We’ve all seen this sort of thing on our roads (unfortunately)-
- Middle lane hogs
- People not giving way
- Pushing in to queues
- Wheel spins
But since new measures have been brought in police officers can issue £100 fines and 3 points to offenders’ licences without taking drivers to court.
More serious offences will still be put through the courts and still involve higher fines and penalties.
As the type of offences above often go unpunished due to the amount of red tape involved to get the case to the courts, it is hoped that the new measures will improve driving standards.
Everyone at Today Team supports anything that is going to make our country’s roads a safer place, let’s hope the new measures make people think twice before acting foolishly behind the wheel!
