Chaps, my missus has just returned home after babysitting for a friend. On the way there she was nicked by a solitary copper in an unmarked car for doing 48mph in a 40 limit. Now I have no problem with that, she got nicked, end of. What is pissing me off is that the humourless jobsworth actually gave her the Caution (you don't have to say anything etc) and she crapped herself thinking she was getting arrested. Can any Arrse coppers throw any light on whether this is normal procedure when issuing a fixed penalty for speeding? It seems very excessive to me. The other thing which is really pissing me off is that he showed her the hand held radar gun jobby that he used to nick her while he was following her. When the plod spend millions of sanctimonious pounds telling us peasants how it is impossible to both drive safely and use a phone/eat a toffee/ adjust the radio etc how the hell can this bloke safely pick up the gun, tune it in, point at wife, record speed and whatever else is required to use it, while also driving his car at 48 mph. Presumably he was steering with his knees. I don't know if it's too late because she accepted the fixed penalty, but part of me wants to officially object to the way she was nicked. Or is this just how it is done these days?
