A Warrington man who has clocked up 36 penalty points is one of over 8,000 UK drivers still driving - despite exceeding the number usually needed for disqualification.
The driver has the highest number of points of those found to be going beyond the limit, according to a freedom of information request to the DVLA.
Twelve points on the licence within three years makes a driver liable to disqualification, amounting to a "four strikes and you are out" principle.
This reduces to six points for those who have held a licence for three years or under.
There are now 20,439,578 male and 16,804,524 female UK licence holders, but men fall foul of the law more often.
The research shows that:
- 2,256 males are still driving with more than 12 points on their licence
- the top 14 licence point holders with 25 points or over are all males
- just two of the top 34 licence point holders are women
- 351 females are still driving with more than 12 points their licence
The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) called for tighter practice in courts and at the DVLA to disqualify these motorists.
