£2500 fine for flashers
Under the new Crown Prosecution Service policy, the following penalties will be available:
- Using mobile which causes an accident - 2 years in prison.
- Splashing pedestrians - £2500 fine.
- Failing to dip headlights - £2500 fine.
I do wonder sometimes just what goes through someone's head when they announce decisions such as these. Don't they know it would be simpler to just send everyone to prison the moment they pass their test? I would like to see proposals to impound the cars of people who look over their shoulder at the wrong moment, or accidentally pull out at a roundabout too slowly.
After all, in a culture where judges are being encouraged NOT to send people to prison for breaking into houses, beating people up, exploiting children and stealing cars, we've got to fill up the cells somehow.
