Always been assumed that the slowest reaction have the Finns and Estonians. But it turned out that the British police broke all records “rapid response”. The British have become world champions in the “slowest rate of penalty for violation.”
Recently, the British pensioner has come a receipt for payment of a fine for violation of speed. The most interesting is that he never even had a car brand. Correspondents from the East Anglian Daily Times found that 71-year-old Derrick Thomas received a letter from the British cops where it was reported that he had to pay a fine for speeding at 32 km / h. Violation was recorded in autumn 1998. The letter also was shot with cameras, which could see the bright red German Mercedes-Benz C250. Derrek demanded from a month to pay a fine £ 1,000.
Since this term has long passed, the pensioner went to the letter to the police. There, he said that he always observed the rules of traffic, as well as could be behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz, because his whole life he leads only car BMW.
Cops were shocked at such a strange failure of their database. And promised to conduct its own investigation, which resulted in them had to figure out why this came to light only after receipt of ten years.
