    On the one hand I don't see the problem - you shouldn't speed - and should always know who's driving your car, surley?

    There has obviously been a lot more of this going on that we realised. Personally I think its fair enough, no one in their right mind wouldn't know who was driving their car at any time - so it shouldn't be a problem. (And I am very anti cameras)

    Vehicle : Vectra C Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    All true...but, this comes down to the old "innocent until proven guilty" stuff. Our rights are being more and more eroded.. </rant>

    What happens if it's a family car, and three different people use it? Granted, most of the time you will know if you have been caught but there may be genuine people out there who don't??..

    Sounds a bit like a new game.. Pin the Points on the owner.

    My car is often used by 6 people. We all have an idea when we drive it. Do I now have to put a book in the car for people to sign to say when they drive it?
    Innocent until PROVEN guilty. I do not mind being caught speeding (dont particularly like it mind) but I wanna be caught by a Police Officer, not a crappy camera positioned for revenue not safety.

    I think this will encourage more points swapping. E.g. Mother taking points for young son to save him losing his license and retesting. etc.

    Very rare anyone ever drives my car but some people who do car share genuinely might not know/remember who was driving at any specific time.

    and the crazy thing is one of you would just have to hold your hands up - and possibly perjure yourself - rather than let the keeper take 6 pts.

    I can see both sides

    a) Why punish the owner if they really weren't driving!

    but

    b) Why let a crime go unpunished if the owner claims to not know who was driving?


    It think it is high time (not just on this subject) that the people of this country got themselves some balls. If you break the law, bend over and take the punishment - stop trying to get out of it, claiming you didn't know 'who done it' etc. What's happening to Britain?

    Not a case of just having to hold your hands up, if you did it you take the points, if you didn't you don't.

    I really can't see the issue, especially as an NIP takes just 14 days to come through, its not like people will have to look at last years diary to try and figure it out - it should be fairly memorable.

    Also I think it worthy of mention that quite often you either KNOW you've been done, or you think you have after passing a scamera van or whatever.
