So in November, the engine started going in my car. To avoid it dumping oil all over the highway I killed it and rolled across into a side road. Rainy day, didn't see the hatchback, it had its lights off and the car behind had both lots on. Blah..blah..blah. Got the car going, took it to ford and they started fixing it. At the start of March, I get a call from the local constablery asking if I could come down to the station and have a chat about it. Apparently the people I didn't see rang the police and reported me for dangerous driving. 4 months later they finally get around to having a chat with me. First thing he says 'You're not getting charged with anything we just want to talk'. I explain, then he proceeds to hand me a fine for failing to give way. Now..I should point out, after pulling out in front of a car (keeping in mind, there was still a good 40ft between ours after I'd gone through, the driver of the other car slammed on his brakes and slid to a hault. Don't know why, knee jerk reaction to a car being..quite some distance from your car at an intersection. I talked to him and he was annoyed but didn't seem to fussed. My issue is..whats to stop me just ringing the police and accusing anyone I don't like of failing to give way to me? Or doing a burnout in a parking lot. I got dealt a fine with no proof or witnesses. And told to fight it, I'd have to take it to court. So..can someone explain this to me?
