Rough translation of an encounter earlier today:
"Can you see what that little display says, sir?"
"Yes, officer, I admit it, I probably WAS going that fast in my MINI Cabrio"
"Are you aware that there is a fixed penalty fine for exceeding the speed limit by that much?"
"I know you, sir. I'm practically a neighbour of yours! I've seen your car around - is it really as much fun as it looks?"
"Absolutely officer, it has put the enjoyment back into motoring for me"
"I can see that, sir! Sorry, I can't spend all day chatting - I have law-breakers to apprehend. You go and have a nice day."
So today is officially MY LUCKY DAY!
(Oh yeah, and I also heard there could be a job offer on its way....)
