I was pulled over and asked to go to the officer’s car leaving my 85 year old mother alone in my car. The officer did not tell me what he wanted, he made phone calls. After 15 mins (and really a bad attitude and demeaning in a number of ways) he told me I had contravened double white lines some miles back and had been trying to stop me on a busy non dualled road.
When he told me where it was supposed to have happened I 100% know that the double white lines ended (before the brow of a blind hill) and that I DID NOT cross those white lines – I have been on that road for 25 years and it would be suicidal to do so.
I am in communication 2x with the professional standards committee and the fixed penalty decision maker – I am told that he is in the right and I am in the wrong, now pay the fine. BUT I know he is telling lies and covering his unprofessional and inaccurate methods and facts.
If you deny crossing the white lines you should reject the ticket and ask for a court hearing. You only have to cast a doubt on his evidence to win.
He has to prove his case beyond reasonable doubt for you to be convicted.
At court you will be at risk of higher fines and court costs but no more.
