Fianna Fáil is proposing that motorists could have penalty points wiped from their licence if they undertake a special refresher course.
The opposition party is expected to launch the plan as part of its election manifesto.
Drivers who notch up more than six penalty points would be able to do a day-long course which the motorist would pay for themselves.
If they complete it successfully, they could have as many as three points expunged.
An interesting concept - carrot as well as stick - points to punish, and carrot to remove them through an AD course
like the idea!
