Fixed penalty notices aim to combat dangerous driving

Dangerous driving should be tackled by introducing fixed penalty notices, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

RoSPA has welcomed the announcement that police will be given the power to issue fixed penalty notices for minor careless driving, including offences such as tailgating or middle lane hogging.

The government is aiming to introduce these changes in July following a consultation with police forces and road safety groups.

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: “RoSPA strongly supports the use of remedial driver training as an alternative to the fixed penalty notice. It is better to seek to change offenders’ behaviour and help them to improve their driving or riding so they are less likely to re-offend.”

Mr Clinton went on to say that RoSPA supported last year’s consultation as it will make it easier for laws to be enforced across the UK.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801596180-ADNFCR
