oh, cry me a river.
I take it this isn't a problem in Canada ?
i'd be more inclined to sympathize if there were an abundance of foreign drivers causing accidents and not getting caught. you think u.k. drivers don't get off in other countries for the same reasons you listed?
I don't doubt that they probably do, however, two wrongs don't make a right do they ?
From the article:
"There are 140,000 foreign registered vehicles on Britain’s roads at any one time and three million enter the country each year.
The largest group are Polish registered vehicles, which account for 36%, followed by French vehicles (10%) and German vehicles (9%).
Figures show that of the 9,783 tickets issued to vehicles with foreign number plates in Sussex between June 2004 and June 2006, only 1,164 fines were paid. "
