Speeding motorists are still on roads

DANGEROUS drivers who have racked up an astonishing number of illegal motoring offences are still allowed on Doncaster’s roads, new research has revealed.

Two Doncaster motorists remain behind the wheel despite having 27 penalty points on their licences.

The pair received points for driving uninsured, speeding, driving without due care and attention, mobile phones offences, red light running and parking on double yellow lines.

Road safety charity Brake has now asked government ministers to dish out tougher treatment to drivers who endanger other lives.

Motorists can usually expect a six month ban when they reach 12 points. But over 1,000 people locally are still driving after arguing disqualification would cause exceptional hardship.

Julie Townsend, of Brake, said: “It’s time for the government to get tough with these selfish, irresponsible and potentially deadly drivers, and put a stop to their illegal and dangerous driving before it results in a devastating crash.”
