Nobody like paying fines but some people go to extraordinary lengths to avoid them. Shafkat Munir had been caught speeding three times in the space of two months and fearing he would lose his driving licence, he hatched a rather cunning plan. He had already contacted the police to try and contest the fines but having no luck, he instead tried to pretend he had died. A man called Rashid Hussain called the ticketing office to say that his friend Shafkat Munir had died in Pakistan in 2002. The same man then forwarded a death certificate to the police. Although the certificate had several errors Hussain still insisted his friend was dead. However when the police rang the mobile number given by Hussain, Shafkat Munir answered the phone. Not the brightest plan. Munir was later arrested.
