Still behind the wheel despite the 12 points

TWENTY FIVE drivers in Fife have been allowed to remain on the road despite having 12 penalty points or more on their licence.

The figure was uncovered by the Co-operative Motor Group, following a freedom of information request to the DVLA.

Usually when drivers accrue a dozen points they are liable to be disqualified under the ‘totting-up’ system.

Courts are allowed however to use their discretion when it comes to deciding if a driver should be banned.

Throughout the UK there are almost 9000 drivers on 12 or more point with 300 of those living in Scotland.
