The car has become an integral facet of modern life. People use it to get to and from work, to take the kids to school, and to do their weekly shopping. Being without a car for one or two days while it is being repaired can lead to difficulty for some, but for others it can turn their lives upside down. A daily commute can become impossible, while travelling for work would be unfeasible. However, this is the reality that some people face if they are disqualified or banded from driving.
There are many road traffic offences that a person may be penalised for. These can range from those with a relatively minor penalty, such as jumping a red light to a minimal speeding offence, to those that carry automatic disqualification and even prison sentences, such as causing death by dangerous or reckless driving.
The majority of offences not only carry the potential for a financial penalty, but the issuance of penalty points onto a driving licence. Once a driver reaches 12 points, they should be disqualified from driving under the totting up procedure. There are exceptions, such as when it is possible to show that a person would suffer from extreme hardship if they were to be disqualified but this means that every offence carries the possibility of a driving ban.
The array of tools at the police’s disposal continues to increase. Cameras at red lights, on dangerous stretches of road, and that are deployed by mobile units not only record information but can automatically detect number plates and send a penalty notice through the mail. However, these systems are not infallible, especially when they require the intervention of people, who are still prone to making mistakes, and this means that a charge can be successfully challenged in some cases.
