Driving points would be a 'much more powerful' deterrent for drivers dropping litter

This is because drivers can only be charged for littering if they are caught by traffic wardens or police officers meaning thousands of offences could go undetected.

The council claims the new scheme will be run with a zero-tolerance policy which could see thousands of penalties being issued to drivers.

Mr Freeman warned it had been “almost impossible” to catch road users dropping rubbish in areas such as slip roads.

He has “applauded” the use of cameras but has still called for further measures to ensure the punishment is “effective”.
