I'm gonna have to assume it didn't go well for Dave, because he refuses to answer this question. If I had to guess without a really good attourny he
lost his car (as he didn't have even 1 out of the 4 things required to get it back, and there is no way to get all those documents in 2 weeks time),
spent the night in jail, and never saw the 20,000 pounds he tried to charge the officer to step out of his vehicle. Nice job getting him to sign
that, get a witness signature on it, and have it notorized and you would have been 20k richer.
He probably drives a beat up car now, which he should have done in the first place when trying this experiment out. Unfortunately some officers kid is
probably driving it now after getting it cheap at a police auction. You live and you learn though.
But I DO
commend him though for at least trying to become aware of laws or statutes, then living how he wants to live accordingly, and trying
to do it in a safe ,and responsible way.
But I don't see this driving without a license or registration or insurance working, definitely not here in the States. The laws are fairly cut and
dry on what you need to operate a motor vehicle on public roads. You can play the semantics game all you wan't unfortunately any vehicle that uses a
motor for propulsion is a motor vehicle. Also here in my State in the US, you cannot operate said motor vehicle without a driver's license. It is
against the law unfortunately. So I wouldn't advise anyone to try it. At worst you'll be arrested and your car will be seized, at best you'll be
paying a hefty ticket for driving without a license.
Also I'd like to say haveing watched all three videos, and I don't know if this is a rare occassion or the norm but...the officers there in the UK
seem alot more polite and patient compared to police here in the States. If this had happened in the States, first the recording would have ended when
your arrested, how they allowed him to continue to record after being arrested is beyond me. Secondly the police wouldn't have looked at your papers.
Once you refuse to show Identification, your most likely out of the car and going to jail till they can figure out who you are. They will do this to
people stopped walking down the street. Whether it's legal or not (probably not) that is how it goes usually. Here in the States it's much easier to
carry Identification with you. Without an ID or License you can't do anything. You can't get on a plane, see a doctor, but cigarettes, alchohol,
But Good Luck to you in the future Dave. If you find some "legal" ways for people to change their lifestyle in a way that will be beneficial to them,
please do share them with us.
