Best time to tell them is when you learn not to put spaces before question marks, exclamation marks, or full stops.

Tell them immediately, otherwise they may use it as a reason to invalidate your policy.

Phone them up now, and tell them that you're an unbelievably quick driver, and you see 3 points as merely formal recognition of your uber driving skills.

I've been caught speeding, once, when I was five.

In Spanish, you place an inverted question mark () and exclamation mark () before a question or exclamation as well as the more traditional but less helpful punctuation approach we follow. An excellent idea in my opinion

Our punctuation system makes sense because it's typically only the intonation of the final word, and often final syllable, which marks something out as a question versus a statement.

Although I guess the exclamation thing makes sense, as there you might expect things to be louder from the off.

Although there have been studies into how people's eyes move when they're reading, and people dart all over the page, picking up different bits of the sentences at different times, so you probably imperceptibly check the end of a sentence even as you're starting to read it.

Depending on the offence, it shouldn't make much (if any) difference to price anyway.

But it won't annoy me if I know you're doing it on purpose.

I agree, I see it more than not now and it's a case of
