If you can’t remember 1984, then don’t fret it’s about to happen all over again. According to research from Telegraph Motoring it’s now ‘easier for motorists to fall foul of the law than at any point since the invention of the car’. They even say that you’re in danger of law-breaking even if you’re asleep.
The reason for the increase is due to a rise in new laws against drivers, such as a tougher diving test and stricter parking fines as well as better use of technology such as speed cameras, CCTV and the mobile phone (don’t phone and drive).
Last year 15 million Brits (that’s almost a quarter of the population) committed a motoring crime. The figure was 4.7 million in 1980. Or was that '1984'?
