Challenge of Notice 0322050007252420/03.03.2014
Offence Code RT88521
On 03.03.ac at approximately 20:15 I stopped in front of my address
18,Tower Street Boston,
just to find that a Police car was doing the same behind mine.
After making me aware that I have a problem with the rear lights, Officer Collar No 1395 addressed about my bicycle that was transported in the boot of the car,extending towards outside.
I found that he was beliving it is a unsecure situation and does not respond to preventive behaviour on the road because of that.
Although convinced about myself that English is not a language barrier,was left speechless with consternation.
I here kindly ask you to analyse and find out that the mentioned offence did not exist.
In support of my affirmation please consider the following:
1.The Legislators leave at the driver's option by wich means to secure the load when transported in automobile.
2.Just because any straps/ties or bungee cords were out of sight cannot lead to the conclusion that the load- bicycle,explicitly- was not secured:
-first, the pedals acted like hooks towards the rear panel of the boot preventing outside slide.
- centre of gravity was projecting inside the boot.
-rear wheel wedged into the sharp angle created by boot floor and the back panels of rear seats.
3. By all this, any movement outwards and upwards was hindered
and in case of emergency by breaking load always is intending to move towards the front and not towards the back.
In vain outlined I that it was a just half a mile drive with smooth road cover and traffic at less than 25 mi/h,very well known by me so I coulded not be taken by surprise.
Additionally,at 60 and driving since I was 18, with almost no road events involved with, I wrongly was evaluated as at risk of carelessness driving, wich is not reality conforming,regarding this background of mine.
I am expressing here my deepest gratitude for attention paid to my writing in the hope that I was of help in finding the correct decision.
