RoSPA supports fixed penalty fines for careless driving

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is supporting changes to fixed penalties for careless driving.

It believes that clear guidance and monitoring are required to guarantee the modifications are applied consistently, with the penalty being £100 and three points on a driver’s license.

As well as this, fixed penalty levels for the majority of motoring offences, such as not wearing a seatbelt and using a handheld mobile phone while driving will increase to £100.

The fixed penalty will allow the police to offer educational training as an alternative to endorsement, which should hopefully reduce the number of careless drivers. 

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: “RoSPA strongly supports the proposal to offer 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.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801626589-ADNFCR
