Bloody Coppers

So yesterday I was on my way to pick the kids up from school when I got pulled over out of the blue. Just minding my own business. Mr Policemen asked if I knew why I was pulled over I said no idea sir.

It's your back number plate I can hardly read it because of the dirt and dust on it.

I said oh sorry I didn't know. Would you like me to give it a wipe now for you.

No because the infringement has already taken place.

Long story short $160 and 3 demerit points. He then let me drive off with a dirty number plate. Not happy Jan.

You can apply online for a warning these days. I did and they let a small speeding fine go as a warning. You must have full points on your licence though to dispute a fine.

If it was that dirty maybe you should have cleaned it before you drove the car.
I hate getting pulled over too, but every ticket I've ever had I deserved and some of the weren't as severe as they should have been.
What would say if someone had hit your car or you kids and run, but you couldn't get their number because their number plate was too dirty to read?
I know the police can be a pain, but they would never raise any revenue if everyone did the right thing. Just stop and think for a minute about what a nightmare the roads would be if they weren't there and some people thought they could do whatever they like.

I got hassled a little while back because the towball obstructed the plate slightly on my AP5 Safari, plate was in the factory location and the tow bar fitted around '63/'64, got told to removed it (no fine though)

for parking in a school bus zone on a Sunday Morning to visit local school organised Sunday market which we have done for over 20 years , was not a local cop but a lone ranger from regional traffic centre , lawyers told me I would certainly win if I took it to court but would not get costs ( around $360) awarded against police so better off to pay fine ( no demerits involved )
such is life

but in Qld it is hard to read many of the brand new plates anyway due to the ridiculous colour co-ordination that is allowed nowadays , the red/pink/blue/purple on black background are particularly difficult unless your nose is right on it or is it just my old eyes !!
