ban over....

hello all...

at midnight tonight, im allowed to drive again. after a 2 month ban from te biggest farce of a speeding fine which included a 6 month battle.


finally i can get behind the wheel of my loved one again.

its actually gone pretty quick. but im glad its finally here as the last two months my drinking habit has spiralled out of control. many cases of "oh why not, i cant drive anyway might aswell have a few" of course few becomes many.

anything i should be looking for? as it hasnt been moved for two months. its a 57 plate so should be fine im thinking.
got to evict many spiders.

Re: ban over....

the car should be fine m8 apart from the obvious taking it easy for the first 10 - 20 miles or so to let the engine recirculate the oil through the turbo etc.
the brake disks will probably have some rust / crap on them and the handbrake shoes will be stuck on unless you parked her up with it off. Expect a loud thud once you set off lol.

apart from that welcome back to the fast lane

Re: ban over....

well all was well. i took it out for a midnight run to get its juices flowing and it was as though it had been run that morning. brilliant.

although the brakes sounded like a wounded sea lion.

on the up, it sounds louder and angrier where i havent gotten used to it again

i think ive gotten fatter though cos i had to change my driving position.

see, ignore the bollo about walking everywhere and gettin rid of cars....its bad for your health you end up drinking more hehe

You'll loose the weight now you're back driving. Plenty of hard cornering and you'll have biceps like Arnie.

Re: ban over....

i ve only been back on the road since monday and already ive been pulled. apparently i showed up on their computer as having no insurance?
probably didnt. probably just being a nob. traffic coppers as usual. never have bother with normal cops only them mongs.
also watch out everyone. we aint even safe on 60 roads in the forest anymore.

a queue of about 3 cars was doing about 35 on a lovely wide open forest 60 road. ready to do a treble take i noticed a van with the windows out at the back. waiting on fast roads now too theyre taking the piss.
but then why the hell was the div's in front of me doing 35 in the 60 just cos they spotted old bill.

thats what causes an accident!!

Re: ban over....

oooh i thought you'd all like this. my mates old bill and he showed me a pic of a wiped out speed patrol van.


they'd parked up at the start of a hard shoulder round a blind bend to catch people out.

a lorry with a blow out headed toward the hard shoulder....blind corner...police van... destruction. brilliant.

Re: ban over....

Ha, ha, that's great.
My car is flagged up with the police as I had my number plates stolen a little while ago. Every time I get pulled I have to let them inspect the car all over just to make sure that the plate does actually belong on my car, takes about 20 minutes. I think they may even have my DNA now ? can be annoying sometimes but at least if my car gets nicked it ain't gonna go far.
Top tip, get a false arm with lots of blood and put it under a blanket on the back seat just enough so they can see what it is, unless it's the armed response then you'll be tasting the dirt.
