    Your number plates.

    Friend and I got stopped because hers were dirty and not readable.
    You can be fined for this but she had a nice chap who just have her a warning and she found something to clean it with.
    Me, well after I came up 'no trace' (because they like to check passengers) I embarrassed myself by saying quite loudly ' mines fit take your time with your details' :rolleyes::p I too had a nice chap and went a little scarlet. ;)

    Aren't they young!!!

    I think you are turning into an old Cougar - but yes I have seen more mature upholders of law and order coming out of junior school - a handsome young man fresh out of 5th form saved my life last autumn in A&E - I didn't know should I thank him for his trouble or hand him a bag of jelly tots! :D:D

    What I should put in the title is have a dirty plate and see what talent stops you.
    Seriously @Cortrasna one didn't look old enough to drive the car!

    Hahahaa. When we had the first Landy our plates became un readable and someone did warn us!!! Everyone thought it was a right old shed on wheels lol it was brand new - but we did have a horrible habit of either getting stuck in ditches plus our road was unmade and dreadful!

    One went past me yesterday while I was out having a little carriage drive. It was a fancy land rover. The number plate was total illegible with the mud.
    I failed an MOT test one year as the garage said my number plate was illegible. Not due to mud, it was because a stone had flown up and cracked it. There was an indent in the plate and it was bent in at the stone impact point. I questioned the garage as they had MOT'ed it for 5 years previous and never failed it. Cheek of it.

    I didn't realise it can be a £1000 fine. It's been so wet and muddy is easy to forget.

    I think there was a thread about the owner mirrors the horse, or was it the other way round.
    Maybe I need her supplement. :p
