“I have now lost ALL respect for the Neath Police! My son went from work to pick my daughter up at Neath Train Station and was pulled in by two jobsworth 'officers' for having one headlight dimmer than the other - which he hadn't been aware of! Fined £30 and treated like a criminal - they even read him his rights and asked if he wanted a solicitor present (in the back of their car!)! How can you know until someone has warned you? Driving around a well-lit town it is impossible for the driver to tell! Surely the police should have pointed out the problem and then asked him to pop in with car next day to show he has had the light fixed? For a while I have wondered about why this country is rife with vile crimes now I understand - the police are too busy pulling in decent people who have not even committed a crime, just not noticed a minor defect - it could have happened on his journey to the station - are you supposed to stop and get out of your car every couple of hundred yards to check all your lights are bright or face a fine? My son is a hard-working and upstanding member of the community and this attitude makes me sick. That's it - no faith in the police any more...”
