Watch out window tints are becoming irritating

I just done my Christmas shopping today... and was making my way home when a cop car pulled me over for a "Routine Breath Test"

I passed at 0 (Zero) mg's of Alcohol per million.... ie... i haven't touched a drop... not even a chocolate liqueur, not even a sniff of aftershave.

So... unsatisfied with me passing that test... they checked my tyre pressures.... i passed with flying colours... unsatisfied they checked my tyre tread depth.... i passed at 8mm of tread.... unsatisfied with that they checked my exhaust emissions and passed that too....

I told them i just had my car MOT'ed 3 days ago... and passed it and proved it to them...

Unsatisfied with that... they checked my oil , screen wash, radiator water, fuel level, power steering fluid, pollen filter, air filter, seat belts, door handles, wing mirrors, my rear view mirror, battery charge... even the F***ing bolts and screw fixtures for the durability of my body panels!

Now... i am starting to get いいed off here.... 30 mins at the side of the road watching laughing boy and his ass clown Nazi ****-wad いい sniffer do EVERY test possible... just to try and get something pinned on me for a "Get a Boy racer off the roads this Christmas" campaign...

And they were failing.... so... i asked the copper if he would

"Please do a rectal examination on me... just in case i was smuggling chocolate bars into the country... i mean you never know... i could be bringing F***ing marshmallow toasties into the realms of misuse and mistaken adventure!"

well... this copper then looked at his partner and said... we can't find anything wrong.... all except the fact i was getting a little annoyed with them... i mean... come on... my Brie is melting here! not to mention i can start to smell the butter curdling now!

So he told me that they were having problems finding anything wrong with my motor vehicle....

"Duh, no freakin いい!" i said... coz by now... i know he is just fishing for something and is becoming a harassing son of a *****...

So he finally checked the window tints on my car...

I was 2% out on the legal requirement for window refraction test.... which is so bloody small that a freakin Vampire wouldn't tell the difference... and i might add... is actually up to the discretion of the copper to say yes or no to....

He decided to say... no... 2% is 2% he said smiling and sarcastic...

45 mins after being pulled over... he comes up with 2 F***ng % defect in window tinting!

The MOT place even said its within the law.... the window tinting experts around this area.... the AA... also known as the Automobile Association... the leading vehicle company when it comes to road worthiness said it was ok... but No... this いい sucker piglet decided it was 2% out!

So... now... 1 hour after being pulled over... i get this bloody ticket... saying i MUST get the tint removed within 7 days or get a fine.... and or points on my licence.

So i said to him....

"7 days?..... Ain't it F***ing Christmas in your いい suckers Paradise? Where the F**K am i gonna get a window tinting removal specialist to sort it out within 7 days? Especially at Christmas! Huh?"

So he told me to use my brain and find one... so i did... after now spending most of my day travelling around... and get this.... because its Christmas i have to spend 100 pounds MORE to have it done... than if i waited until the first week in January!... now that really gets me wound up...

So... thank you.... you いい sucking ass wipes.... i now have to leave out the wrapping paper and Christmas cards off my shopping list this year... i also have to now not have any mince pies and get a chicken instead of a turkey for Christmas dinner.... never mind i was going to donate some money to charity this year and take my nephew to see the Christmas lights.... but Nooooo.... this ass clown has really made my Christmas...


Grumpy old man? huh? here is a Grumpy YOUNG man who is just so hacked off with the British Traffic Police that i sent them a present....

.... my dirty underpants!....

They can wipe that disgusting smile off their faces with those Hershy bar stains for all i care.... I started out nice and helpful... and this police harassment is beyond belief


I mean come on... be serious.... is a window tint really that dangerous?

Have to say that sounds a little ridiculous. Take it to his police station and ask them to check it first. If they say it's ok then explain what happened.

But keep your cool, these guys stick together when you try and corner them

I started out cool... but as soon as they started checking my wiper blade lengths i started to ask them what the hell is that got to do with anything?

Before i knew it... they were checking my door handles and all sorts... so... i just started getting sarcastic with them... and they didn't like it one bit...

I got their numbers and their police station address.... my fathers mate is a Vehicle Inspector with VOSA with the DVLA.... i told him about it and he is making a request to check all the police vehicles out for defective windscreen wipers and loose fitting sun blinds.... that will make them miffed.... LOL

anyway... yeah.... i will make a complaint.... it was some sort of campaign they were on to get me wound up.... but they don't seem to realize... my sister is a Copper... my Uncle is in DVLA... my fathers mate is in VOSA... and i have a cousin who works for the AA... and with all that combined knowledge... i could get this squashed in court

Anyways... i take your advice seriously... i will keep my cool and have a coffee and a sticky bun with their Chief Constable.... and smile as i see thier faces drop to their ankles when they get foot patrol for the distant future.

Hi i would agree with pat on this i beleive you can ask for this test to be done again if it was poor light when this test was done???or the machine was not accurate and maybe it needed calibrated, go to the police station and ask to talk to how ever it my be and be polite and try your luck and ask for it to be done again but i have to say if he has been lying about this 2% over and its not been its worth more than his job is worth,if it was a reputable company that put the tint on for you they really should of stuck to the legal required standard on front windscreen and front door windows but there is no law against the back screen or any windows further back than the drivers shoulder they can be as dark as you wish,i hope this helps good luck all the best Donald

PS Sorry great post it made my night lol rolf
