Written off Vehicles

As the standard of vehicles on our roads is fundamental to road safety this consultation proposes ways in which the current administrative system to deal with written-off vehicles can be enhanced.  (Closed 4th February 2011)

What is this consultation about

The Department of Transport and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) has launched a public consultation process seeking the views of all interested parties on proposals to regulate written-off vehicles in Ireland.

In 2008 an administrative system was put in place in Ireland for dealing with written-off vehicles.  As the effective regulation of a written-off vehicle is important to the safety of all road users consideration is now being given to strengthening the current system through the introduction of a legislative framework for managing written off vehicles.   

The consultation document “Regulating Written-off Vehicles” sets out Ireland’s current policy and considers best practice internationally and seeks the input of stakeholders on regulation, classification and safety issues associated with written-off vehicles. 

Your comments

The outcome of the consultation will be considered in finalising recommendations to the Minister for Transport on this important issue. 

The consultative process lasts until Friday 4th February 2011.
