In the following paragraph I omitted a "can be" from the second part of the second sentence:
I think a lawbreaker, who has committed a traffic offence, has to face punishment. For instance, they can be fined or their driving license
can besuspended temporarily. If they reoffend they can be given a custodial sentence
Is it OK to shorten the sentence like this? If it is correct and clear, what's the name of it in grammar books? Does it have any specific name in grammar?
It is similar to factor in mathematics!
