Unlikely.

Any silly antics? Doughnuts, wheel spinning etc?

It's a pity there isn't such a thing in English law ;-) although "book em dano" also sounds cool

Just a question, how on earth do you think someone watching on CCTV would know he wasn't insured to drive the car? After all I'm insured to drive it (with your permission) on my policy....

Thanks for your post Rookie.

Good question..a part of me is paranoid they'll report is as suspicious. A bit out there come to think it perhaps?

Very very out there........unless something happened (an 'accident' of some sort), no one would bother, they would have to ask you who was driving and then see if they were insured in any way....

It is most definitely probable that nothing would result from this purported event if it had been immediately forgotten (with any lessons learned, of course smile.gif

On the other hand one could write up the (self admitted) offence on a public notice board that the police are known to read and take note of. Then confirm it happened (just in case the original admission was a typo). A quick request to the ISP and the board administrators by a eagle eyed wannabee and hey presto, Joe Bloggs of 32 Acacia Avenue, you are today's lucky winner of a free visit from the BiB. I admit it is not likely but I refer the reader to my post #4. I accept the point implied by @mattd above that we only have a right against self incrimination in the UK but in the context of this thread I think the advice is clear.

That is, the only reason something will come of this is because the OP has admitted (and confirmed) the offence on a public notice board. rolleyes.gif

Thankfully the BiB aren't (usually) bored enough to follow up such trivia.

Yeah, it doesn't work like that. You admitted allowing an uninsured person to drive your car in a public place. I'm not going to help you cover it up.

As we didn't vote for independence I'll have to correct you. We do.

My original post specifically said English law. I'm sure we can forgive the poster for substituting UK

Not sure why you are asking to delete this as Google cache easily finds the original post anyway......once you write something on the internet, it stays written!

Hi All

On Saturday during the early hours around 2am I (stupidly) let my qualified but uninsured friend drive a little in a pretty empty supermarket car park (which is CCTV monitored) and on an quiet industrial estate. Thinking back now, what are the chances of this offence being reported to the police using CCTV?

Stupid paranoia getting to me..

Thank you
