Points pique

TWO-thirds of drivers think the UK penalty points system for speeding convictions is unfair and fails to deter people.

A survey conducted by insurance intermediary the A&A Group found that only 36% of respondents felt the current system was adequate.

It also found that the youngest drivers, aged between 16 and 25, had the most points on their licences, with an average of seven.

This number dropped as the age of the drivers went up. The group’s chief executive, Tony Allen, said: ‘Motorists have lost faith in the points system so now is the time to take a fresh look at how best to police the roads.’
