It is the Local Authorty that does this kind of thing. When the Metropolitan police fine you, speeding and jumping traffic lights, they put points on your licence as a deterrent. The don�t want you to break the law.
When the Local Authorities fine you, they make a profit, it wouldn�t be in there interest to put points on your licence, they are just after the money. I wouldn�t mind if the money from the fine goes to my own Local Authority �Croydon Council but it goes to Camden Councils. Camden council is quite literally subsidising its own residence council tax( Local Tax) with money from residence of other Local Authorities and foreign visitors.
