That's quite true Cods.. I have been to the UK about 5 times in the last month and havnt seen a copper at all..Even in London they seem few and far between.. Are they becoming an extinct specis??.

Yes definitely. Was talking to an Italian bloke other day driving a Porsche 911 turbo registered in Nice. He was on his was to Dover from Swansea - said it usually takes him 3hrs at night. I started to warn him about cameras and then remembered his plates - no need to worry - he can cruise at 130mph!!!

I know loads of people who don't bother with numberplates or anything else when towing and they never seem to get caught. Drove back with a mate of mine from Exeter a few years ago - his trailer had no number plates and the lights were flashing red bike LEDs - passed by a traffic car who took no notice at all - mind you it was raining........

Aghh it'sa like the old days a mate of C.od's.

Also, what happened to the old Q plates, and what modifications did they designate or be used to signify?
there are going to pull you because you might of nicked the boat, they pull first ask questions later
