    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.

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