After already having one idiot pull across me at a roundabout last night I had another do the same and this one is on his mobile.

I politely point out if he put the phone down he might well have seen me (Had a Castelli fluro yello top on)

I get a real mouthful from the driver telling me I'm a mug and calling in to question my parentage etc etc . Then a police van pull ups next to us.

Said driver still has the phone in his hand.

Who's the mug now? £60 and 3 points isn't it?

    I would have loved to see his face when he realised!

    I bet you couldn't stop laughing.

    This needs a thread on its own for witty comments to shout as you burn off laughing.

    "who's the mug, now £60 and 3 points isnt it?" might be tough to beat though.

    For a fixed penalty yes, if there are sufficient aggravating circumstances the Police may take it to court where the points would be the same but the fine and costs at least 4 times that for a working person.

    Nice one Gazzaputt!

    I hope you pointed and laughed at the moron.

    All this fannying around with points and fines ... Personally, I think the minimum punishment for any motoring offence should be having their car crushed to the size of a satsuma. With no appeals process.

  • Sadly my search for related puns has been fruitless.

    Hope the motorist got no clemen(time)cy, and he was grapeful to get away with just a £60 fine. doh!

    You could have just blown a raspberry at him as you peeled off, maybe even adding a pip on your horn. We will have to remember the date though as they don't normally get caught and we see them satsuming passed.

    ... Ahem. Sorry.

  • Well done everyone some Outspan ing puns here. Some of these Little Gems show we have only touched the tip of the Iceberg when it comes to salad references.

    Tell me was it a WPC that pulled the driver over? I imagine the Relish on the OPs face as he Ceasar Dressing the Cress fallen driver down.
