NotesNews: "Driving in Britain is safer than at any time since 1950. But with 200,000 casualties a year on the nation's roads, the imposition of £100 fixed-penalty fines, announced by the Government yesterday, has been dismissed by some safety campaigners as a woefully inadequate response. Stephen Hammond, the Road Safety minister, warned that drivers who hogged the middle lanes of motorways, drove while using mobile phones or "tailgated" other motorists faced on-the-spot fines and three points on their licences. Those who do not wear seatbelts - a safety initiative credited with saving 50,000 lives since it was introduced in 1983 - also face bigger fines if they do not buckle up. ...
