Traffic cop ignores the law - bring back Dixon Of Dock Green!
Following yesterday’s expose of a couple of members of the DVLA clamping team flouting the law and parking on some double yellows wihile they scoffed their chips, here’s another example from an avid Bitterwallet reader of authority gone crazy on the nectar of power.
Our contributor, Steve Blag, tells us
[The DVLA story] reminded me of this little tosser, who I was following on my not un-macho Vespa one morning when, after committing no fewer than 10 endorsable offenses (overtaking on a crossing, overtaking the wrong side of a traffic island, speeding etc etc), stopped as illustrated in the photo.
"No!" I can hear the PCC screeching - "it was an emergency"!
"Fuck off!", I say! There are no emergency lights, the brake light is on, his foot is down, and he's stopped in a fucking cycle-only area after behaving like a prized toolbox for some time. Pogo on that, you twats. etc etc etc.
Eeeeeeeeh, it makes my blood boil. I never stop in those.....
Obviously, as photographing a police officer is some kind of offence now, we’re probably all going to jail for showing you this picture, even though someone appears to have dumped a blue sack of rubbish by a bin further up the road. Surely that’s a more heinous crime?
If you spot an authority figure acting like a bit of a hypocritical tit end, you be sure to get some evidence and forward it to us here at [email protected] - the more we get, the less likely we are to run pictures of pricing mistakes in supermarkets.
