rewarding the most reckless [and even…]

I just got a spam email for joining an automobile association, promising a free training session for those having lost points on their driving licence (due to reckless driving). I thought this was a quite surprising incentive and an equally surprising focus on poor drivers. I thus checked on the site and it gets worse: (a) only those with at least half of their points gone can benefit from those free sessions and (b) they have to loose at least four points after joining the association. Hence a puzzling reward on the most reckless drivers from a driver association! (Maybe they could recruit this insane driver I saw on the Paris beltway a few years ago. )
