Dear oh dear, what a remarkable waste of people's time and energy!
I read recently that Kay Balsdon and her partner Chris Bates of Aldershot were visited by the police, and fined £80 for 'criminal damage'.
They had been painting their fence, and a few flecks of paint had spattered the neighbour's side of the fence.
The neighbour complained to the police, and the police duly threatened the couple with a court appearance etc if they didn't pay the on the spot fine.
After the rumpus in the media over this case, Hampshire Police have now decided to refund the fine.
What does this tell us about the "legality" of on the spot fines?
What does this tell us we should do when confronted with an on the spot fine?
I look forward to reading your answers to the above questions;)
As said though, a remarkable waste of time and energy.
