Croydon drivers have the most points

Tuesday, March 8, 2016


Croydon and Selhurst have the highest number of London drivers with 12 or more points on their licence according to government figures. 

Figures revealed that the CR0 postcode is home to 28 drivers who have hit the ban threshold number of 12 for offences ranging from mobile phone use to speeding on the motorway. 

Walthamstow was the second worst London borough with 22 people hitting 12 points and Poplar with 20 drivers. 

Outer boroughs tended to have the most people without a clean licence with nearly seven percent of Rainham’s drivers have at least three points on their licence, while Uxbridge and West Drayton in Hillingdon, along with four parts of Bexley, have more than 6 percent. 

The area around Crouch End, meanwhile, is home to the capital’s worst driver, who has managed to rack up a whopping 36 points on their licence for offences including driving without insurance and failing to admit who was behind the wheel.

The AA’s head of policy Paul Watters told the Evening Standard: “With Croydon, the problem is that it doesn’t mean to say that’s where people are doing their driving.

“It’s their home address, so it doesn’t mean all these bad drivers are actually driving in Croydon.

“Outer London boroughs like Croydon are more like Guilford and places like that. They’re more likely to drive and have more access to the motorway and national road network.”
