Over time, our roads have become increasingly busy, and consequently more dangerous. As speeds increased it became necessary to impose speed limits to police Speeding as well as the associated offences that grew in popularity such as Failing To Stop and Fail To Report an accident, Drink Drive offences and of course driving with No Insurance.
It wasn’t many years before Undue Care & Attention & Dangerous Driving reared their ugly heads, all of which then lead to the introduction of Totting Up Points on your driving licence. More recently, in the 1990’s as speed cameras gained popularity, it became necessary for drivers who hadn’t been stopped at the roadside to identify themselves, which in turn lead to the introduction of the Section 172 offence of Failing To Name The Driver.
Followed shortly by changes for drivers in the first two years of driving, called New Driver Rules.
Not long after the turn of the millenium, with the massive uptake in the usage of cell phones, laws covering their use while driving were introduced and are still being refined to this day due to large numbers of motorists caught for Mobile Phone Offences.
The most recent road traffic offence legislation covers Drug Driving due to the rapid increase in drivers who persist in driving under the influence of illegal drugs as well as prescription medication.
