Thread Name: BS: UK Police Should We Expect More
Subject: RE: BS: UK Police Should We Expect More
Georgiansilver, while I agree that the police are over-stretched to say the least, it was their responce which prompted us to take it further. While we were at the police station it was they who were talking about these lads being charged with driving without due care and attention/dangerous driving etc etc., and us being prepared to go to court is necessary. It was the police who said that they could force the driver of the one car to give them the name of the other driver (if you follow what I mean).
If they said in the beginning that, whilst they felt sorry for us, there was infact not alot they could do, then we would have accepted that.
I wonder what the response would have been if, after they had passed us, they had met my husbands tractor coming the other way! They wouldn't have stood a chance.
