M6 by the Lakes -- scene of the crime
They're watching us -- right here on PistonHeads.
Last December, a man took his girlfriend for a drive on the M6 in Cumbria, hit 88mph, got snapped by a scamera -- then boasted on a Web site about how he had got away without being caught. The driver, Stephen Quas, had apparently persuaded his girlfriend Isabelle Fortot to say that it was her face that had been hidden by the sun visor in the scamera's photo.
But Cumbria police were sneakily monitoring the site, Pepipoo.com, and now Stephen Quas and his girlfriend have to wear electronic tags, as part of their heavy community service sentences "for perverting the course of justice". He got 240 hours’ community service, she got 200 hours.
Others have been caught the same way -- so be careful what you say on a permanent notice board that's both open to the world and very easily searchable.
