£100 on-the-spot fines for careless driving ‘won’t make roads safer,’ say motorists
Tuesday 13 August 2013
Most motorists think plans for on-the-spot fines for careless driving, including middle-lane hogging, will do nothing to improve road safety, according to a survey.
Nearly all (98 per cent) motorists fear the Government is failing to do enough to improve safety on the road, the poll found.
Giving the police power to issue £100 on-the-spot fines and three penalty points for careless driving is seen by many as little more than a money-generating exercise, the survey for Auto Trader found.
It added that the poll showed that 60 per cent reckoned this new measure “will make no impact on the safety of our roads”.
