  • Coppers targetting drivers

    Don't know if anyone saw it but the Assoc of Chief Police Officers has vowed to target drivers that use loopholes to avoid prosecution.

    I felt a little aggrieved at this so I wrote them a little note.

    (Speed cameras and the like being another thing that p*sses me off!)

    I wrote congratulating them on their plan and then asked if they could look into the following loophole abusers:

    Les Owen allowed his driver to drive at 82mph in a 40 zone and 86 in a 50 zone and only received a written warning

    Jeremy lowe caught speeding and let off apparently he "needed a wash"

    David Burlingham used loopholes to avoid 2 prosecutions

    Mark Hilton drove at 160mph on the motorway and at over 100 on several A and B roads, initially acquitted and then convicted but not sentenced because he'd suffered 2.5 years of strife in the courts.

    I then pointed out that Les Owen is a Chief Supt, it's Det Insp Lowe, PC David Burlingham and PC Mark Hilton.

    I then asked about the 59 cases of marked police cars that were let off from speeding by Derbyshire police when only 14 were using Blues and Twos!
