Stopped only once by the police, brief document check, no bribe and a cheery "on you go, sir". And a result elsewhere!
Outside one of our farm bases there was a pretty gruesome crash involving a sleeping lorry driver and a Lada, suffice to say the Lada came off worse and he won't be worrying about his no claims anymore. Anyhow, the local constabulary needed some place to park the lorry and what was left of the Lada while they carry out some sort of investigation. As a result I met the local Chief of Police who kindly issued me with a "get out of jail card" to flash at the local plod next time they stop me.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
