25% of British Drivers Caught Speeding

Official figures have shown that some 25 per cent of Britain's motorists have been caught speeding over the past four years, generating some £500 million in fines. One million of the seven million caught were on multiple speeding convictions.

Safespeed, an organisation in the UK, said that "Driving licence points used to be given to risky drivers. That was why we had the system. … we're handing out points… to millions of safe drivers and the risky drivers can no longer be identified."

The system has failed so badly, that insurance companies no longer use it to identify risky drivers.
