The penalty points driving licence system

Do you have driving license?
Do you think that the new system of sanctions is effective?
Should punishments be harder for this kind of offenders?
Is it neccessary to increase the number of traffic agents to increase the effectiveness of the system?
What do you think is the biggest danger on our roads?
What should be done when offenders don’t even have driver’s license or are foreigners whose points can´t be substracted?

    – Yes
    -I think that it’s too early to probe the efectiveness of the system.
    -I think that driving under alcohol effects should be rudely punished.
    -Yes, I think so.
    -I think that the biggest problem is that a lot of people conside himselves as Fernando Alonso. People is not enough afraid of th danger of the road.
    -If you cause a damage in the road and you don’t have your driver license I think that the State must avoid you from taking your driving license. I you are a foreigner I think that spanish law have to stablish a system of punishments for foreign drivers.

    1. Yes, I do.
    2. I think that it could be effective, but only the drivers can change really the situation.
    3. Yes, of course.
    4. It could be a solution, because most of drivers behave in a different way when they are.
    5. I think the biggest danger are the people who don’t have respect to driving and to speed.
    6. To establish a specific law to these cases, thanks to which they could be judged as the other people. But if they have no driver’s license I think they shouldn’t be able to take it never again.

    – I don´t know, but the true is that i notice when a go for the highway people go slower than before.
    – People only feel punished when they have to pay an amount of money. So… It is not enough harder. You put in risk your life, ok, but don´t put in risk another innocent lifes
    – yes, because people is more respectful with the pressence of an agent.
    – high speed and obviously people who drive drunk
    – a harder economic fine. ( even prison if the fault is very seriously)
