In the last few months, the Department of Transport have released data on penalty point holders, which makes for interesting reading-there are some interesting conclusions from car leasing company flexed.co.uk on what this means for drivers in the UK:
- 71% of penalty point holders are male
- Only 0.03% have 12 or more points
- Younger drivers have the highest number of 12-point licenses between them-55% of 12 points+ drivers are between 20 and 39
- The north of England has the highest concentration of dangerous drivers, with Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield topping the list for largest % of points, and Bradford having the largest % of 12 points and over drivers.
Unfortunately for those living in the North, 3 northern towns (Bradford, Huddersfield and Halifax) are at the top of the list for the postcodes with the highest percentage of points holders, as well as Bradford having the most number of drivers that have 12 or more points on their license.
