icWales has a small article about some driving myths that Tesco Motor Insurance has found out from surveying it's customers and also some from Top Gear magazine.
One in five motorists mistakenly think they can go fast enough to beat a speed camera - Even though you would have to travel at 171mph!
You do not have to tell your motor insurer if you have fewer than six points on your licence;
You cannot be booked by police officers if they are not wearing their hats;
You cannot pick up points for speeding in a hire car;
You cannot be booked for driving too slowly;
Speed cameras can only catch cars in the left-hand lane.
So next time you're driving too slowly on the motorway in a hire car and the police officer who books you is not wearing his hat, just tell him he can't touch you!

icWales: Caesarean birth will be shown live on TV to 'demystify' op
In yesterday's Daily Links post I linked to a story about a man who was charged with necrophilia. It turns out that he cannot be charged with necrophilia as it is not a crime in California, the place where the crime took place.
Instead the man will be charged with stealing the key to enter the funeral home and two counts of trespassing. He is likely to be let off on probation.
