Fleets Warned After MP Jailed

Did you know there are major consequences of not telling the truth about penalty points you might receive?

Fleet News reports that company car and van drivers are warned that telling a ‘white lie’ to avoid points on their licence is one of the “most serious offences”.

However, despite the risks involved, a national law firm says more people are choosing to ask a family member or friend to take the points on their behalf.

The warning comes after Peterborough UK MP, Fiona Onasanya, was jailed after she lied to police over a speeding ticket.

A solicitor, Onasanya had denied being behind the wheel of her Nissan Micra when it was clocked being driven at 41mph in a 30mph zone, in July 2017.

Her brother Festus was jailed for 10 months for his involvement, after pleading guilty to the same charge.
