Irish drivers could face a new tiered system of speeding fines depending on how fast they are going over the limit.
The new graduated penalty system is set to be brought before the Cabinet today by Transport Minister Shane Ross, the Irish Times reports.
Minister Ross is also proposing on-the-spot fines and penalty points for people who do not have their driving licence when pulled over.
If a motorist cannot present their licence to Gardaí on the roadside, Minister Ross suggests that they will face an €80 fine and penalty points.
Drivers would no longer have the chance to show their licence at a garda station at a later date.
The same report would also see people charged a variety of speeding fines according to how much they breach the limit.
For example, someone caught 10 kilometres an hour over will get two penalty points and an €80 fine.
But a driver 30 kilometres over would get six points on their licence and a €200 fine.
