RE: Digital preview of the new issue of CAR magazine

I am wondering if somebody could enlighten me about the traffic laws and enforcement in the UK. What happens when  you violate the law? Do you get a ticket like we do in the USA? Does the police officer keep your driver license until you show up in court?

I help California drivers contest their traffic tickets so that they don't have to go to the court and pay a hefty fine, attend a traffic school and watch their insurance premium go through the roof.

I am sure the UK system is different and I am interested to know what the differences are. Visit my website and take a look.

Great magazine this month. Worth it for Georg Kacher's story alone.

@MSD2591 - apologies for the ongoing delay. Turns out Google had our on-sale date incorrectly stored in their system as 20 August. They have been unable to change the date on this occasion, but the Google Play version will go on sale tomorrow. Sorry once again. Every other date in their system is correct, so this should be a one-off.

The latest edition still not available on the Google Play Newsstand. This is a real shame for anyone who subscribes, I hadn't hit that button before now and I'd be less likely to do so now.
