Re: Pulled by PLOD today
this month, I renewed my tax disc. In a rare moment of efficiency, I got all my docs together and I noticed that on my insurance certificate, the reg number was wrong (it was R**; should be S**).
I had already taxed and MOT'd the car once with the wrong number plate prior to recognising the error. How can it be that with all these systems (log book, tax, insurance, MOT) don't all talk? Why didn't one of them flag up the plate discrepency?
I'm chilled about this (now got a new insurance certificate with the right number plate), but had the Police stopped me, their system would have shown my number plate up - and thus my car - as uninsured, and all the resulting palaver that goes with it, with me arguing with the Police that I know it's insured.
Automated systems and processes. Not good.
A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.
Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
