The thing I don't get about these traffic cop type programs is the offenders hardly ever seem to be punished. They either have the case thrown out or get a £60 fine for death by dangerous driving or 3 points on a license they don't even have why don't they show us cases that get punished more severely ? Should be a bit more of a deterrent IMO!
damned if we do damned if we dont. the law dictates what can be done with idiots and honest law biding citizens alike. the police can use discretion, but the courts have the ultimate and final say so. am i wasting my breath? for certain offences the choices are a ticket and 3 penalty points or a court summons. if it goes to court its out of police hands and up to the courts to dictate the punishment. police have limited powers at their disposal to deal with traffic offences. they can only operate within the law. and i didnt watch the programme.
pickyvic - wasting your breath on who? I didn't say I blamed the police for anything....in any case, you didn't watch the program so you can't know what offences occurred or what punishments could have been dealt out
