Almost half of speeding cases before the courts in Donegal are struck out.
Over 1400 speeding offences have been listed in the county's courts over the last two and a half years.
46 per cent of these speeding offences listed in courts across Donegal between 2017 and the end of May of this year were struck out - because summonses had not been served.
The summonses were meant to be served on drivers who failed to pay a fixed-charge penalty notices.
The Irish Independent reports that Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan says a variety issues are causing the problem, including offenders evading being served the notice by Gardaí.
