    try this for a shit day

    right on the way home from work and was pulled over by the police for not wearing my belt as i set off. i put it on at the t junction at the end of the road i set off from. was given a £30 found even though i was wearing it when they pulled me over 10 mins later. the police officer then drove off without her belt on how ****ing disgusting is that!!!

    i then get home and i recieve 1 fine for parking in halfords car park. using halfords then going to another shop. i rang to dispute but they say the car park was busy and needed to be for customers only but the picture they have taken must show about 30 to 40 spaces and thats only in 1 small corner. stupid jobsworth

    then the other letter is a bill from my insurance because i changed the car on the policy. it didnt make a difference to my premuim but it was an administration charge for changing the vehicle.

    so all in all £100 down. I LOVE ENGLAND !!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like a pretty bad day that. Lessons Learn:

    Clunk Clip Every Trip!!!

    The only time I dont wear mine is when i'm reverse parking, which is perfectly legal.

    I'm sure the law is that you can travel 50ft without your belt on. Its something to do with milkmen, posties etc.
    I don't think the police are legally obliged to wear a belt incase they need jump out sharpish.

    Also taxi drivers have no legal requirement to wear a seatbelt. And now for one of those laws that's old and stupid but still hasn't changed;

    A Hackney Carriage taxi driver is legalley entitled to urinate on the rear N/S (passenger) wheel.

    And they don't have to carry a childs seat by law, the "adult" holds the child under the now shared belt.

    and on another technicality, they legally have to carry a bail of hay in their cars. Comes from the times when it was horse drawn carriages, they used to have to have a bail of hay to feed the horse. Some cabs have a small hay bail on the parcel shelf.

    Also , while we're on horses, a horse rider can knock on any door and ask for water for their horse and they have to legally be given it.
