Posted this before .If you look before and after every Exit there are overhead gantries to hold the cameras to record you getting and off the 50 !
What this does is deter people from using the M50 Dublin ring road and clogging up inner roads instead.

The future Silver is Road Pricing .You will pay for every Km you drive with different tarriffs for different roads at different times .Port tunnell is a good example charge you more when its busy with trucks and they dont want cars .
I got my eflow bill this month and it was just the maintenance charge. I strongly suspect many will follow suit, or simply not pay.
This is from the digital redtop:
Fines totaling €164,000 handed to 13 motorists who didn't pay M50 tolls
A fine of €25,000 was given to a commercial vehicle owner who had 216 unpaid journeys.

THIRTEEN MOTORISTS HAVE been hit with fines totalling €164,000 after they failed to appear in court and ignored reams of warning letters for repeatedly dodging M50 tolls.

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), the State agency dealing with road and public transport infrastructure, prosecuted them at Dublin District Court yesterday.

However, despite being summonsed, they did not attend the hearings, which went ahead in their absence.

Judge Anthony Halpin handed down fines ranging from €5,000 to €25,000, to be paid within six months.

He also ordered them to pay €350 in prosecution costs.

Twelve were regular private car owners, each with five sample counts for unpaid tolls from January to April. The court imposed fines of €15,000 in seven cases, including a motorist sent over a thousand warning letters about 498 outstanding tolls.

One case involved a commercial vehicle owner who received the highest fine yesterday for 216 unpaid trips on the motorway.

Each one would have cost €5.40 or just over €1,382 for all the journeys, but he was fined €25,000.

TII also revealed the motorists’ overall record of unpaid charges and hundreds of warning letters sent before court proceedings commenced.

The judge noted the types of vehicles and their records of outstanding charges. In each case, he heard the number of unpaid tolls and details of the level of engagement with the motorway operators. He also noted that they failed to turn up for the proceedings despite being sent summonses.

The TII could demonstrate which motorists made efforts to pay for some journeys, and they received less severe fines.

TII posted hundreds of warning letters to most defendants before bringing the court prosecutions, which can carry a potential custodial sentence.

The agency had certificates detailing the registered owners of the vehicles as well as pictures of them passing the toll gantry on specific dates.

Prosecuting counsel Edward Doocey BL (instructed by Pierse Fitzgibbon Solicitors) said the defendants were not in court, but Judge Halpin agreed to his application to proceed in their absence.

Counsel called on a TII witness to confirm each vehicle’s ownership records, the number of passages, and payment history.

The judge heard that most did not engage with the transport agency, and some had recently ceased being owners of the cars subject to the prosecutions. However, the TII could establish they were the owners at the time of the unpaid tolls.

The court can impose fines of up to €5,000 per charge and a six-month sentence.

However, it remains the practice of the motorway authority to select habitual non-payers to face criminal proceedings.

The standard M50 toll for a private car, €3.20, has to be paid before 8 pm the following day or there is a €3 penalty for missing the deadline.

Motorists get 14 days to pay for the journey and the initial penalty or face a more significant fee.

The charge ramps up after 56 days; warning letters and court proceedings follow if it remains unpaid.

Commercial and goods vehicle owners pay higher tolls. In all cases, the registered vehicle owner is liable even if they were not driving.

Another issue with Conolly is the continuous white line outside.Empty taxis driving passed on the opposite side of the road can't legally turnaround to pick up passengers.

Then when you do pick up on it often people are going northside which involves a huge detour that pisses off the customer or you end up doing the illegal u-turn to get pointed in the right direction.Not very taxi friendly.

I've gotten caught out with the junkies coming out of Sheriff street a couple of times.Got paid eventually but it's not worth the hassle with the shit they have going on in their lives.Not my favorite rank.It only really moves when a few trains come in together.

Yeah I noticed that about it being awkward for taxis picking up there alright. Forgot to ask the driver I got what was wrong with his car, id guess the shocks were gone, very uncomfortable trip, nice guy though.

I think you'd struggle to turnover less than €40/hour if you work for Free Now. You could probably double that with ambassadorship, priority and prebookings.

You could always rent your yoke out, I guess.

40 quid an hour ?  ???

Yu mite get that between 12.00 an 04.00 durin the Christmas vomit season

Working nights for Free Now would cost them another €1,300+ per month - assuming a 40 hour week.
