although i have been given a ticket for it before, i got another one today, during the day i drive with sidelights on and fogs, my dad always done it since i can remember and i guess i just got in the same habbit. i like to think it helps to make me more visible in shaded lanes in the countryside where i live whith the sun blinding you from the side.
pc kenny (*******) who gave my brother 3 points when he fell off his motorbike on oil and smashed his back light, thinks that they dazzle other road users i thought he was having a laugh being as it was 34degrees this afternoon, clear blue sky, but he was serious, apparantly my fog lights in day time can cause more glare than the sun, really dont know how but it cost me another 30 quid and another caution. bla bla bla, do they not have other more important things to be doing? at one point he was shouting at me and told me im a waste of space and i will never learn.
i thought this to be out of order and told him so, he threatned to send me straight to court for the offence, having my fogs on in the middle of the day, seriously??? i never have them on at night as they do dazzle people but in the day come on.
has anyone else ever had this problem?? its an offence i know and he showed me it in the highway code, but the way i was spoken too?? can they do this, am i being victimised for having a nice car and being a young driver, 5 times in 4 months by the same copper i been pulled!!!!! and he still dont know what car it is. worth making a complaint, he done me for speading last year too, 6mph over the limit and i was in a que of traffic.
