    For crying out loud has Plod nothing better to do? If you were in a Chaved-up Astra or rusty old Cavalier then yes it would be highly likely that you have no tax, MOT, insurance etc.

    If the number place was unreadable then it's fair enough to be stopped.

    No pic but I did have to get a wet cloth on my headlights as they were so dirty that I could no longer see the road on the unlit country roads :sadlike:

    My car hasn't been washed for a couple of months but the number plate never really gets that dirty. Possibly as it's a metal pressed one?!

    Mine hasn't been washed in 4 weeks - I usually wash every week, its usually spotless.
    Just cant see the point at the minute as it gets dirty as soon as I drive it.

    The dodo juice seems to be keeping a fairly good coat on the paint though.

    The rain over the past few days has actually cleaned the car for me, the salt/grit on the roads the other week literally blackened the car. Cant stand knowing there is salt all over the car, makes me cringe.

    traffic police are not normal people.
    they seem to live in a paralell worrld
    and act as if they never put a foot wrong.

    I have nothing wrong with traffic police. It's their job to keep the roads safe.

    Can we get my thread back on topic?

    A dirty number plate can prevent ANPR from reading you rplate. So if it got nicked it would make it harder to find. Then you would complain that the 'plod' were not doing there job. Plate is there for a reason! It needs to be readable. Say someone knocked over one of your family and took off but you couldnt read plate because of dirt on it? Point made methinks!

    Not a dirty car complaint but I got charged last year by the cops for my plate not having the right spacing !
    What really annoyed me was all day on the radio we was being told that it was going to be the busiest night (works party's etc) for the Emg services but this
    Nice traffic officer in his 5 serries booooooo , managed to squeeze me in in his busy schedule and issue a £60 fine 3 days before Xmas !
    And couldn't give me a answer why the car had passed 5 mots ! Not even a advisory from MoT station ????
    Just really annoyed me, I have a lot of time for police and if in the wrong fair deal but it just seamed petty ,
    Went out next day got a set of plates ,
    Problem solved .
