Peterborough banned driver had 51 points on licence

Full story https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-48160507

A "prolific road traffic offender" pulled over by police was driving while disqualified and with 51 points on his licence.
Officers stopped a car in Lincoln Road, Peterborough, on Friday after they recognised the man behind the wheel as a banned driver.
On Twitter, Beds Cambs and Herts Road Policing said: "He has 51 points on his licence. Yes, that is 51."
The driver was reported to court and his car seized, police said.
"He's clearly a prolific road traffic offender and has amassed a significant number of points in a relatively short period of time," a police spokesman said.
"He was recognised by one of the officers who had given him points previously and knew he was disqualified.
"If he continues to commit offences we will continue to put him in front of the courts and allow them to hand over whatever sentence they deem appropriate."
A driver is usually banned after amassing 12 points.

This is where set fines fail.
This person can afford to pay, afford to replace the car.

A percentage of income would have a better effect.


Courts are desperately trying to avoid jail terms for over crowded prisons.

51pts before the latest stop is ridiculous.

He is an uninsured driver, with complete disregard for the rest of us.
Do you think he would stop if there was an accident?

He is a killer in waiting.

A jail term wouldn't keep him off the roads once the sentence is served,
but whilst he is inside, the streets are that much safer.

To my mind he should be permanently banned from driving. He will probably still drive but but this is where very punitive measures should be taken such as a huge fine whereby he cannot afford a car (was driving an MB when stopped this time).

Yes, the UK prisons are overcrowded but some need to be squeezed in.
