Police stunned after pulling over one drivers who could possibly be labelled Britain’s worst.

Aged just 23, the driver has  96 POINTS on his licence.

Boxing clever

Officers stopped the Vauxhall Astra in Stoke-on-Trent on Boxing Day. It had been flagged up as being uninsured.

The officers discovered the 23-year-old driver was already disqualified and had an incredible  96 points to his name.

With this revelation, Staffordshire Police seized the vehicle. The driver was reported for driving without insurance and driving while disqualified.

Locked out and locked in

The culprit in the driving seat was given a further extension to his driving ban. This means he is now disqualified until 2027.

Police will now liaise with the Crown Prosecution Service about a possible prison sentence for the driver.

People can be disqualified from driving for six months for building up 12 or more penalty points within three years. For new drivers, the limit is six points for new drivers.

They face a 12-month ban if they pick up a second disqualification within three years and a two-year ban if they get a third disqualification.

However, drivers can avoid a ban if they can prove a ban will lead to excessive hardship, particularly if this affects other family members. But this judicial leeway has come under media focus in recent years as the number of divers still behind the wheel with excessive points tallies continues to rise.

Beggars belief

Sharing details of the incident on X, formerly Twitter , Staffordshire Police Roads Policing Unit said: “Unbelievably this chap had 96 points already on his licence.

“We will be asking the CPS to make representations for a custodial sentence due to the clear lack of care for the law.”

When asked by a web user how someone can have this many points, the force replied: “By just ignoring any punishment and continuing to drive, gets caught and keeps getting more and more points.”

Another social media user commented: “96!!!!!! How the hell can that happen and a custodial not? Should be banned form driving for life after a few years inside.” Another wrote: “It beggars belief how can he amass 96 points and still driving.”
