Road Traffic Bill 2004: Report and Final Stages.
Tom Morrissey (Progressive Democrats)
I thank the Minister of State for introducing this Bill so early in his term of office and for being successful in having it passed. It contains many important provisions regarding the metrification of road traffic signs and fixed penalty charges. What the Minister of State has done is good. The level of traffic and the number of deaths on our roads must be kept to the fore. We must ensure that the latter is reduced. The Bill will definitely prove to be of assistance in that regard. As a result of this, the Minister of State has done a good day's work.
