Laughing out loud

I got done for going over a solid white line. Bang to rights on it. I was turning right at a roundabout and everybody else generally is going straight on. Sat there not moving for a few mins and I'm ten yards from being able to turn right so thought sod this… indicated right and very slowly drove on the wrong side of the road which you could see was clear all the way. Blue lights came on and they did me.

Offence code 88 which I can find nothing about on the net.

Im pretty sure I have just had a bump in a car park, i was reversing, heard a noise but it wasn't really that loud. I didn't make much of it, cos there was a long grid underneathso thought it was that and just drove off. I get back and I have scratched the back bumper just a little bit. There were plenty of people around and I drove out of the car park slow so im confused, surely if someone saw it they would of stopped me.

Has anyone on here ever been to a Police Car Auction? Or know where they are kept? I've tried the google route but hasn't been too helpful? Apparently there are some real bargains to be had at these auctions.

i know nuff north london dealers muck, and they have never told me this story. (maybe its a trade secret)
they all go to enfield, bedford and blackbush, but none of them mention the 'old bill' sales or of any sl500 amgs with 80% discounts cos the police are such nice people and all the other dealers dont bother to bid cos its impolite to push up the bidding for a decent car if its a police sale.
