Zaphod's Day In Court

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-
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?
Read on here.  It's ideal heart-warming stuff for a cold January evening.


  1. Brave man. Kudos!

  2. I wonder if he claimed costs & ( possibly) loss of income for his day in court?

  3. Excellent news! Have Tweeted it :)

  4. Nice when the good guys win. Thanks for the link.
