Poor judg(ment)

• I wish to express my shock at the outrageous €600 fine imposed on Judge James O'Donohue at Clifden Court (Irish Independent, July 28).

The judge was merely driving along the road, minding his own business, when a garda stopped him and requested him to take a breath test, on the flimsy pretext of trying to make our roads safer.

Naturally, like any law-abiding citizen, the Circuit Court judge rejected such an impertinent request, thereby exposing himself to the full rigour of Section 12 (3) of the Road Traffic Act.
