To try and cut a long story short on 02 Nov I was having a really bad day and needed to go into bank just to pop some money in however their were no parking spaces close by so I parked in the bus stop outside the bank.
Now I know i shouldn't have but as I say I was having a really bad day and I was short on time too. Anyway to my horror when I looked round there was a policeman standing over my car.
So I thought s*** and I had a sudden urge to do what I have seen people do on telly. Get in and drive away before he can issue me a ticket. Now normally i would never dream of doing this but to say I had the hump that day would be an understatement.
Infact when the copper asked me what i thought I was doing I actually told him I have seen people on the telly do it. He said thats a myth that if its not issued properly you don't have to pay. I told him I would take a chance on that. I even told him to shove his ticket where the sun don't shine. In fact I suprised myself with my behaviour that day. I still chuckle about it now.
However this morning the grin has been wiped of my face as I have received a letter asking for driver details etc of who was driving that day. Its a letter from the police on behalf of the Chief Constable.
I thought you had to receive the ticket within 14 days to make it a good ticket and I honestly thought I had got away with it. The offence was commited on 02 Nov and letter typed up on 02 Dec.
Does anyone have any knowledge on this or any idea where I can find out ?
