This Order changes not only the way you MAY be dealt with if stopped by one of our fine Traffic Officers, but also how you may be dealt with by a Vehicle Inspector. Once further details of new fine levels and points system is released, I shall update this for you all.


EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order brings into force sections 3, 4 – 9, 11 and 12 of the Road Safety Act 2006, together with Schedules 1, 2 and 4. It also commences section 59 (in part) together with part of Schedule 7.

Section 3 amends section 53 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 (“the Act”). It enables the Secretary of State to prescribe by order different levels of fixed penalty for fixed penalty offences depending on the circumstances, including, in particular the nature of the contravention or failure constituting the offence; how serious it is; the area, or sort of place, where it takes place; and whether the offender appears to have committed any offence or offences of a description specified in the order during a specified period. Section 3 also makes consequential amendments to the regulation-making powers conferred by section 84(2) of the Act.

Section 4 amends section 28 of the Act, which provides for the penalty points that are to be attributed to an offence when a person’s driving licence is to be endorsed. The section substitutes three new subsections, (3), (3A) and (3B), for subsection (3). The new subsections enable the Secretary of State to prescribe by order appropriate numbers of penalty points for offences, which may vary depending on the circumstances of the offence. Those circumstances include the nature of the offence, its severity, where it has taken place and whether the offender appears to have committed other, prescribed offences during a prescribed period.

Section 4 also amends section 28 to allow the Secretary of State to amend Part 2 of Schedule 2 of the RTOA to provide for the penalty points for a fixed penalty offence to be the appropriate number of penalty points. The current penalty point provisions remain in force for any offence for which no such order is made.

Section 5 and Schedule 1 amend Part 3 of the Act to enable vehicle examiners to issue fixed penalty notices for fixed penalty offences. Sections 6 and 7 amend the Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Act 1995 and the Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981 to provide for notification to the Traffic Commissioners in respect of certain fixed penalty notices.

Sections 8 and 9 and Schedule 2 provide for a new system of endorsement of driving licences. Section 8 inserts the definition of the driving record into the Act. Section 9, together with Schedule 2, provides for endorseable fixed penalties to be issued to drivers who do not hold a driving licence issued in Great Britain by enabling their driving record to be checked and subsequently endorsed with penalty points.

Section 11(1) and (2) inserts a new Part 3A (sections 90A to 90F) into the Act. Police and vehicle examiners will be able to require the payment of a deposit by a person they believe to have committed an offence in relation to a motor vehicle who does not provide a satisfactory address in the United Kingdom at which it is likely the person can be found. The effect of these provisions is to provide a means of enforcement against offenders who avoid payment of fixed penalties and prosecution by not having a satisfactory address in the United Kingdom.

Section 11(3) and section 12 permit vehicles that have been prohibited from driving to be immobilised in accordance with Regulations made under Schedule 4.

Section 59 and paragraphs 1 – 3 of Schedule 7 contain repeals and revocations.

This is possibly good News for motorist, if you do something serious, the policeman has a choice of dragging you back to station and spending the next half of his life filling in paperwork, or instead, he can negotiate with the driver as to which fixed penalty fine he will agree to, the more choice of fixed penalties there are, the more likely this happens.

Happened to a mate of mine a few years ago, got caught going up a bus only one way street, the wrong way. Policeman and mate agreed to fixed penalty parking ticket .. everybody happy, mate doesn't want to get another fine, totally reformed (always reverses up at 30mph now with the number 64 on his bonnet and boot!).
