New penalties to tackle tailgating and middle lane hoggingCareless drivers who put other road users at risk face on-the-spot penalties under new measures announced by Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond.The changes will give the police powers to issue fixed penalty notices for careless driving, giving them greater flexibility in dealing with less serious careless driving offences - such as tailgating or middle lane hogging - and freeing them from resource-intensive court processes.The fixed penalty will also enable the police to offer educational training as an alternative to endorsement.
