Did my good deed for the day - RR Velar

Noticed a RR Velar appear parked on the road just up from ours yesterday afternoon. Was still there this morning and I noticed the door handles were all in the extended position which i assumed meant it was unlocked.

No sign of anyone going to/from it all day so ran the reg online (private reg) and it was showing with a Stolen Marker. Reg seemed to correspond to the right colour and model and showed as 11months old. Rang 101 and reported, they confirmed it as a stolen vehicle and recovery truck came and collected it within about 45mins!

Hopefully someone will get their cherished car and reg back!

Well done!

I spent the morning on the 28th of December in the heavy snow, helping nurses and carers get to and from the hospital, one asian lady was stuck at some traffic lights, I pulled in front of her to giver her a tow (she was the third from that particular stretch of road), the camera flashed me as it was red, it was red for over 10 seconds and I was doing 12mph ... I didn't even go past the edge of the junction.
I got a nice Notification of Intended Prosecution through the post on New Years Eve, I sent them an email with photos of me towing ambulances, undertakers etc...
They emailed today and said I need to go to court. I'm extremely displeased. instagram @v8_scumbag

As the case will be heard at a Magistrates court it will be at least two Magistrates . Don't make old people mad.
We don't like being old in the first place,
so it doesn't take much to Censored us off.

I don't know why but I'm an avid viewer of Police Interceptors - it makes my blood boil when I see all those scroats put innocent peoples lives at risk and get away scott free.

I just hope the magistrates use some common sense when your case comes to court. Good luck Greeni Defender 90XS SW

Today I had a letter from the Police Safer Roads Partnership, who deal with prosecutions....
I sent them photos of the day’s recoveries, photos of donation confirmations for the MS society and a letter from an NHS worker who couldn’t make it to work due to the snow and ice, who I taxi’d to and from the Hospital for a week.

Anywho, the letter from the Police went along the lines of
‘No further action...’. and ‘thank you for your help and support to other road users’.

A warm and fuzzy feeling. instagram @v8_scumbag
