I'm not sure as I've not fallen for it! I've seen one of guys in a nearby Facebook car group done for disturbing the peace when he revved his engine in response to the officer - which I believe is a fine and potential ASBO, but I don't know how much.

Well I guess the guy on Facebook who was revving his engine in response to being talked to was just going about his business and behaving in a respectful way and felt the need to brag about how he reacted no doubt as he held the steering wheel he was giving the finger as well

God I must be getting old letting things like this wind me up

Kind of agree with this but......

I overtook a unmarked police motorbike on an open road, no other traffic. He was doing about 80 and me a little more......

He then pulled me over for speeding and would not entertain any discussion on the fact that he was speeding as well. Also the Summons was worded along the lines of 'if you fight this then the penalty will increase'.

Whilst I agree with the fancy dress and killing example, the Police should have to play by the rules.

You should take L plates off your vehicle when itís not being used by a learner.

Vehicles first used on 1 April 1985 or later
The front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows must let at least 70% of light through.

It was maybe the fast response police driver's fist day on the job so his colleague's stuck up a "L" plate for a laugh. (Do they a sense of humour ???)

You are correct there toopy, pennies for the coffers thats all its about. I am damn sure the roads would be alot safer if everyone was watching the road rather than watching their speedo etc.
