ABSTRACT
The article reports on the steps taken by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) of Ireland over concerns on drivers who refuse to provide breath test samples. RSA has been in contact with the Department of Transportation regarding the typographical error on the Mandatory Alcohol Testing legislation and is satisfied that in general the current legislation is robust. The Garda National Traffic Bureau assured the RSA that the issue with MAT will have no effect on their drink driving enforcement activity.
