Scandalous to not ban drivers on 12 points.

It is absolutely scandalous and disgraceful that magistrates and judges are not disqualifying motorists who have at least 12 points on their driving licence (Sunderland Echo, October 29).

The ‘exceptional hardship’ as a result of losing a licence – does this mean they will have to get the bus instead of a car?

Whatever it is – tough.

Dangerous drivers should not be on our roads under any circumstances.

Judges and magistrates should grow a backbone and do the job properly.
