1. Is it strictly the motorway? and with the road closed was I technically going the wrong way along it etc. I just got the feeling he had had a bad day and was giving out max. penalties to whoever he didnt like the look/tone of. He could have said don't do it again etc.
The Motorway begins at the On Ramp, as soon as you
turn off the roundabout (Down Ramp) .
2. I'm obviously not from the Bristol area, would it be worth my while pleading some sort of non-local defence. Say the police were directing us up the slipway to reduce the jam? Or is that too far fetched.
You could say you werent sure what was happeing infront of you
and thought a filter had been setup. As your were not car No 1
you could say you were no longer able after realising your mistake get out of the flow of traffic safely.
What's going to happen, if a ticket does show up.
Is a list of the offences.
And fine / points attatched to those.
Now even though plod was so smug to say "Expect a Ticket"
may not actually happen, just to get you worried for
a few weeks.
Just cross yu fingers mate,
wait and see and take it from there.
Unlucky fella, a warning to all the chancers out there.
