Don't dumb-down on driving offences

An MHK has welcomed the decision to halt plans to issue on-the-spot fines to bad drivers.

However, the idea was rejected after a Tynwald debate and the proposals will go back to the Infrastructure department for more consideration.

Ramsey MHK Leonard Singer doesn’t want offences trivialised.
