70 vehicles seized from M50-toll dodgers 

70 vehicles have been seized this year from motorists who have accumulated large bills for the non-payment of M50 tolls. 

A total of 70 vehicles have been seized during the first half of this year, resulting in a considerable increase on the seizure rate in comparison to previous years; 44 cars were seized in 2020 and an even lesser amount of 40 vehicles were taken by authorities in 2018.   

On July 2nd, a spokesman for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) stated that the unpaid M50 bills from the sheriff-seized vehicles ranged from €5,000 to €15,000. 

The bills must be paid off before motorists can reclaim their cars.
