How can you get 62 points as endorsements on a driving licence?

Large numbers of points can be accumulated on a driving licence quite easily without a driver necessarily knowing, for instance by repeated speeding in an area where cameras are operating. Generally, speeding will cost a caught driver three points. Courts have a discretion not to disqualify a driver even if they have more than the usual maximum 12 points if the court considers it will cause someone "exceptional hardship", for instance if they depend on driving for their job and won't be able to feed their family without their job.
