2005/03/21 16:10:00 - "I solemnly, sincerely and truly declare and affirm…
…that the evidence which I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

—The Standing Civilian Courts Order 1997 (Parts II and IV)

Well, we had our day in court. It was a bit stressful (in the these are scary people sort of sense), but I seemed to survive (and then went into town, lunched, and went to work).

The defence lawyer tried to assert that one or all of us had shouted racist abuse at the defendant (who needed to have an interpreter in the court), and also that the event was a result of us attempting to get around a parked car in the bus/cycle lane that we were in (rather than the coach coming into our space).

Diziet reports that a conviction ensued — Driving without Due Consideration – 3 points, £100 fine, £500 costs.
