Sounds like for some petrol head like Coogan, making him drive around in a VSP for 6 months would be a far better punishment than a fine he can afford without even noticing. But make him drive a VSP, to to his to be broadcast TV series using a VSP would be a good (and very public) punishment.
The programme wouldn't be made until later then.
That would be his choice. If his program is so important then he should not have broken the law and jeopardised the program.
I'm a great fan of the VSP thing - not as the main punishment but where somebody uses some excuse to avoid a ban then their license is changes to only allow them to drive VSP class vehicles (maybe for double the time they would have been banned for). So all these celebrities could no longer use the "my charity work will suffer" type excuses as they could still do "their charity work" but it would have to be riving a VSP rather than a top of the range Porsche/Range Rover/etc.
