THE PREDICTIVE VALUE OF DRIVER DEMERIT POINTS IN ONTARIO

In Ontario, demerit points predict future collisions much more strongly than do basic identifying variables, or previous collision. They are the best available means of identifying the high-risk driver. Without exposure data, we are unable to tell how much of the increased risk of high-point drivers is due to intrinsically "poor" driving, and how much is due to increased exposure. /HSRI/
