30-point drivers 'still on road'

Four drivers with 30 points on their driving licence are still legally on the road, research has shown

A study by ICM research showed there are more than 10,000 drivers in the UK who are still allowed to drive despite having 12 or more penalty points.

More than a fifth (2,167) of these drivers have 13 or more penalty points, it found.

These motorists may not have been banned from the roads, but theircar insurance premiums are sure to have been affected.

Lancashire, Cheshire, Swansea, Leicestershire, Croydon and London were found to have the most motorists with 12 or more points.

More than 3.8m motorists were found to hold penalty points, with 82% receiving them for a speeding offence.
