I leave you with a smile -
A pensioner drove his brand new Mercedes at 100 miles per hour and looked in his rear view mirror to see a Police car behind him. He floored it up to 140, then 150, then 155. Suddenlly he thought, "I'm too old for this nonsence". So he pulled in and waited for the police car to catch up with him.
The Officer walked up to him, looked at his watch and said. "Sir my shift ends in ten minutes. Today is Friday and I'm taking off for the weekend with my family. If you can give me a good reason that I've not heard before as to why you were speeding...I'll let you go".
The man looked very seriously at the Police Officer and said. "Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman, I thought you were bringing her back !!! The cop left saying, "Have a good day Sir".
1. With effect from 14 April 2014 classic vehicle tax exemption has been moved forward by a year to 1 January 1974. This will mean that vehicles manufactured in 1973 will then be exempt from road tax - only a small concession but a move in the right direction!
2. In the past owners who have declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) on their vehicles have had to renew it annually - this has now changed and SORN declarations are open ended; in other words they won't cease until such time that you choose to tax (or scrap) the vehicle.
3. With effect from April 2015 the permitted speed for LGV Vehicles (over 7.5 tonnes) on roads where the National Speed limit applies will be raised from 40mph to 50 mph.
