    Default on the spot fines for careless driving planned

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13356057

    "Police will get powers to fine careless drivers, rather than taking them to court, as part of a government strategy to make Britain's roads safer.

    Ministers say motorists who tail-gate, undertake or cut others up often go unpunished and that introducing instant penalties would be more efficient.

    Offenders would get a fine of at least £80 and three points on their licence".
    (BBC, 2011)

    I would want proof but sounds like a good idea to me.

    Nothing worse than someone sitting on your bumper or cutting you up.

    Seem to always be Police out and about when I am on Motorways
    Spending more time fulfilling easy targets than actual "policing"

    As for this FPN on a Careless Driving charge, this is just to align this offence in the same way as other offences
    Thus people will have the opportunity to avoid a criminal record for this, by accepting the FPN instead
    However, it is not for the Police to decide such a serious charge as this, it is for the courts

    Too right mate, the police can only give you a ticket if they are there to witness the offence happening.

    And introduce FPNs for wilfully driving too slowly disrupting traffic flow, and causing accidents . Reintroduce the 'Green Cross Code' and penalize jaywalkers.
