He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Police’s expense!
Irish Police says,’ License and registration, please.’
London solicitor says, ‘What for?’
Irish Police replies, ‘You didn’t come to a complete stop at the Stop sign.’
London solicitor says, ‘I slowed down, and no one was coming.’
Irish Police says, ‘You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License And registration, please.’
London solicitor says, ‘What’s the difference?’
Irish Police says, ‘The difference is, you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!’
London solicitor says, ‘If you can show me the legal difference between ‘slow down’ and ‘stop’, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.’
Irish Police says, ‘Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.’
The London solicitor exits his vehicle. The Irish Police takes out his baton and starts beating the living daylights out of the solicitor with it and says, ‘Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?’
