I was contacted by Zaphod, a sometime commenter here, regarding a post he had put up on his own blog forum, and I thought my readers would appreciate it. (Zaphod is one of the authors of the Nothing2Declare blog, and a fine fellow he is too.)
And now for something completely different-Read on here. It's ideal heart-warming stuff for a cold January evening.
I was in court today, for speeding. Apparently, I drove past a speed trap van doing 35mph. Allegedly.
I had ignored the offer of a speed awareness ritual humiliation course. And the reminders. And the subsequent repeated offers to pay a fixed penalty. They couldn’t believe I would be so stupid as to contest it in court, when they had a signed confession that I was the driver. Or did they?
