Driving with points on your licence, whilst the DVLA have records of all fixed penalty endorsements they have no responsibility on court imposed sentences.
The BBC requested information under the freedom of information act and found that there are 322 people with 12 or more points on their licence who have not been banned from driving. The most shocking findings were one driver who has 21 points on their licence and another with 23.
This seems like an unfair system, anybody who exceeds 12 points should be given tougher penalties as they are repeat offenders.
The charity Road Peace were shocked at the findings and called for courts to do more. Road safety is paramount and those that abuse the system should be punished.
