Kev, just continue this on the Grump thread and lose all the non-believers...
The underlined R is supposed to be an international recognised symbol for needing tracking/signatures. Only in France do they seem to ignore this...I do understand why some places insist on tracked and signed for post but it really is a total waste of time. I get fed up with extra and unnecessary cost.
The tracking runs out as soon as the Post Office hands it over the the French. It usually just says Paris and then which carrier it will go to and then.......nothing.
This arrived in my post box from Pendle without needing a signature as the packaging doesn't include anything the postie would recognise as requiring it and it had no paperwork to that effect. Basically it has arrived via the normal system in two days or so - as does everything else - and I've paid four times what was necessary for the privilege of paying for something that didn't happen.
I'm more worried that they can already work out I'm speeding from the ANPR cameras, Kent to Chester in 3hrs 20 mins, surely someone is going to twig that holistically they can determine speed.I draw some comfort from the many studies that show that 80-90% of drivers think themselves to be above average, so I'm quite sure than many of those who think that a dashcam is a great addition to their car will in fact record their own misdemeanours and be subsequently prosecuted on the basis of their own dashcam's evidence. That'll teach 'em!
