Motorists getting clobbered while thieves and attackers get let off again. Driving with road tax is wrong but £700 for it, vs £15 for an assault? Ludicrous.

The moral of this article is that is you are going out to beat someone up or steal something, make sure your car is taxed and insured.

Curious that all of the people charged with motoring offences did not turn up at court and seemed to have been punished more heavily as a result.
