|Swapping keys to swap points|
I reckon the CPS is mulling over the prospect of a court hearing where judge and jury get to see two former married partners basically blaming the other. If it does come to court all concerned will have to have the patience of a saint. But it all boils down to which one is believable.
However, casting aside the prosecuting side of points abuse, it does seem that the habit of swapping points is prevalent in Britain. Last year Direct Line Insurance noted that 660,000 motorists admit to penalty points swapping. And that's only those who say so. What about the secretive lot that won't tell?
Driving a car should be a responsible activity. Yet people from all walks of life think that this sort of crime is perfectly acceptable. Most likely they are the ones calling for rioters and looters to be jailed instantly by the courts. I'm waiting to hear the rioters and looters call for points swappers to be likewise incarcerated!
