Fined for not wearing seatbelt?

Postby aenedleah10 » Sat Jul 14, 2012 9:16 pm

You wouldn't also be drunk, would you?
First of all you admit your guilt, secondly you admit lying to the policeman, thirdly you say you were stopped on the hard shoulder, therefore you must have been on a dual carriageway or motorway so how could there have been oncoming traffic anywhere near you.
I would bet that there will be plenty of camera's along the route you had taken which will show you without your seat belt so man-up, take your punishment and stop trying to wriggle out of it.
For you to have any chance of getting away with it you would have to prove that the policeman had something personal against you and since I assume that neither of you know each other then that is not a possibility. Unless, of course, you want to lie about that also.
As regards him not asking for your licence, it is not an endorsable offence although he could and probably should have checked that your licence was legal and also check your insurance details as well as road tax, tyres etc.
So think yourself lucky that you got off so lightly.

D'oh !!

off course there is nothing you can do about it. You have just admitted on here that you were not wearing it when he first saw you.
