Undercover Police stop last night

Got pulled over next to the metro bank at Holborn last night....

My driver side headlight went yesterday afternoon and didn’t get time to change it... bottom fog lights were on with one working headlight.

Anyway these slime balls gave me a ticket, and let me go on my way driving with one headlight.

I explained it happened only today and that it made more sense for me to drive with one headlight and the fogs, as I can be seen by other road users and pedestrians.

These lowlifes are driving in a black Peugeot estate and are proper police in plain clothes designated for private hire vehicles. They are only concerned about generating money and do not care about common sense.

I am dead against people driving with the fogs on unnecessarily, but cmon.

Any way be careful guys, just wanted to give fellow cabbies a heads up, beware of these leeches.

I think you will find that fog lights are to be used when there is FOG and there is a good reason why you should not use them for any other reason.

Cabsunit - specialise in cab related matters, touting / vehicle condition etc they have pco badged vehicles that are used, easier to blend in that way - bulbs are an easy ticket for them - pretty sure if they want to be shitty they can report to tfl or request you get another mot

I can only see one low life in this story, knowingly driving in the dark without the correct lights is a danger to you and everyone around you. I didn’t get time to change it isn’t an excuse, why are you not carrying a spare and do it yourself, you drive for a living after all, deary me

A constructive response with absolute no substance, it’s difficult being wrong and admitting it I suppose?

My response was due to the fact that you referred me as a low lowlife.

There is multiple stabbings happening every week, so much crime in the capital and the police are coming after cabbies specifically, they are not there to serve the public. Only to generate revenue.

Your response to my initial post suggest you have a soft spot for the pigs. Hence my response

You called the police low life’s for a starter, rank and file have no say in what they are instructed to do.

Do you admit driving with fog lights on when not foggy is dangerous?

I have very simple solutions for blown bulbs - stop asap and change it - I carry all spares in the car and change them.

My eyes hurt because of countless "I didn't have time" drivers that use fog lights when it only takes 2 mins to stop and change a light bulb.
You now learned that Fogs and laziness plus being careless costs money, it's a fine I wished every driver using fog lights should get.

Well said . I admit my fault and am now paying the price for it, literally.

My post was just a warning to all reading to not make the same mistake I did.

That’s how you I want you to respond to my posts from now on Barclay.

I love it when people get stopped and nicked for driving when they are obviously in the wrong then cry that the police should be nicking real criminals, so if the police ignored every one who drives with faulty lights,tyres etc etc that’s all ok is it .

Not at all... faulty tyres can cause a seriously bad accident, and could potentially be fatal.

Two tiny fog lights on, to compensate for a blown bulb is no way near on the same level as having an unroadworthy vehicle.

Have you seen how strong some of the lights are on the new cars ???? Way way stronger then the fogs on the bottom of a Prius... so how does that make sense ? Some 4x4’s headlights are directly at eye level and can be blinding. Why don’t they get fined ?

Don’t give me crap about “oh the zombies with their lights on are making me dizzy and I wee my pants when I see them.”

It’s just a way of making money for the police. Nothing more.
