May. 16, 2014
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Legislators in the South American country of Guyana have approved a points-based traffic law that could bar people from driving for a year, depending on their offense.
Previously, only judges could punish people accused of driving offenses. Parliament approved the measure Thursday and the president is expected to sign it.
Police in the country of some 735,000 people say traffic accidents have been increasing.
