I see the gubmint are planning on raising on the spot fines for minor offences as a way of raising more revenue.

Well this bloke would have been well and truly nailed ...

You can always refuse admittedly they'll probably nick you but at least you'll get a day in court and if they've only the copper's word for it the CPS will probably bin it. No problem with the police as a rule but not a fan of these cost cutting measures that make them judge/jury as well.

This refers to the £15 surcharge to be added on to minor motoring offences and is being called a stealth tax. (Apparently to raise money for victim support).

Well, I'm quite happy about the introduction of a tax that I can choose not to pay by the simple expedient of not getting caught breaking the law. :wink:
