Traffic police set points system

PUBLISHED April 13, 2005

Traffic police in the Thames Valley are awarded points depending on who they pull over, the force has confirmed.

The road policing unit has given its 120 officers "aide-memoire-cards" with a chart apportioning different points for catching different offenders.
They get 10 points for stopping a rapist or robber, but can earn the same number of points by stopping two people not wearing their seatbelts.
Officers are set a monthly target of 200 points.
