  1. You sound like you've had previous experience at this, successfully?? and there's a bit missing out of the end of your message
  2. you are quite right, don't breach the peace in the presence of a police officer!! as it was: I was very polite with the officer and asked if I was obliged to get out of the car and asked if I was obliged to give details and sign his notice. I was never arrested. He refused to answer my polite questions and threatened damage to my personal property and incarcerate me if I did not comply. As it stands we are NOT obliged to get out of the car or sign / agree to their contract. In court the officer agreed that I was polite and asked questions but the magistrates insisted that I moved
  3. Thanks for your enlightenment, I probably won't pursue it any further. Just to clarify: 'Carriageways' refer to the separated directions of travel, NOT the number of lanes. The local highways agree that it IS a dual carriageway, it should therefore have restrictions if they are going to be enforced! The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 Section 8 - Restrictions need to come in the form of a pair of 'Terminal signs' at the start of the restriction and smaller repeater signs every 200 yards, otherwise it is unenforceable.
  4. this isn't just 'my opinion' - officials from the local authority have stated that it IS a dual carriageway! It is irrespective of the number of lanes... it is to do with the central reservation! - The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 Section 4 - “dual carriageway road” means a road which comprises a central reservation and “all-purpose dual carriageway road” means a dual carriageway road which is not a motorway;
  5. just for seeking understanding and clarification on liability - £800 & double points!! that's justice!!
  6. It was the magistrate's opinion that it wasn't a dual carriageway - it doesn't necessarily mean they are correct!
  7. even the local authority have agreed that it IS a Dual Carriageway!!
  8. The magistrate congratulated me on a well presented case!
  9. I see your point, You may just be at the crux of the argument - the RTA uses the word 'usually' which is totally ambiguous - Unless you see signs showing otherwise, a limit of 30 miles per hour (mph) or 48 kilometres per hour (km/h) usually applies to all traffic on all roads with street lighting - but also: (2) Where a sign shown in a diagram whose number is indicated in column (2) of an item in Schedule 17 is placed for the purpose of conveying to vehicular traffic a warning, information, prohibition, restriction or requirement which applies only at certain times, the sign nee
  10. The Magistrates actually congratulated me on a well presented case
  11. answering a question from another forum user - 'havinastella'
  12. what is a pseudo FOTL? I still haven't heard anything that makes any sense of the trauma and confusion that has been caused by over zealous officers keen to raise funds using a form of 'stealth tax'.
  13. It's not dependant on the number of lanes, bus lanes or street lights - The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 Section 4 - “dual carriageway road” means a road which comprises a central reservation and “all-purpose dual carriageway road” means a dual carriageway road which is not a motorway; for all those who've done their speed awareness course - they will be aware that the speed limit on a dual carriageway is 70mph!
  14. travelling south at 56mph, entering dual carriageway at Falcon St. Police were at Cowling st. at the end of the dual carriageway. Policy enforcement is one of the roles of the police officer, not acting under his/ her oath but rather acting as an enforcement officer for corporate policies (government, agencies, police and local authorities are all Corporations registered at companies house)
  15. I was under the impression that police are not allowed to threaten personal or criminal damage in order to get you to accept their demands. I thought that police and courts were there to administer justice according to 'the law' and not their personal opinion.
  16. it was the top section of the A627 - Ashton Rd, Oldham
  17. On the 13th October 2012 I was travelling (with my son) under common law along a Dual Carriageway, through a non residential area at a speed appropriate for the conditions. At no time on the dual carriageway were there any speed restriction signs. I came upon two policy enforcement officers hiding in the bushes with a speed camera. They pulled me over at the end of the dual carriageway to attempt to gain jurisdiction over me. I was adamant that no crime or traffic acts had been broken and the officers had no business pulling me over. With the policy enforcers getting increasin
