Getting paid to take points – would you?
Ha knowing my luck the day I agreed I’d get flashed and there’d be film in the camera.
So hypothetically yes but I’d need at least a grand, don’t get out of bed for anything less.
Then I’d need the necessary false ID, passport etc to avoid STW lynch mob, me being such a reckless criminal and encouraging others to be so..Posted 3 years agogrievoustimMember
Take the points, then what? Find out later the car was in a hit and run 10mins earlier. What’s that Mr skiprat? You never mowed down a pedestrian? But we have this document on file that you admitted to driving the car?
mmmm good starting point for a modern noir crime thriller therePosted 3 years agocrankboyMember
Don’t do it . simple economics of crime suggests it is a bad move too . Chances of detection not high but significant. immediate penalty significant at least 4 months probably a lot more . long term impact unemployable in any responsible job and real risk that if you were ever accused of a crime or the victim of a crime this conviction would be used to destroy your credibility. You would also find it would put up your insurance premiums house and car.Posted 3 years agobigphilblackpoolMember
500 quid!!!!! A lad we work along side on site takes them for 150 quid!!!!
Know of at least 2 lads whove used him and succeeded,naughty yes but to be honest how many of us lot speed on a daily basis? Im not talking 100 on the m way but like 80 or 70 on a dual carriage way?Posted 3 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
Is this payoff anything to do with the amount of points the other person has on their licence at present?Posted 3 years ago
I took the 3 points 3 years ago rather than do a speed awareness course. declared it to my insurance company & lo & behold…no change to my premium but even more lo & behold I actually got a cheaper quote the following year after declaring it on my new quote!
Does the other person have points already or do they just want a clean (looking) licence?maccruiskeenSubscriber

succeeded….. so far. Both the parties- the ones that offloaded the points and the one that took them are in contempt of court. They have got the rest of their lives to find out if they got away with it or not.
The guy that took the points… thats not a one-off payment of £150 I take it, he gets £150 every week in perpetuity to buy his silence. Is that right?Posted 3 years agobigphilblackpoolMember
Sorry breadcrumb ive bin in scotland too long 50mph for a van on dc.
No the lad took one payment of 150quid off each lad so 300 for 6 points.
I feel dont take the micky and you wont get stung. Ive happily sat in work van doing 83mph on the mway with a copper in a unmarked sat next to me with no pullover.
Now our vans are all restricted due to some stupid eu directive on new company vehicles so no risk of speeding.
However i fell its unsafe having revs and speed limited as most people sit at 75-78 and our vans counter this and no chance of overtakes, so slowing down to fall back behind which in turn causes car behind to do same, not the best. Fun pulling out at roundabouts with only 2k worth of revs timing is crucial or a nice side swipe can occur.Posted 3 years agojulianwilsonMember
Good friend of my wife, respectable degree-level professional with no previous also went to prison for this. OP, its your criminal record, career, impact on family etc but even putting that aside, the risk of getting found out and the consequences she served was no way worth £500.Posted 3 years ago
