At last some good news. The number of rogue drivers on Britain's roads has dropped significantly, thanks to the results of a joint police and Government operation.
Compared with a similar operation in 2006, fewer motorists were found to be driving without a valid licence, insurance or MOT.
Operation V79, carried out by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and its Scottish counterpart ACPOS in partnership with the Department for Transport, showed that:
* The level of unlicensed drivers stopped fell by half over two years - to 0.8% from 1.6% in 2006
* The level of uninsured drivers stopped fell to 1.2% from 1.9% in 2006
* The level of vehicles stopped which required but were without a current MOT fell to 1.5% from 4.2% in 2006
* The level of drivers stopped without valid vehicle tax fell to 1% from 2% in 2006
* The level of drivers committing a serious offence, such as no insurance, or driving whilst disqualified, fell to 3.4% from 7.5% in 2006 while the number committing any of the offences looked for - which included failing to notify change of vehicle ownership, illegal vehicle number plates - fell to 11.1% from 21% in 2006.
Finally, finally the message seems to be seeping into the brains of these imbeciles who flout our laws causing havoc. There is a God after all.
