should be assault with a deadly weapon like America. Throw them away for a long time. Its pre-meditated evil

@matt_french, pretty easily, one, it was on private land (That I own), with no people or cars around, two, I had a pretty good reason to drive it...

Someone had torched a car (So I guess there was another car about) close to a fuel container, it was either risk a big explosion or shift the trailer, I shifted the trailer, cops & fire brigade turned up afterwards & the rest's history, the charge was dropped anyways, the police had no proof that I'd driven, they never even saw me sat in my car, just on it, plus it was on my own land & my car's tracker software shows it was never on a public road all day.

It's not like I decided to drive to my local 24hr off-licence for more drink & risk the lives of others.

Also, I can't believe you can even remember that post, or the fact that it was by me...

@nat9319

Why would i not remember you made that post? I read the thread, i've seen everything you've said.

They dropped the charges? Didn't you pay a £500 fine though?

Prison is the best option, banning just results in the same people driving without insurance.

Hang on, you can't be charged for drink driving on your own land, that makes no sense.

@matt_french, I just find it a bit weird how you can remember a randomer's posts weeks after they were posted, I can't remember my own posts 2 hours after the fact...

Yes the charges were dropped, the fine was for a completely unrelated thing which has nothing to do with this topic.

@revjonty, exactly, hence the charge getting dropped. The police didn't know it was my land at the time.

Nothing weird about it. I've got a very good memory, especially when certain things look particularly interesting. Or odd. I remember.

removing them from the road for life is a good start.

@matt_french, now I find it weird that you find me, or the stuff I write, interesting. Or odd... I'm not interesting, I'm odd, but my life is far from interesting, I'm just unlucky.
