I have an account now so they just charge my credit card every time one of my vehicles crosses

BUT you don't get your money back if a driver accidentally pays it again :evil: :evil: :evil:

First she cuts me up then she gives ME the digit

Then she tries to get back to where she was...in front of me not thinking a vicious bitter taxi driver might just have the edge

so i slowed down alongside 2 HGV's and she had to pull in behind them...

People who book you as back up plan "B" just in case their mate can't pick them up and then when they discover he can they cancel their booking faster than a Vegan convert cancels their Christmas Turkey.

Either the scratch is more noticeable than you're letting on, or SKDC has a very good, high-resolution CCTV system so they managed to pick it up from their office :wink:

no it's in their rules you know the document that's longer than war and peace. if I don't declare accident damage within 24 hours i get 3 to 6 penalty points :roll:

Anyway i have had a good go at it with t cut and sent some photos in and hopefully they will accept that the damage is only visible at close quarters and allow the vehicle to stay on the road

So you self-declared? :shock: I assumed the council had got to know it by some other means 8-[

Doesn't sound like the kind of thing anyone around here would declare, unless there's a safety implication :?

Ignore that 24 hours it's a load of bollox, you need to report it ASAP or you might get an anal copper who wants a bonus.

round our way if you don't report it then someone else will and you then have to explain why you didn't to the LO who may decide to declare you not fit and proper or slap you with penalty points

We have the strictest and most nit picking council going but they are very lax on actually going out on the streets to carry out enforcement
