Proved a police woman wrong :D

On way home from work then some big angry lookin police woman appears from the roundabout and starts marching towards me, pointing at the front of my car so i'm sat there thinkin is there a cyclist attached to my grille or somethin? BAD ATTITUDE wasnt in it! It was because i had a foglamp on but its the cornering fogs that come on either when you turn the steering wheel or indicate haha took some explaining cos she couldnt get her head round it. She was gonna give me a ticket until I told her what they was think she was gonna strap me up to the lie detector really dont have anything else better to do! just made me laugh cos of how cocky she was sayin right sir i'm going to issue you with a fixed penalty ticket cos you have your fog lamps on for no reason what so ever! Ah right think you'll find there on cos i'm indicating! so jog on!

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

I think they're called "cornering lamps" not "Fogs".

I don't understand why loads of police still don't know about these.

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

I know, like I said it was funny cos of how right she thought she was. In the end she was stood at the front of the car with me indicating and turning the wheel opposite directions she still didnt get it. Haha and do you have a problem with me saying Jog on?

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

Yes, but it's nothing personal.
Ever since I saw some ugly fat chav woman say it in Salford during the riots, when a passer by asked her if she thought it was ok that these kids stood next to her were trying to kick the front of the off-licence in, and she said something along the lines that it was because of the cuts, and it was nowt to do wiv 'im, so jog on!
It's annoyed me ever since. As I said, nothing personal however!

Hahah! thats a good enough reason i shall stop using that phrase then haha! =]


She didnt understand the 'cornering lamps' but she didnt give me a ticket she was going to though until I said they come on automatically, You can turn them off. by going into the menu by your fog lamp button i think there pretty pointless anyways they just look as if one of your fog lamps have broke lol. just never got round to disabling them
