"Traffic Constable Andrew Forth, who led the investigation for North Yorkshire Police, said afterward: “If you want to attract our attention, repeatedly gesturing at police camera vans with your middle finger while you’re driving a distinctive car fitted with a laser jammer is an excellent way to do it."

I got a NIP in the post earlier this week, took me a while to work out what is was talking about but eventually realised they were saying I had ridden through a red light. In Essex.
I live in Lancashire about 240 miles from the location of the offence and given that I have Lancashire, Yorkshire Cumbria and Scotland at my disposal why the fook would I ride to Essex?

So it looks like some scrote has cloned my plate and is riding about causing offence on my behalf. I hope the are caught and charged with the pervert offence and banged up too.

I called Essex police and told the I only ride through red lights in the north of England and they seem to be taking me seriously. I'm glad in a way it was someone so far away than right on my door step which would be more difficult to prove.

Ditto (different places of course but similar offence), except I was in France at the time of the offence and could prove it.

one of the last times I was out on the wife's bike I came around a corner on a quiet country road a bit quick only to see the back of an operating camera van with it's window open. Pulled up sharply about 80 yards away, removed jacket and draped it over the no plate and rear light. Then executed a u turn while cheerily waving at the van. Didn't give them the finger though:lol:

With my current luck if I tried that the jacket would catch on the exhaust burst into flames and torch the bike. The only saving grace would be a copy of the video to recoup my losses via youtube advertising.:frown:

" perverting the course of justice "

Penalties for this always seem to be harsher than just about anything else

Whether you agree with the sentence or not, that is a top quote. :lol:

Yeah with limited resources they have to target serious crimes like murder and easily solved but profitable ones like speeding where we all carry an ID tag with us in the form of a reg plate. :frown::frown::frown:

Just got another 6 point NIP today, 92 in a 50 zone in Hertfordshire this time (although only 9 miles from the last one) so had to send all proof off again. This business of not stopping people for a crime is not right.

They'll be smiling on the other side of their face (whatever that means) in the unlikely event they get caught.

Over there you have to survive not being shot by the arresting officer first off in order to get to court and have your case heard.
