A judge has again been forced to postpone a number of speeding cases  at Letterkenny District Court because of a loophole in the law.

There are still a number of question marks hanging over the new GoSafe privately-run speed cameras.

One relates to the authority by the people operating the cameras to send summonses to Gardai so they can be processed.

The other relates to the delivery of summonses.

A number of people have said they have simply not received their summonses and because the fines are delivered by ordinary post, there is no proof of delivery.

The court was told that Inspector Kevin Gately is liaising with the Ombudsman in relation to the matters.

Judge Paul Kelly again adjourned a number of cases and remarked that a “fiver’ could sort some of the problems out by registered post.
