Broadcasters George Hook and Matt Cooper appeared on Ireland AM this morning (Friday 3rd July) to discuss Minister for Transport Paschal Donohoe’s announcement yesterday that there will be fixed charge notice system for cyclists.

In an interview with Mark Cagney and Sinead Desmond, keen cyclist Matt came head-to-head with George, who said he “hates cyclists with a passion” and classed them all as “criminals”.

 Matt was quick to interject, pointing out George’s previous traffic offences, stating:

“He [George] goes on about criminals, George, you’re the criminal. You’ve got a string of road traffic offence convictions.

“I found three last night when I was searching the internet over a short period of time. There was a Judge who said that you were close to being, what was the phrase that was used? A ‘serial traffic offender’ and you were in court a number of times for breaking the speed limit. Speed is the most dangerous thing on the road.”
