A cautionary tale!
Reports are coming in about a Swan regular – say Mr F – who was recently nicked by the mounted police.
Apparently he was driving his state of the art hybrid car around the Templemeads/Cattle Market area of Bristol and came to stop at a set of traffic lights.
The engine dutifully went into energy save mode and switched off.
Mr F thought this was the opportunity to use his mobile phone
Alas, one of the supremely alert member of the constabulary spotted him and he was duly apprehended – marched up to Knowle police station, read the riot act and duly fined and points added to his license.
Watch out – they are about!!
