New On-The-Spot Fines to Target Britain’s Persistently Reckless Drivers

The UK Department of Transport (DoT) intends to crack down on reckless drivers by granting its police force the power to issue on-the-spot fines for acts such as tailgating, undertaking (bad pun alert) and, “cutting up” other road users. These penalties will range from £80 to £100 (US$130 to US$162) and also apply to those caught using mobile phones.
It’s all part of a crackdown on what UK Transport Secretary Philip Hammond deems, “persistently dangerous drivers,” and will also encompass drunk and drug-affected road users as well.
