Did anyone read the full article?
Just finished it.
Only one charged so far.
Meters have been recalled and given software updates.

I'd say the 250 is based on assumptions that would be unlikely to be ascertainable beyond reasonable doubt.
I'm not too sure about that, if'n the forces that be had a receipt roll long enough to print off all his transactions from his meter and see how many of the 250 were done on tariff 3 ??


Exactly they went through his meter
The meter records can be downloaded from the time of installation, hence the software updates on a certain brand of meter.

The meter data can only confirm that the meter recorded the fares incorrectly which is probably a single fixed penalty offence attracting a c.€40 fine. It can't prove what each client paid, witnesses would be required for that.

Inference may be drawn since he admitted guilt M'Lud!

Inference isn't proof. More likely that he'll agree to plead guilty to a sample charge or two.

Guilty plea plus mitigation of financial trouble, separated, drink and or drug problems should get it down to a €40 fine.

The meter receipts will show the date and what tariff was charged.
I'm guessing that he had his meter doctored to run on tariff 3 constantly ??

Provided the receipts are collected from clients who confirm they paid the amount shown. If they are merely collected from the meter or the ashtray in the car there is no proof that the client was asked for, or paid, the amounts recorded.

It does appear that he has admitted Guilt

Apparently so... as FDS used to remind us, there's a reason we drive cabs for a living!

That particular meter allowed you to add extra extras on, so any fare that had over €9 in extras would be deemed to have been overcharged. All taken from his meter of course

Saw yer man on the quays yesterday with Xpert stickers on his car.Surely If this story was true Vinny would have booted him out.Unless of course he's ex Xpert?Or renting from Vinny?Very odd.

Two different meter brands were targeted.
