Warrington man with 36 points on his licence not banned from driving

Warrington Guardian: Warrington man with 36 points on his licence not banned from driving Warrington man with 36 points on his licence not banned from driving

A MAN from Warrington has the second highest number of driving penalty points without being banned - according to a new report.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists found the man racked up 36 points, when caught driving without insurance six times in less than two weeks between February and March 2012.

A man from Liverpool accumulated 45 licence penalty points in November, according to figures released by the DVLA following a freedom of information request.

The points were all for failing to disclose the identity of the driver or exceeding statutory speed limit on a public road, between October 1 2012 and June 20, 2013. This beats the previous record of 42 points.

I thought the Police confiscated your car if driving without insurance or did he have access to numerous cars? Anyway, it's a joke and only encourages other idiots to flout the law as well.

Heard this story on the radio this morning, apparently they get away with it by not turning up at court! The report said that some courts are not keen on banning people if they are not in front of them!!

Sorry but if this imbecile had smashed into another car or worse killed someone would he still have a licence. I have always had insurance and dread the day that some idiot smashes into my car and I have to pay for the damage while they walk free!!!! No justice in this country

being caught 3 times with no insurance should be a minimum of 5 years prison that would slow it down.
we need to stop this now, as the cost gets past on to us drivers.

plus all the documentary shows with cops in show you 9 out of 10 people with out insurance are on a crime run.

road crime needs heavier sentences.


And every migrant should have to do get UK insurance.

The police have the power to confiscate the vehicle at the roadside and then charge the keeper for storage with an option to scrap it after 14 days, there's no excuse for allowing this character to beat this process half a dozen times in a fortnight. None.
And he's still got a licence! There's got to be story about this one...

to be fair if they're going to drive without insurance they'll probably drive without a valid license too.
i agree on the mandatory sentence for not having insurance, get stopped and not have any you have 14 days to organise, if you're stopped after that and still not sorted, jail.

As usual the media have only supplied enough information with this story to grab attention. (A bit like some people on here just regurgitating information without researching or adding value)

He may of been caught by an automatic camera and only had one appearance in court.

You do not know the circumstances involved.
