What made you UNHAPPY today!

I seem to recall that Norfolk police are particularly arsey and uncompromising.  And they wonder why the police have such a bad rep with the public. 

 

Am I likely to get 2 fines?  Any lawyers on the forum who may be able to help?

Have you met @Kimbers?  :rofl:

To be fair, he was only doing his job, being a jobsworth or not. And the advertising around "mis-spaced number plates" has increased a lot recently too.

You knew it was wrong. Take it up the bum and move on - though I do agree it should not be two offences surely.

Bad luck. Couldn’t help but notice the irony of the location.

My plates have the space missing, I keep the originals in the boot. They are Velcro’d on. :whistle:

Did he let you continue your journey with your illegal number plates? If so he wasn’t a total cock.

I did ask him that and I said I was staying overnight.  He said because I had the offence sheet I wouldn’t get another one.

Most Coppers haven’t got the time or inclination to pull someone over for this anymore. Yes he’s doing his job but I’d also say he’s a cock if that’s the most important bit of Policeing he can find to do.

Both plates not spaced correctly 2 fines yes. (I’ve obviously been lucky as exactly the same as you) Bit like driving around with 4 tyres with less than the 1.6mm of tread - 4 tyres/four fines. (In my opinion that means sod all - ones dangerous potentially life threatening and one isn’t)

Drove around for a decade with a smaller rear plate on a bike and never got pulled once.

Yes it’s not legal but neither is doing 31mph in a 30 zone - Anyone going to own up for that also?

99% of all Police I’ve met are top guys doing a damn hard job nowadays and they deserve a hell of a lot more respect than they actually get. 

If you were driving recklessly, speeding or on your phone, you deserve everything you get - If none of the above and you were pulled for solely having a letter 3cm to the left of where it should be and you are fined then I’d also call him a cock as well.

"times they are a changing" was a line once sung @mayevora.

We are, as motoring enthusiasts, literally a dying breed and seen as an easy target.  I predict more and more we will see this happening as the "state" exerts more and more control over our lives and choices.  The clamp down has definitely begun, the internet is awash with "adverts" on this topic from DVLA and it is all to ensure that the Number Plate Recognition and tracking systems don;t miss a beat.

Next, new cars will have satellite links uploading all your little indiscretions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and tickets will be automatically issued.

Then the final straw, driverless cars and everyone is forced to conform.

The times, as they said, are a changing.

When I got pulled a few years ago for having an illegally small front plate on an Elise, the copper said he wasn’t going to let me drive it until it was rectified. Fortunately I had a full size plate in the boot so swapped them over. He waited while I did this and then let me leave without issuing the ticket.

Presumably, those of us with the EU logo on our plates are now illegal, too.

Depends upon the political leanings of the copper. If they are labour or lib dem you'll be there for 3 days whilst they try and make their mind up :hrhr:

I have a small one.

 

 

The letters are the standard font, size and spacing. No issues so far but fingers crossed.  335mm x 111mm the smallest plate for legal size letters and spacing I believe for 5 characters.

Could have had a 1 instead of the 8 to make it smaller. It's a personalised plate - It must mean something?

Yup, given my name is Andy it must be a really cryptic meaning... ;)
