When driver Michael Mancini developed a stuffy nose while stopped in traffic, he did what seemed logical to him. He applied his handbrake, took a tissue, and blew. This simple act has left him in legal limbo, awaiting a potential court date.
The ticketing officer, Stuart Gray, has a history of issuing superfluous citations, including a £50 fine to a man who dropped a £10 note, even after it had been retrieved.
Mr Mancini´s solicitor has sent a letter to the procurator fiscal attempting to explain away the situation, but was rebuffed, and threatened with further action if the fine is not paid. A court date has not been set.
