The Insurance Corp. of B.C. has put high risk drivers on notice _ break their bad habits or pay the penalty.

ICBC spokesman Doug Henderson says a new policy takes effect Jan. 1 that will raise the premiums of B.C.'s worst drivers.

Henderson says that could increase insurance costs for those drivers by hundreds or thousands of dollars in additional premiums.

A driver with three speeding tickets in one year will pay a $350 annual premium in addition to other insurance costs.

Henderson says warning letters will be sent to all affected motorists.
