A legal loophole in England means drivers could be let off the hook if they convince a magistrate or judge that they would face “exceptional hardship” in the face of a ban. The DVLA publishes its figures by postcode district – the digits that come before the space in a full postcode. However, some postcodes in England cross over council boundaries, so figures may include drivers who live over the border in a neighbouring area. Analysis by the JPIMedia Data unit has revealed there are 18 dangerous drivers with 12 or more points on Scarborough’s roads. The worst offender has clocked up a whopping 18 points to their name. Here is a ranking of the postcode districts in Scarborough that are home to the most dangerous drivers. Images are for illustrative purposes only.
