Not a hypothetical for me... I put a mate in this situation.
We were rushing to a garage just before closing time to get a part for my car. A laden quarry truck pulled out causing us to slow right down, at the bottom of a long hill. Overtaking here is technically illegal (road markings) but perfectly safe (wide road, long visibility, no turn-offs etc.). We looked at each other and both said 'Go!'.
Unfortunately neither of us spotted that the white van behind was a police van :eek:
My mate took the points, I paid his fine. The least I could do, no question.
PS: Interesting twist... My mate didn't initially tell me about the fine, he made out he'd only got a stiff talking to. Guess that makes us both 'good guys'.
