What law had she broken?
Thursday 5 August 2010
Police pulled over Robert Whatley, 70, for not wearing a seat belt as he drove through country lanes in South Wales. The 8-mile chase started after officers tried to give Mr Whatley a fixed penalty notice but he drove off.
Fair enough he was breaking the law. However it doesn’t justify what happened next. Look at the speed in the bottom right of the clip. Nowhere does he break the national speed limit. (Unless overnight it has been reduced to 40 MPH). He certainly doesn’t appear to be trying to escape.
