TV3's Vincent Browne has been banned from driving for six months.
The political show host received the maximum number of penalty points over the last three years for speeding and using his phone while driving.
He told the Irish Daily Star: “I got penalty points for speeding and for the use of the mobile phone while driving on a number of occasions over three years.
“I believe I thoroughly deserved disqualification from driving for six months."
His ban began one month ago.
