just back from town & back from being pulled by the cops for the first time in my umm, nearly 6 years of driving.
The main road was shut off, so took a detour & was behind a car which turned through town.
Now, on any given week you'll see at least one car driving through town no bother. Has been going on for years, so i thought nothing of it.
See this car up close in my rear-view thinking what a donkey for being so close, but then i notice "POLICE" on the bonnet. His lights soon start flashing, so thinking he's ready to bomb by, i pull over.
He pulls alongside
Thinking i must have a bulb out, i put the window down & he goes on in his condacending tone about how i drove through a no entry sign etc etc
I apologised and said i never saw it. More condacending tones, he asks where i'm going. Said just into town & was following the car in front. He asks who it is, i say dunno i just saw him head through town as a detour & followed him.
Cop asks if i always drive around failing to look at signs.
Ummm, yeah as if YOU notice EVERY friggin sign on your journey!!!! Honestly never saw a sign, so concede its my own fault and just apologise.
Get a don't do it again sort of finish to the convo & he bombs off after the car that was in front of me, or in that direction at least.
I'll have to have a look when in town tomorrow where on earth these signs are supposedly at.
Wonder if its in part that he saw a young lad driving a sporty looking motor as i'm only assuming he sped off after the car in front.
At least i didn't get fined or owt lol
