Just been stopped and pulled for my rear numberplate,
yea the font is incorrect ect i know that but the copper was an absoulte arse he started saying that its a terrists trick as camras around london cannont pick up the car's reg up I LIVE IN THE NORTH EAST AND NEVER GO TO LONDON and then said that the DVLA who own the plate can remove my number plate with it been miss used i then said so dvla can remove my plate and unlicance my car as its not a private plate!, he procided to give me a £60 fine, and advised i should change both my plates he took a photo off the front and rear off the car, in which i replyed the front plate is 100% correct i bought it from motorfactors and there is nothing wrong with it, its just the rear one that is illigal,

Front plate 100& legal


Rear plate not so legal


my beef is that little jumped up hitler off a copper recons i need two new plates !

end of the day, you need to replace the rear plate. he could be refering to the front if it isnt stamped with the correct details but im sure this only applys to newer cars

iirc youve had that dodgy plate on for a while so you mustve known at some point youd be stopped. Its like driving around knowing youre not legal then complaining, end of the day youre in the wrong, if the copper decides to have a look around your car then why worry if youve nothing to hide

how can they revoke his reg number if its a regular number? think it only applies to prvate ones. although the rear is obviously the wrong one, its not exactly hard to read is it? i've seen some fonts before that are just illegible. i'd make an official complaint about him accusing you of being a terrorist tho :nod::lol: did you get his collar number?

nope the reg identify the car on the dvla database and they own it, if you commit road traffic offences with reg plates they have the right to remove the reg and issue you a Q plate.

i know as its happened to me with a previous car for the same thing.

first of all i knew i would get pulled about the plate but ive been pulled for a light out before and that too was a local traffic cop and never got a mention about the plate, soo i knew iwas in the wrong, just been lazy and not getting another plate made up

but this copper seams to fink i need two plates, there is nothing illegal about my front plate

im pritty sure dvla cannont revoke the plate ither as it isent a private plate,

i tryed the yes officer no officer let me suck you off approach at first ect that dident work relised that i was gerring hit with a £60 fine soo i did get a bit lippy with him basicaly said there terise nice car's and mainly hit on "boy racers!" sterio typein and that if that plate was on a 50k merc there wouldnt off botherd.

collar number 0306

£60 in the post on the way to cleveland police i hope there enjoy spending it on dounuts or what not

MY RANT IS NOW OVER

He prob only mentioned the front to justify whacking a £60 fine on, bit harsh for one plate so looked for something else to do you on. Some are complete a-holes, try the "oh hello officer, something wrong?" approach first, if there still *******s with you and try to get you on something stupid, give them a bit back. If they continue, ask them for there collar number, name and superior officer. I've had a few like this, got stopped once because my no plate light was "emmitting too much light"?!?! had a normal bulb in it, anyway he wrote that on a caution ticket not a fine when i threatened to report him for harrasment, as it was the 4th time he had stopped me. funnily enough haven't been stopped since.

i did the nice approce 1st is there anything wrong officer ect i even said to him you can follow me to halfords (about 2mins away) and ill get a palte made up his responce was NO ither court or £60 fine,

its like road tax lets put that up and up ect but the roads around here don't get fixed there is some pot hole's tramps can live in around this way,

trafic cops should catch people with out insurance - tax - mot - licanse ect and chuck the book at them as them are the ones who put our insurance up and cause accidents and deaths on our roads my car is well looked after 4 mint tyers taxed & moted and insured and ive got a clean liscance no points and 5 years no clames, im not a boy racer im 22 yea but i take pride in my car's

its like when i had the focus i was reversing out off my drive and got flashed out by a copper who then stung me for a £60 fine for not wearing my seat belt while driving my defence was i was reversing ect then he went on to say reversing onto a main road is illigal but soo is reversing off a main road onto my drive soo that is a catch 22 situation

i also many years ago had german pressed plated onto a corsa GSi i owned i got pulled and a £30 fine for them im guessing its gone up from £30 to £60

and its every time i see a squad car i may as well stop wave them down like a taxi and jump in the back used to get pulled all the time for driving at night ect
