Motorist with 62 penalty points legally allowed to drive
A speeding driver who clocked up 62 points on his licence is still allowed to drive, the BBC has learned.
The West Yorkshire man was among 10,000 motorists legally driving on British roads last month, despite having excessive points.
Usually 12 points means a ban, but magistrates can choose not to enforce it in "exceptional cases".
Brian Cornick, who lost his stepdaughter in a motorbike accident, said there should be "no excuses".
