How do they know when you bring your car in?

    Ever hear that question asked before?

    I brought a car in over the weekend through Rosslare and I made a conscious note of the trip from the boat, through the customs area and out onto the road.

    1. 2 cctv cameras on the boat
    2. a man in a hi viz checking your car as you drove off the boat
    3. where the area splits into 3 lanes there were 6 cctv cameras
    4. you may or may not be stopped 'for a chat' at this point
    5. when you drive through the covered in area there are a further 4 cctv cameras
    I was stopped by a cop for a chat. He said he liked the car, said he it was lovely. I thanked him and he waved me on to the next guy who waved me through.

    When I got home I checked the footage from my dash cam which shows the chatty cop speaking into a radio as he walked over to me. I didn't see that as I was looking elsewhere. The dashcam also shows a woman in a hiviz quickly appearing with a clipboard, looking at the car and then walking away all whilst I was chatting .......

    Ah sure it'll be grand. I'll stash it till its 30 and then VRT it. They'll never know when I brought it in!!

    Que loads of replies of how people got theirs in and got away with it!
