Insurers call for driving licence penalty points system

August 03, 2016

The law should be changed to enable the introduction of random roadside breathalyser tests, the Malta Insurance Association said today.

Addressing a news conference this morning, association director general Adrian Galea said the police were not currently able to carry out such tests at random.

He also called for systems that would encourage motorists to take driving more seriously.

These should include a penalty points system, which was currently in effect only for the first three years of driving.

Such a system would see motorists take driving more seriously as accumulating points could lead to the suspension of one's license, he said.
