Another Day Another Cash Cow - Ker Farking Ching!

I see that Nanny has found another easy way of raising money to fund her bloated bureaucracy. This time it involves a whole new set of on-the-spot fines for various newly created motoring offences.

Lane hoggers and tailgaters, I fully agree that both types of individual are a scourge on the roads, can now be can now be punished with on-the-spot police fines of £100 plus 3 points.

Whilst this is all very fine and dandy, if it reduces the number of genuine offences, the fact that the fines can be administered without the "hassle" of going to court means that there is an almighty temptation to issue these fines willy nilly.

The AA are of the view that around 33% of all drivers actually risk being fined; if this statistic is true it doesn't say much for the quality of driving in this country, and it offers Nanny a remarkably easy cash cow to target and slaughter at her leisure.

Among the offences police are expected to focus on, according to the BBC, are:

• Driving too close to the vehicle in front
• Failing to give way at a junction (not requiring evasive action by another driver)
• Overtaking and pushing into a queue of traffic
• Being in the wrong lane and pushing into a queue on a roundabout
• Lane discipline, such as needlessly hogging the middle or outside lanes
• Inappropriate speed
• Wheel-spins, handbrake turns and other careless manoeuvres

People can still challenge the fines in court, if they wish.

Let's see how this all works out then!

  1. Nanny is desparate for cash to feed her habbit of waste. In fact, it seems to me that tax and waste is her only policy and jolly good at it she is too!

    I have mooted on here before that when Nanny uses the criminal justice system as little more than an extension to HMRC, she brings the criminal justice system into disrepute.
    All I can see this short sighted, fast buck scheme will do, is make people even more resentful of the state than they are now.

    Just for the record, I am no longer a driver and so won't personally be affected by these measures but, we all need to voice our concerns about all unfair actions proposed and actioned by Nanny because otherwise, one day Nanny will come for you.

  2. I stopped driving in 1996, when I moved to Stockholm, and never bothered taking it back up when I returned to the UK in 2000; it's no longer fun and way too expensive.

    Plus, I like to go out for a drink; therefore the car was never used socially anyway:)

  3. Everyone fined should challenge thereby clogging up the courts.

  4. We are policed by consent. Simply withdraw that consent by writing to whoever the Justice Minister is.

  5. "• Overtaking and pushing into a queue of traffic
    • Being in the wrong lane and pushing into a queue on a roundabout"

    Aha. They're going to criminalise all BMW drivers.

    About time too.
