Have your say
REGARDING PIGSICK LETTER 21ST NOVEMBER 2012. sir/mdm its always been a criminal offence. to leave a vehicle with the engine running unatended.when i passed my driving test 46 years ago it was in my highway code.so the police person was with in his/her right to book you.and hopefull prosicute you for it.
@ The refusnik - haven't you heard? Mr Rhodes is against anti social behaviour - bet the Police are kicking themselves now for not thinking of that first!
A cold morning so I left the car running and the heater on whilst I quickly ran into the newsagents to get my paper. 45 seconds later as I leave the shop a police person is standing next to my car. Rather than choose to tell me the risk of theft of my car he informed me that I was committing a criminal offence and that if I repeated it I would be charged and fined!!
Murders unsolved, sexual assaults unsolved, drug dealers on the streets, thieves that are not pursued, vandalism, public order and social issues that aren't addressed, yet my car running for a minute whilst I'm buying my paper attracts PC attention?
What a FARCE!
