very funny but true ......................

this will certainly make you either cringe- laugh or just scream

certain person driving an immaculate newish car was stopped. right outside Whitesands ......very frustrated officer could not find a thing wrong . so he just looked at ?? and said without a smile to his lips -------- " you have odd mud flaps" that was worth 50bob for the comedy !!!!!!

I have also heard of officers (not being able to find defects with the vehicle), saying things like: 'this car is for 5 people, but there are only two of you. There should be 5 people in this car' ........and proceeding to try to charge you - until the appropriate bribe is produced.

I hpe this site achieves what it is trying to achieve.

My best story (many years ago) is when I was stopped by police after dark. There was nothing wrong with my car (I just had new tyres!). He asked "where is your front number plate light?"

How did I get out of that one? "Oh dear" I cried "my front numberplate was there when I left home. How could it have been stolen?..." His reply "Calm down Mama, your numberplate is still there" - and I was waved on!!!
