Matching of driving offence to points with greater granularity will allow minor offences to be punished leading to improved driving behaviour.
The current system of 12 points and 3 point offences is overly harsh, and therefore discourages minor driving infractions from being penalised.
Increasing the number of points a driver holds (e.g. to 100) would allow a much greater scaling of penal-points to be defined, e.g. 25 for speeding (as per current), 3 for ‘sitting in the middle lane’
This would allow the penalisation to fit the level of offence and therefore be more likely to be applied, resulting in a general improvement in driving standards.
