SIR - Graham Hoyle (T&A, November 15) believes that to run someone over with a car is not a motoring offence - provided it is done deliberately, therefore a driving ban should not be imposed.

It is true that to smash someone's legs with a cricket bat is a similar act. I would argue that people who do such things should also be banned from driving, on grounds of public safety.

There are already enough aggressive nutters on the roads.
