    drove into petrol station, seen it was shut then done a u turn, back onto the traffic lights to head into town, turned left and the traffics were sitting at the lights going the other way then i look in the mirror, lights go on, and they almost what looked to be a handbrake turn, weave in and out of the traffic to get me, but i just kept going at 30, i knew they were after me right away, so pulled in at the next junction, and the officer gets out and says, wheres your front number plate, ehm on the front of the car?, its a sticker plate on a white car, but it has a black border, and its reflective etc, so it can be seen, and he went onto say side mounted plates are illigal, so i said no there not, evo's come out the factory with them, and he said yes but they have an intercooler, and a said well alfa romeo then?, he quickly shut up, and I've got a uk square plate on the back, squeezed into my import plate recess, had previous hastle for import plates, so had to put a big on one, they then said its not kite marked....FFS? its clear to see its a uk plate, and that other choice to i have??! can't make the cunts happy unless you drive a shitty standard fiesta or something, he then checked over the whole car, couldn't find anything


    then he checked my front tyres, fair enough my car is pritty lowzone, and my tyre is about 1mm off the arch on full lock, and he said your tyre and arch are illigal and dangerous, but there was no sign of damage to the arch or tyre, and he showed the other officer that was with him, and trying to point out these "marks" on the tyre, and the other one couldn't see, he then called for backup and within 2mins 2 more cops turned up, and they issued me with a prohibition on the spot that i couldn't move my car from that spot, i said fair enough, i'll go home, get a jack and raise it up, he said fine, show us when ur finished, i then got in the back of the other car, and he filled out the form, which was a MOT prohibition, i could take my car home but needed a full MOT again, and it only had its MOT done about 3 months ago :Angry:, so 1 cops says one thing and the other does something else, he then said i will be reported and may recieve a fine and court action??? WTF?? there is fuck all wrong with my tyre, and I've had my car re MOT'd since this happened, and the MOT tester laughed when he seen the tyre, was nothing wrong with them, but it failed emissions :Frown: so i guess the cops got their wish getting another modified car off the road!


    but i checked the form afterwards and it pissed me off, he never put his badge number on the form, and his name was ment to be block capitals, and he put a squigly line that was unreadable, so i can't trace this guy to appeal etc?, next time i get stopped i will be asking for badge numbers right away!

    looks like you got a policeman on his time of the month, have to be a pretty dickish police men to go through that much hassle,


    dno how much you can do about them changing their mind, saying you will fix it here, then them wanting you to do another MOT instead.

    when i got pulled a week ago, i had a similar problem with tyres and arches. he said its rubbing i said no its not, check the tyre. so he checked and guess what so sign of rubbing


    i think there just trying to pick faults from thin air to pull you for or take your car away.


    i hate them tbh.

    You know what....


    If you hadnt been a cocky little twat when you were pulled over then you would of probably just got a producer and asked to use a proper plate


    But for being the big man, they done you for what they could. You deserved it.


    Oh and asking for a name and badge number won't do anything, because THEY havent done anything wrong

    if the form at the roadside was illegible they don't have a case against you mate,seek legal advice from a lawyer who specialises in rta,vehicle related legal matters as IIRC if there are any discrepencies in the forms/producers as far as the law is concerned they mean squat all

    Im sorry but thats just not true!! Some people can't help that they have bad writing. If a form is illegible, it isnt just thrown out, it doesnt work like that

    i think you'll find it is...


    if a form is illegible to more than one person it isnt a form, a form is a record that everyone can read, thats why it says " WRITE IN BLOCK CAPITALS"


    :Wink:

    seriously mate, get off your high horse


    there was no point the whole time they stopped me that i was getting agressive with them, cause i know fine well it just comes back to bite you in the arse, i just kept within my rights and i wasnt going to let them tell me somethings illigal when i know fine well its not. and i wasnt being "the big man" :Messed: one of the cops were sound and talking to me about VTEC's and imports and said hes always liked EK9's etc, i wasnt being cheeky to any of them. but i still ended up getting walked over by then, you can't win


    and in reguard to the badge number, yes, by law if you ask them to show a vosa certificate or badge number, they must show you it, and if they don't have the certificate on them you can deny them from giving your car a proper inspection. and I've herd in many cases the second you bring that up, they shit it and tell you they have a call, and its your lucky day cause they don't want the hastle

    +1 LOL


    And this whole illegibility of his writing thing, pretty sure the name isn't accountable as being a reason to throw a ticket out, however the lack of collar number is quite a biggie.


    But yeah cops are penises sometimes, you get some nice every once in a while, but that is RARE I find nowadays. My old man was on traffic so I used to have respect for the police. But in recent times the amount of unneccesary shit I receive just takes the piss and so I have nothing nice to say about them. The majority of traffics are muppets.
