I was a passenger in the works van this morning, traveling through Liverpool when both i and the driver (boss) noticed a lot of road blocks with police. Being in a plain red 55plate transit we knew we would get stopped at one point, neither of us had a problem it was obvious.
We got to the job did what we had to do then left, we drive through a road block and the officer radio'd through (here we go lol) next thing we get flagged down and stopped.
"You weren't wearing your seat belts up there were giving you a both tickets."
WHAT THE ****!!!!!!! we knew we would get pulled and the van checked out but seat belts?! we both had our seat belts on doing absolutely nothing wrong and yet got fined. What a farce. Funny thing is they didn't even check the van out.
I hope they have photographic evidence to clear our names as we genuinely had our belts on (we knew they were there, we drove past 10mins earlier ffs).
I'm writing a letter and taking it to the courts, but its not the point they picked us out of the crowd and did us because they can. to think Ive supported the police on other AO threads!
And they wonder why there losing the support of the general public
