Snail blamed for traf­fic fine

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - LUKE SALKELD

LON­DON: It’s cer­tainly a lit­tle more orig­i­nal than claim­ing the dog ate your home­work.

Still, po­lice were less than im­pressed when they were told a van failed to dis­play a proper tax disc be­cause a snail had nib­bled away at it.

Luck­ily, me­chanic Jon Roles and his fa­ther Steve pro­vided un­de­ni­able pho­to­graphic ev­i­dence – and po­lice waived the fine.

The snail slid into the Peu­geot while it was bro­ken down and nib­bled away the tax disc. But this did not stop the car be­ing tick­eted. The po­lice even­tu­ally re­lented. – Daily Mail
