    How many points have you ever received on your licence?

    I have had 13: -
    1995 - 3 points - M61 - I did not see the camera. I used to speed all the time then(I rarely do now). 85mph in 70mph zone?
    1996 - 4 points - A57 middle of LIverpool. About midnight and road deserted. I drove the wrong way. 6 lane dual carriage way - 30mph zone - WTH? 47 mph. I got 4 points for arguing with the judge. And for being a Southerner.
    2002 - 3 points - Dulwich. Going through red light. As my marriage was breaking up. Very large junction on dual carriage way. I was in right hand lane and went through green light. Person in front did not indicate then turned right. I was stuck behind. Person in front waited ages after lights changed...
    2004 - 3 points. Overtaking on hashed lines on A303. Deserted road. Part of police crackdown. He was very officious - when I took form to police station they were amazed he had filled it all in - usually its left up too them.

    None - I am incredibly boring.

    I have a butler who drives me.
    If I'm driving, my dog takes the points on her licence.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
    Hands... out infractions
    Face... the music
    Space... between the ears

      None - I am completely law abiding whether I'm on foot, on a cycle or in a vehicle.

        What's a driving license?
        What happens in General, stays in General.
        You know what they say about assumptions!

          When you get on the bus tonight, ask the guy who sits at the fronr with that wheel in front of him.

          Don't be surprised if he says "f**k off you stink"....

            No idea. But it's not a driving licence.

              But points are only valid for 3 years and on record for 5. In the old days of a paper copy if you claimed you'd lost your paper licence after 3 you'd get it back without the points on it even though they were supposed to be on for 5.

              So you haven't had 13 points on your licence... Just saying like

                I was a bit of an eejit on a motorbike when I was a kid.

                Managed to get caught doing 70 in a 30 for my first offence and while my licence was away waiting for court I got pulled again which caused all sorts of complications. Got 6 from court as well as the 3 so 9 at one point. Very sweaty times those... not least my dad was an insurance broker and went ballistic.

                Don't think I've had 9 in total in the next 25 years. Must have gotten better at spotting them

                    I asked your accountant and she said "what do you want the answer to be?".

                    Mind you Diane Abbott said I had 569.
