Smart motorway offenders could be offered retraining

Home / News | posted on 10 01 2017

Drivers caught offending on Smart motorways in England could be offered re-education courses by police, as an alternative to being prosecuted for offences.

The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) said it wanted to create more awareness of the road rules and improve compliance with them. Suzette Davenport from the NPCC said "We don't have national driver offender retraining courses for the motorways. So if you get caught on the motorway you are going to get a ticket".
