    my work involves travelling, so everyday someone (another worker) picks up some people and takes him with them, today me and 4 colleagues were going to work and the police pulled him over, it was clear the 2 in front were wearing seatbelts, however in the back the two other colleagues were not wearing there seatbelts, and when the policeman came over he didn't even care to look or check he just said "all 3 in the back were not wearing seatbelts".. what can I do?

    then what you have to do is find out whether they had cameras in their car that can see into the window where you were sitting

    when you're poor and are barely able to survive, it doesnt seem so bad.

    Taking it to court will increase the fine from 100 to 500. You'd still have to pay 😂😂😂

    You've basically asked for advice (which people are saying is just to pay the fine as it is your word against the police) and then stating that your not going to. Pointless post really.

    You do realise they have power to take it from your wages and/or benefits, right?
