    a lot of over-reaction here, I would certainly be peeved if it was me.
    what annoys me is when a plod car is at the traffic lights and a cyclist runs a red and they just sit there and do nowt.

    It’s highly unlikely that Morrissons car park would be defined as “private”
    I think you might find it is.

    FFS bregante gave you a huge clue –

    It’s highly unlikely that Morrissons car park would be defined as “private” as the public have access over it so under the road traffic act it would fall into the category of a “road, or other public place”

    – and in your determination to be a clever clogs you still failed πŸ™‚

    I got pulled by a Copper for pulling away from my parking space whilst putting my seatbelt on. Apparently I should have put my seatbelt on first before pulling away??

    My brother and his Mrs are Coppers so I won’t harp on about it, but surely to God they have better things to do than hang around a car-park pulling folk for such trivial matters?

    FWIW, I agree with you and would have been applicably “cooperative” in the circumstances. Presumably they were short on crimes to solve. πŸ™‚

    Why didn’t you put your belt on before you set off? You know, like during your driving test?

    Being honest, they were alright but my gripe is that they are spending time sitting around in a souped up BMW pulling folk for trivial things

    I thought Police cars were pretty standard?

    FWIW I often get people knocking on my car window when I’m on ‘standby’, usually with the words “quiet day then”. I’m often tempted to say I’ll test their obs and do a quick ecg so I can be seen to give value for money.

    And yet it seems that when it comes to wriggling out of a parking fine on a supermarket carpark it’s suddenly considered as a private carpark…

    That would have been an invoice issued by a private company.

    They can’t issue “fines”

    Nothing to do with what the area is legally classified as, just to do with who has issued the ticket/invoice.

    I’d take a fair bet that no one has ever recieved a “fine” for not wearing a seatbelt in a supermarket car park either. πŸ™‚

    Er, the answer to that would appear to be yes. Hardly his fault if you’re ignoring the evidence he’s provided.

    I once got stopped by the police for not having a seatbelt on. I’d also just pulled away from a parking place, though was on a road rather than in a car park. Like the OP I got a warning rather than being ticketed. Unlike the OP I think it was a perfectly reasonable thing for the police to spend their time doing, and I’m quite happy they stopped me.

    I see no evidence of anyone being prosecuted for not wearing a seatbelt in a supermarket carpark.

    Maybe you could show it to me?

    I once gave someone a ticket in a privately owned public car park for not wearing a seatbelt. If that helps πŸ™‚

    And for balance, I’ve never given anyone a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt. Ever.

    If you are a rozzer and it stood up as legal i’ll say that i’m wrong.

    You asked about whether traffic laws applied in supermarket car parks – here’s the result of 1 minute of googling

    No idea, it was a seat belt day of action and I wasn’t allowed back to the station until I’d given one out! I assume the bloke just paid it, was only Β£30.

    Except I replied to this:

    “Yet so far you’ve not done a very good job of showing that Traffic Laws don’t apply in Public Car Parks have you ?”
    And you’ve done a good job of showing they do?

    your point appears to be that you can’t be prosecuted for not wearing a seatbelt, when given that other traffic laws apply, clearly you can.

    and if that’s not good enough, another couple of minutes threw up this:

    Exactly what point are you trying to prove here? Do you really think that because nobody has been prosecuted for not wearing a seatbelt in a supermarket carpark (if that is the case) that proves it’s not illegal (despite ample proof that other motoring laws apply)?

    From what you say she was not on the private part, ie the car parks.
