Holy Galileo off-topic, Batman !! (Even though there's truth there).

When you look at where the EU is headed it's scary. They are trying to turn the 28 member states into one large unit controlled exclusively from Brussels.

Unfortunately, she was the victim of a myopic constable and contesting the charge can be much more expensive than accepting the penalty. Sad

Exact same thing happened to me, I spoke to a couple ...
