The Road Safety Authority says the driving ban handed out to Conor McGregor sends out a clear message that no matter how famous you are you have to obey the rules of the road.

The former UFC champion was put off the roads for 6 months after speeding on the N7 in Kildare in October last year.

McGregor pleaded guilty to doing 154km in a 100km zone at Naas District Court yesterday.

The Dubliner apologised to the court and said he didn’t know he was going that fast.

RSA Chairperson Liz O'Donnell believes the punishment McGregor has received sends out an important message.

O' Donnell said "Well I think the message sent yesterday by the coverage of that case was that no matter how powerful or famous you are you'll be put off the road with a significant fine."

"I think it is important that the law works for everybody"

Liz O'Donnell was speaking this morning at the launch of their annual safety awareness campaign for the Christmas period.
