Cambs: Drivers Keep Licences After Maxing Out Points
A Heart investigation's found out 245 people in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire are still allowed to drive, despite reaching the maximum 12 points.
The freedom of information request also discovered amongst that number, were drivers who had more than the limit of 12 points.
Usually, any driver getting that number is banned, but magistrates can decide not to take a licence away after considering the seriousness of the offence and offender's personal circumstances.
Cambridgeshire Police Casualty Reduction Officer Steve Gedney told Heart it can be frustrating: "Once you've got to 9 points on your licence, there is no real excuse. You know the points are there, you know you've got to be particularly careful."
Officer Gedney says he believes drivers committing many offences should always be punished: "It's repetitive offences normally so they've been stopped once or twice in my view they clearly haven't learned their lesson and they've offended again and stiff sentences do help."
