About 40 per cent of the con- victions, resulting in demerit points being assessed against the drivers, were for speeding between 10 and 20 mph over the limit, he said.

"If taxi licences are frozen at the present level, then one li- cence could be issued for every increase in population. On this basis we guarantee a re- duction of rates in two years."
