THE HAGUE -- Dutch Transport Minister Camiel Eurlings announced additional measures in his campaign against road hogs.

From 1 October people who drive too fast, or too close to the car in front, can be forced to take a special three-day course. It will cost EUR 750, to be paid by the driver.

Filmed evidence may not be presented, so the offender must be caught while driving improperly. Offenders who fail to attend classes will have their licences temporarily revoked.
