apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere before we start. did anyone catch the debate on radio 2 yesterday on Jeremy Vines show? they were discussing new cameras taking photo's from the facing view and not the rear to remove the "i can't remember who was driving" loophole which, let's be honest, must be driving the authorities mental. this progressed to a discussion on drivers who'd had other people take points on their behalf and there were a LOT of callers who had indeed done just that. so,i'm listening away inbetween work stuff and this guy phones up and admits he paid some girl to take points for him.he goes on to say he's a truck driver and already has 12 points (the magistrates let him keep his license with 12 points or he'd lose his job).his call and if he wants to give some random person the power to have him potentially imprisoned for perverting the course of justice then that's his risk, i couldn't sleep at night if it were me but hey ho.what really made me laugh was this guy chimes in with the most pathetic logic i've ever heard in my life. 1.it's easy to drift over the limit. 2.he HAD to get someone to take them for him as he has a family to feed and support. my problems with this are three-fold:- firstly, this man is a truck driver, a supposed professional.if he isn't able to keep his vehicle on or below the limit he shouldn't be on the road. secondly there is probably a 75% chance his vehicle is fitted with cruise control anyway, therefore in all probability he either set the thing intentionally high, or wasn't using it and was wellying the truck to get somewhere as quickly as possible....in a stuff the limit, i'm in a hurry scenario. and thirdly, this was the FIFTH time the numbskull has been caught. now am i the only one here that thinks if you know you will lose your job if you get banned, after you've been caught once or maybe twice you would take the utmost care to ensure you won't be caught again, at least until one or more convictions have been removed? IMO the only thing threatening this guys ability to provide for his family is his right foot. opinions?
