BACON, SAUSAGE AND BIKES FOR THE ‘BEST OF BRITISH’ SEATS IN THE HOUSE

IF you’re a fan of fast cars and bikes then you’re in for a real treat when you purchase your sausage and bacon!

Premium sausage and bacon brand, Lazenby’s, has teamed up with Donington Park who is hosting the British Superbikes and British Touring Cars final races of the season. To celebrate the launch of its branded traditional Dry Cured Bacon which compliments the Lazenby Best of British sausage range, lucky consumers can obtain tickets worth £20 each to the finals at Donington Park motor racing circuit in September!

Several thousand tickets will be up for grabs and all via an on pack promotion. When tokens have been collected from two packs of Lazenby’s Dry Cured Bacon and/or Lazenby’s Best of British premium sausage, which includes Pork & Herb and Traditional Pork Chipolatas, they can be redeemed for tickets to either the British Superbike Championship Final on 18 & 19 September 2004 or British Touring Car Finals on 25 & 26 September 2004.

The promotional packs will be available in most leading retailers from mid June to end August 2004. Lazenby’s delicious Best of British Bacon and Sausage range are definitely the best in their class, not just any old bangers!

MOTORISTS FIGHT TRAFFIC OFFENCES

ALMOST one in two motorists offer excuses to try to avoid being penalised for road traffic offences such as speeding, jumping lights or parking fines, according to a report by RAC Legal Services.

With 7.6 million parking fines issued and 1.7 million speeding offences last year, public resentment towards traffic wardens, speed cameras and parking restrictions is reaching boiling point.

However, with the Government proposing to deploy new civil enforcement officers to crack down on driving offences, the Motor Insurance company warned drivers they must brace themselves for more penalties in future and ensure they are more aware of both the traffic laws and their legal rights.

One third of drivers often plea ignorance to traffic restrictions, with a further quarter blaming other motorists for their driving offences. Interestingly almost half of drivers would not even contest a driving penalty to save face when penalised. 

Mark Hodges, spokesperson for the RAC said:- "The public is getting increasingly frustrated with wardens and fines. It is becoming more important for people to be aware of the traffic laws and to recognise the proper route for appeal if they have a legitimate excuse. Civil enforcement officers are now on the streets, the public must develop more awareness of the traffic laws and of their legal rights."
