable indeed.

Typical - FT will probably demote him to the worst, from the second worst.

The Galway Cycling Campaign says that the new €200 levy is unfair to commuters who switch from car use to bicycle or public transport use.

I agree and think this is also a major issue for car poolers.

Good points eoin.

It's going to be implemented through the company payroll isn't it - the boss charges the staff and isn't there a provision that makes companies exempt if there are twice as many employees as parking spaces ? Could the boss of the company make people who cycle and carpool exempt from paying it and end up trading parking spaces with other adjacent companies Smile

Dublin Cork etc. could see companies trading car parking spaces in future. Big concrete chunks of currency. Nearly.
