    They might be.  Your country might be one of the leaders of the free world, but the traffic laws there are downright communist.  And that was before any kind of crisis management mode was implemented.

    He was stopped because his wife wa illegally sitting in the boot, and only then was the matter of an unnecessary journey discussed.

    They prob stopped that car as it had an irregular load , like wood sticking out of a window.  Obv they cant stop everyone.  The dull fickers stopped mate on the way to work because obv ppl always go out on their 125 scooter at 7 am and 0 degrees C chilly northerly wind just for no good reason. 

    Stupid c**nts.

    Only people whose cars have been identified by ANPR as making suspiciously long journeys presumably.

    Only those who are clearly going on unnecessary journeys and clocking up excessive miles.

    Most people have more sense.

    Forget the headline story, the chap drove 220 miles for £15 windows!

    But yes, there is a lockdown in place, there's no point saying that non-essential journey's are banned if there's not gonna be enforcement.  Enforcement is the only reason people obey laws although it doesn't appear this driver was issued with a "Covid fine" here, just sanctioned for the other "offence".

    Yes. The law currently is that people have to have a good reason to be travelling.
