Driver with 45 points still on road

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

A MAN from Liver­pool is still al­lowed to drive even though he has ac­cu­mu­lated 45 penalty points for fail­ing to dis­close the iden­tity of the driver or ex­ceed­ing statu­tory speed limit on a pub­lic road. This beats the pre­vi­ous record of 42 points.

Si­mon Best, the chief ex­ec­u­tive of the road safety char­ity IAM which re­quested the fig­ures, said: “Last Septem­ber, the IAM high­lighted a driver with 42 points on their li­cence and we were told that more would be done to ad­dress the is­sue. In­cred­i­bly, we now have some­one driv­ing with 45 points.

“The DVLA must rapidly over­haul their sys­tems and work­ing re­la­tion­ships with the courts to en­sure that the whole prin­ci­ple of 12 points and you are off the road is not un­der­mined.”
