The Brits are amending their Road Safety Bill to include a provision for law-enforcement officers to clamp foreign-registered vehicles that muff the rules. Inspired by falsified names/addresses by cross-Europe truckers, the po-po will now be able to clamp vehicles from other nation-states if the drivers are unable to pay the fine. By the way, can we mention that we've always thought that "lorry" was a stupid word for a great big freakin' truck? That's like calling Robin Tunney "Gustav" or something.
