    rolleyes Man fined for taking off seatbelt...police strike again!

    Well dunno if you have heard of this one but it seems the police have a quota they need to reach in fines in other ways than speeding cameras!

    MNot sure why he took his seatbelt off but with the engine switched off, in a queue of traffic makes you wonder how he was breaking the law?

    If he got hit from behind, he'd still hit his face on the steering wheel or even the windscreen if he wasn't wearing his belt - waiting for the bridge or not.

    Very interesting read.It seems the police generally have nothing better to do.When you watch some of these police programs on television,they always seem to be wrestling around and playing to the camera,then nicking people for stupid offences, then,at the end,nothing happens to the "offender" and they get a caution?,what's that all about?.

    Wow... That is a bit of a joke. Even if it is a technicality.

    I hear the U.K economy isn't doing so well. Maybe Police precincts are just trying to raise some cash?

    I didn't know that the principles of inertia or Newton's third law of physics worked like that. FELIXX.

    Seriously how can it be illegal to sit in a car with the engine off and handbrake applied when you are allowed to reverse without a seatbelt on?

    Ok he could hit his head but he was in a queue of traffic, but granted it could happen, you could hit a car whilst reversing and you do not have to wear a seatbelt.

    I just do not understand the logic.
