An EU rulling demanding the UK hands over the personal details of 38 million drivers to 26 foreign police forces has been slammed by leading traffic lawyer, Nick Freeman, he said;
Each country has different laws and it’s as simple as that. If I’m stopped in France for committing a motoring offence then I’ll get punished in France. If it is speeding this is usually dealt with by an on-the-spot fine.
In the UK, speeders have their licence endorsed with penalty points in addition to a fine. I cannot understand why the EU is demanding this. To me it is sinister.
We are not a federal state. If this move goes ahead then what next? Will Europe demand all records held by the HMRC?”
Once we hand over this database it could lead to cases where UK citizens are wrongly fingered for an offence and being subjected to a European arrest warrant.
And, if we were to leave the EU as a good number of the population want us to, what happens then? Once it has been handed over there is no chance of getting it back!”
