Speeding motorists may be ordered to take part in a safety course instead of getting penalty points.
New proposals would see first-time offenders undergo an education programme on the potential consequences of breaking the speed limit, instead of paying a fine or receiving points on their license.
The RSA is in talks with experts in the UK where a similar system is already in place.
Barry Aldworth, PR Officer with AA Ireland, said the initiative had proved to be effective.
He said: "The typical person would have been driving 10 or 20 years and had a clean licence during that time. They were maybe caught doing 54 in a 50 km/hour zone.
"It's about giving them an opportunity to learn why speeding even at that lower threshold can be dangerous, but avoid the ramifications of having penalty points on a licence."
