Not Even A Slap On The Wrist27 August 2009
Today David did something rather naughty – he made an illegal U-turn. The police were sitting in wait. They pulled him over.
A rather stern woman gave him a bit of a lecture, while all he was thinking about was what this was going to cost him. She handed him a slip of paper.
But it wasn’t a fine . . . it was a Police Union leaflet explaining that the police are currently not issuing fines because of industrial action. I thought he was joking but apparently not – I found a story about it here.
We’re having a Fine Free period on the roads at the moment so if you’ve ever had a burning desire to do an illegal U-turn this is the time to do it.
