Did You Know?
The police find the broken rear number plate of the Ford Sierra car that knocked the old man over! But it clearly shows before the accident that the cars rear number plate was already missing. See more
Much is made of Roger Massie's car losing its rear license plate following the hit-and-run, with Frost deducing it was deliberately left behind. However, before the old man is run down, the car crashes into other parked vehicles and loses its front bumper, including the front license plate. Nothing is ever said about this nor does anyone attempt to investigate that part of the incident. As such, the issue of the rear license plate being left behind would be moot, as they would have the front license plate anyway. See more
Oh, come now, Inspector! Twice in the past...
Twice in the past, your son has been charged with reckless driving. And twice in the past, he's got away with it- Sorry, he's been proved not guilty.
He *was* not guilty.
And if he's not guilty this time, I shall be the first one to give him a lollipop.
