The government was considering resuming the Demerit Points System for driving licenses, Transport Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said yesterday.
The demerit system was considered as a strategy to prevent accidents caused by negligent drivers.
The system gives drivers a score of 0 to 24 in road accidents caused by negligence.
The driver's license will be suspended after the score drops to 0 at the end.
“The Demerit Point System will encourage drivers to be responsible and careful,” the Minister said.(DSB)
