It was let slip to me today that Gloucs. Police propose a new scheme for first time speeders. They offer a 3 day course for £60.00 (and no points) in lieu of prosecution. Dunno when and where this is coming into force but the source was reliable.

On the face of it this sounds like a great idea. However, for a lot of people three days off work means three days of not getting paid and since these are the kind of people who spend a lot of time on the road......well you know the rest.

If it were £50 and half to one day I would imagine it would be a great success.

Ah, but for people whose whole life would end in disaster in the face of a lost licence or enforced training course, they have another scheme;

If you don't go speeding, they don't prosecute you for it and you will lose no time off work, get no points on your licence, and have no fines to pay.

What's more, they are prepared to expand this part of the scheme to cover anybody who drives in their area.
