Thats the RUB. This is all Policing by computer. They need to bring in stop checks. The only time I've seen that round here is when the DOT do it during the rush hour !

Still doesn't stop foreign cars. Maybe thats the way to go. Buy a foreign car. Can't be hard to drive a left hooker.

I remember when my father brought a Range Rover back from Saudi - he drove around for a year on Arabic plates - could park anywhere - imagine the traffic warden trying to write a ticket!!! These days of course arab plates aren't too clever after our glorius leader's intervention in world politics............

An ex girlfriend brought her car back from spain on spanish plates - drove around for years without even a speeding ticket!!!

As usual it's the decent people who suffer the most - the crooks know how to beat the system..............

Yeah, back in 1998 a house-mate of mine went to Germany for a year as a student and brought back a Golf on German plates. We lived in Tower Hamlets East London at the time, a real hard-left council with a true hatred of motorists, and it was great - we drove it around and parked anywhere and could literally throw all the parking tickets away.

It got towed once, but because of council incompetence (they'd painted double lines over a legit parking space), we got the car back for free.

Of course, what you really want is diplomatic plates. Another mate of mine, who lives in Madrid, has just bought a new 325 Coupe tax free through his Dad at the Spanish Embassy in London and has driven it back to Madrid with diplomatic plates on it. no parking tickets in the whole of Europe!
