    1 million motorists face losing their licences

    more than 1m drivers are now on 9 points and in danger of losing both their licences & possibly their jobs. I guess this is one way to reduce congestion but what it has to do with road safety is anyone's guess. 2million convictions every year and no drop in accidents or deaths on the road.

    I'm not suprised by that, I only got half a licence myself left, gotta drive safer for the next 4 years!

    It's only 3 years actually, and not safer, slower, the 2 aren't necessarily linked.

    Only woman i know can get away with that !
    a friend i know openly admitted she opens her blouse a wee touch once the blue lights come on ! its a right pain when its a female cop (but who knows lol)
    I bought a convertable in the wettest country in the world who says Scotsmen dont have a sense of humour !
