My comment: Then only a slap on the wrist if they don't improve. Not much of a disincentive to stop them flouting the law. Can you imagine if a speeding motorist was given three months to improve and then, only if they haven't improved, being told off! Why don't we have public sector watchdogs with real teeth?
