Could you please explain to me how we must do as a company for the demerit points not to go to my boss but to the driver of the vehicle? We have a company car, and sometime our driver, security guard, myself… are using the vehicle. Once the demerit point system is in place – When will it be in place? – how can we make sure that my boss is not going to have all the demerit points for other drivers on the company vehicle? Please help me.
