There was a London lawyer in Scotland working on a criminal case, when he drove through a stop sign and got pulled over by a Glasgow traffic cop.
The London lawyer thought that he was smarter than the Glasgow copper because he was a lawyer from London after all. Besides that, he was also certain that he had a better education then any local Jock copper and would be able to easily outwit him.
So, the lawyer decided to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Glasgow policeman’s expense at the same time.
The Glasgow cop walked up to the driver’s window and said in a broad Scottish accent, “Licence and registration, please”.
The London Lawyer, in a posh southern Cockney accent said, “What for?”
The Glasgow cop replied, “Ye didnae come to a complete stop at the stop sign”.
The London Lawyer stated, “Well I slowed down and no one was coming”.
The Glasgow cop replied, “Ye still didnae come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please”.
The London Lawyer asked him, “What’s the difference?”
The Glasgow cop, starting to get angry, answered, “The difference is, ye huvte come to complete stop, that’s the law, Licence and registration, please!”
The London Lawyer, thinking he is winning the argument, then said, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my licence and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket”.
The Glasgow cop said, “That sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir”.
The London Lawyer got out of his car.
The Glasgow cop took out his baton, started beating the living daylights out of the lawyer and said, “Dae ye want me to stop, or just slow doon?”
