What does everyone think? Bit of a long story but I thought he maybe should have given me a caution/ warning.....
I pulled out this afternoon after a copper and he pulled in let me passed, then followed me for about 2mile before stopping me. When I stopped and asked what the problem was he pointed out that I had my spare on the car, I explained that I had a puncture yesterday and that I had ordered a tyre for my alloy. He examined the tyres and told me that the car was unfit to be on the road and illegal as the size of the spare was different to my alloy on the other side, therefore I was issued with fine and 3 points.
I apologised and explained that i wasn't aware that this was breaking the law, but this made no difference.
Then he carried on to say that I wasn't allowed to drive the car home, so I asked if he could give me a lift home or follow me home as I was only about 1 1/2 miles from my house but he said NO. So I asked him how he suggested I got home? To which he replied "well if you choose to drive the car home that is up to you, but if you get stopped between here and home you will get another 3 points...... but I don't think that would be very likely!" and after he carried on to say that if he saw the car around town again this evening or tomorrow with the wheels as they are I would get a summons? :-(
