What it the Point system?
A penalty point or demerit point system is one in which a driver’s licensing authority, police force, or other organization issues cumulative demerits, or points to drivers on conviction for road traffic offenses. Points are applied after driving offenses are committed. If the total exceeds 12 points, the offender may be disqualified from driving for a time, or the driving license may be revoked. Fines and other penalties may be applied additionally.
