I was shocked to read this article today. Here is an excerpt:
Gardaí behind the termination of penalty points for tens of thousands of motorists, including some high-profile people, have left a comprehensive trail of evidence for investigation.
Among those who have had their points terminated are two members of the judiciary

There are some legitimate reasons why points incurred could be terminated, such as speeding during a genuine emergency.

A high-profile GAA figure has had points terminated four times, three times this year, including two offences recorded in a three-day period.

A prominent figure from RTÉ has also had points terminated, as has a journalist who has been well-known for several decades.

A former Fine Gael councillor has also had points terminated, as has a man who has played rugby for Ireland. The RTÉ figure and the man who has played rugby for Ireland were both recorded doing 150km/h in a 120km/h.
A judge at the centre of the controversy around the termination of penalty points had points terminated three times. Records seen by The Irish Times show the judge’s car was recorded speeding two days in succession in April 2010 and in May 2012.

Once the judge’s car was recorded driving at twice the legal speed limit – 101km/h in a 50km/h zone. The next day the car was detected travelling at 90km/h in the same location.

On another occasion the car was detected doing 74km/h in a 60km/h zone.
Are we allowed speculate as to the identities of the people involved?

Sorry, didn't see other thread. Still, I wonder who they could be? Who is RTÉ correspondent that played rugby for Ireland?

Still Toland, if there's a priest or a bishop in there, you could dine out on that for a year, at least.

And if there was an FF'er as well,...Oh! my Jesus, can you imagine how your cup would floweth over?
...you could tell us what brave, principled speeding was being done by the soldiers od destiny. ;)

/MOD/ Nope. The speculation would certainly involve accusing named individuals of crimes (Speeding, dangerous driving etc etc) and inevitably end up with people speculating on how the named individual managed to convince the gardai to quash the fine. As mentioned, there's an existing thread on this. /MOD/
