Hey everyone this is my first post.
I was parked outside my home with the engine running whilst I was sorting out the google maps on my phone to go somewhere. Once I put the phone its cradle I looked up and noticed a neighbour filming me whilst shaking his head. The footage would clearly show me and my number plate if sent to the police. The footage was taken from inside my neighbours home. Im a new driver so is there anyway I would get 6 points for this? Pls help

Do you have a child that could be sat in the car whenever you're setting the maps before driving off ?

Let the neighbour build up a collection and, in the event of a prosecution, suggest that it's not the phone use that he tries to record

Unfortunately not that would have been good payback though. Either way i'd probably still end up being the one who suffers the worst consequences knowing the state of our system

You could film him filming you.
Of course out of the car. Using the car roof to steady your hand.
That could freak him out.

Wow OP you have a terrible neighbour!

He should be prosecuted for wasting police time not you!
I am generally scared now of crazy people with cameras, so yes do be careful OP, but from what you have described and the expert advice on many people here, you have nothing to be afraid of, just avoid your neighbour!


If i saw someone doing that to me, i would have gotten out of the car and challenged him. I think many prosecutions like these work because the person being charged is too scared to go to court; i think in many cases if it actually went to court the witness would be afraid to go and the prosecution would collapse last minute unless it was something really serious like hitting a pedestrian while driving or causing injury to someone in another car through reckless driving.

Can't see the police even taking action with yours.

Regarding idling, well if there is a heat wave and its too hot for windows open and I am waiting in my car, then for sure I will stay with the engine on and the ac on to stay cool; luckily in the UK that is a few times a year at best.

Try staying in a car with the engine off in Greece! No chance, in that case people would care less about the environment and just want to stay cool.

That seems unlikely, since so far there is nothing to suggest he has contacted the police except the OP's imagination.

Though far more likely here is it's freezing cold and you want the heating on.
