Cycling UK call for end to loophole that allows drivers with 12 points to avoid ban | road.cc
The group want the law to be better defined so that only the most extreme examples are accepted
Cycling UK is calling for an end to the ‘exceptional hardship’ loophole which allows drivers to avoid bans, despite having 12 penalty points on their licence.
To emphasise the devastating human impact of the loophole, the organisation has published a report detailing the tragic events that have happened partly as a result of the law.
Cycling UK’s new study, released this week, examines the ‘exceptional hardship’ loophole which drivers can use to avoid a driving ban despite totting up 12 or more penalty points.
The group say ‘the widespread acceptance’ of these pleas in the courts ‘encapsulates the pervasive view of dangerous driving as just one of those things’.
