The fine is due to double, an increase from €80 to €160. At the event the RSA will also launch its interactive Virtual Learning Platform for road safety education. The Virtual Learning Platform was developed by the RSA’s Nationwide Road Safety Education Service as an interactive 3D virtual space that provides a fun, safe learning environment for road safety education in the classroom and at home.
