Friend was rear-ended by someone trying this on the M1 as her tag didn't read so she had to stop to pull out.
Cops were called.
Northern Reg, no tax, no licence or ID produced.
Cops let them drive away - through the toll. 1500 quid damage done to my friend's car. The guy stopped answering his phone after a few courtesy fob-offs. Gardaí said due to the northern reg it's a 'grey area' about 50 times.
The Gardaí won - my friend lost the will to chase it with them and gave up.
The investigating Garda surely has to shoulder some blame for not establishing their identity.
I feel sorry for your friend, when the law is on the criminals side.
I certainly wouldn't just take the hit lying down.
