  1. You dont need to worry about alienating yourself from them. They are already so detached from reality you will not have a problem. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  2. If you come across this drivel on SM etc and fancy some fun ask the following, as I've never got an answer yet. 2 part question 1. You usually refer to the Magna Carta, in simple terms is this not a list of Do's and Dont's. What can be done and not done? That were agreed, written down and signed by the Sovereign King of the day. 2 Are not laws and statutes of today, sets of rules, do's and dont's, can and cant's, that are agreed, written down and signed by the Sovereign Queen (Royal Ascent) of the day? I've Never got a reply. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  3. Stuck off what exactly?? Dismissed yes, You have to be on something to get struck off it!! Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  4. Too right, always give it a run. Even if I can get a 3 line MG11 saying something like, "its my car but I was drunk and cant remember if I said he could take it or not" With dubious TWOC like this, you may not get the right result now but doesnt half help the insurance company.

  5. HM. The issue and question is around consent in using a vehicle from a known family member, and knowing the result that will come back from YOT, which will be a juvenile caution, NOT a ticket, as you cant issue tickets to juveniles. Plus it can't be a proper TWOC when C Consent is the issue. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  6. Sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture and ask the question, "He's 16, will a "technical TWOC" add anything. Will he get anything further from a YOT panel. Not very likely. Taken as proper TWOC, different story. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  7. Or alternatively deal with the youth for Drive Otherwise, No Insurance. Put the file together and send to YOT for a decision. After decision made, then decide if its worth the hassle of looking at a permit matter. Usually by this time you have another dozen crimes in your workload so you get rid of it.

  8. George, Your question at the end of the post is "can phil ride on a canal tow path or has Steve got him bang to rights" So my first answer of S34 is in play (defined by the fact he does not have permission to ride on the towpath - bylaw confirms this fact) The second part was a general comment on the use of S59 generally. S59 is questionable as whilst S3 or S34 is in play, given the low speed etc, it would be questionable about the second part "is causing, or is likely to cause, alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public" Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  9. No but it gives the evidence he doesnt have permission of the landowner so S34 offence is in play. A lot of people seem to issue S59 warnings at the drop of a hat when half the evidence isn't there. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  10. Try again. S34 is made out. He does NOT have permission. Can I use my motorbike on towpaths? No you can’t. Byelaw 31 of our General Canal Byelaws states that no person, unless authorised by the Trust, shall drive any vehicle over any towing path. 'Vehicle' is defined as anything on wheels. Therefore, unless we have given permission - as we have done generally in respect of push bikes, wheelchairs and prams - it is an offence under our Byelaws to ride motorbikes on the towpaths. It’s also an offence to park or store a motorbike on towpaths under byelaw 55 which states that no person shall leave or place upon any canal (which includes the towpath) any vehicle so as to cause an obstruction or hindrance or otherwise than in accordance with any reasonable direction of the Trust. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/about-us/our-campaigns/share-the-space-our-towpath-code/top-tips-for-sharing-the-space/towpath-faqs Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

  13. Given the circumstances in the original post, why would RPU investigate the matter when they have had no involvement in the incident at all. That's what you would get told in my force. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  14. I will not be using your answers for a serious purpose So why keep fishing with spurious scenarios ??? Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
