A 71-year-old man from British Bristol has been trying for three years to challenge a £ 100 (eight thousand rubles) fine for speeding. According to the BBC, he spent 30 thousand pounds (2.4 million rubles) on the proceedings.
Richard Kidwell was fined in November 2016 from a traffic camera, which recorded that he was traveling at a speed of 35 mph (56 km / h) at the permitted 30 mph (48 km / h).
- The man was not going to pay the receipt, as he was sure that he was observing the speed limit, and the complex for fixing violations, probably, turned out to be faulty. Challenging the fine in court, Kidwell hoped to resolve the issue in a couple of days, but the proceedings dragged on.
The prosecutor's office said that the disgruntled driver constantly provided new evidence of his innocence, which is why the court case has been going on for so long. He spent about £ 21,000 on lawyers' fees, £ 7,000 on legal fees and the rest on travel costs. But the court remained adamant, so the Briton still has to pay a 100-pound fine.
- As a result, Kidwell regrets that he got involved in a dispute over the violation and spent almost all the savings left for his three sons as an inheritance. According to him, he just wanted to achieve justice.
