Motorist gets 99 points after being caught speeding 11 times in less than a month

A motorist reportedly racked up a whopping 99 points on his driving licence after being caught speeding 11 times on the same bridge in less than a month.

Vasile Ciuca, of Highfield Road in Felixstowe, was banned from driving for six months after magistrates found him guilty in his absence, according to the BBC.

The 20-year-old repeatedly broke the speed limit on Orwell Bridge in Ipswich over a period of 25 days in October and November last year, and was given three points on his licence for each of the 11 times he was caught speeding. the broadcaster reported.

He was then issued a further six points for each occasion after he was found guilty of not telling police officers who was driving the car. Mr Ciuca also received a £660 fine and was ordered to pay £149 in costs, the BBC said.

New sentencing powers have recently come into force aimed at deterring speeding motorists. Drivers who travel at excessively dangerous speeds, including those who exceed 100 mph on motorways, could be fined up to 175 per cent of their weekly income. 

In addition to the new fines, they could also be banned from driving for 56 days and have six points added to their licence.
