Mapping Britain's Bad Drivers
The UK's Road Justice and Cyclists' Defence Fund have teamed up to provide a Google Map showing where the country's car drivers have the highest levels of driver penalty points. Where is Road Traffic Enforcement Working? shades postcode areas based on the percentage of drivers who have received penalty points on their licences in the area.
Glasgow, Motherwell, Kilmarnock and Liverpool are the areas where car drivers have accumulated the most points. Of course this doesn't necessarily mean that these areas have the worst drivers in the UK. The high percentage of drivers with penalty points in these postcodes could instead be the result of the local police enforcing road traffic laws more rigorously than elsewhere in the country.
