Man demands trail by combat for motoring offence!

The trouble with living in the UK is that there are still laws in force that date back hundreds of years, in many cases these have been overlooked as they have no place in modern society. Yet it seems that in some cases these ancient rights could come in handy. Take this guy in Suffolk, he was in court for a minor motoring offence and was fined £25. But, instead of paying the fine he demanded that the matter be decided by that time honoured method of Trail by Combat with the champion representing the DVLA. It goes without saying that the court in Bury St Edmunds rejected his appeal. If you like this then check out more on Oddman.
