In May 1997, I was at home in 45 Penmaen Rd, Conwy when Anita said that The Mob were outside, putting a ticket on the Jeep.
I went outside and said ‘Excuse me officer, can I help you?’
The officer from The Mob replied ‘You’ve got no tax on this vehicle’,
I replied ‘You’ve come a mile and a half from the police station to tell me that?’, he then said that they had received intelligence, that there’s no tax on the vehicle.
I explained the reason for there being no tax on the car, ‘I’ve just bought the Jeep for my wife and we were waiting to do a transfer of registration plate over and we’ll tax it then’.
I thought that would be enough, end of matter.
But no they were still adamant on giving me a ticket, I said to the officer ‘nothing personal, but are you from this area?’ He said he was from Bangor.
I said to him that from Conwy United’s ground to the garage in the Morfa, it’s an un-adopted road, the ticket wouldn’t count anyway.
I was issued with the ticket, I made my enquiries and he made his.
This is the outcome.
Members of the public, what do you think?
I appreciate all the supportive comments being left, but no bad language please.
