Man City striker Carlos Tevez banned from driving because of language barrier | AOL Cars UK (http://cars.aol.co.uk/2013/01/17/man-city-striker-carlos-tevez-banned-from-driving-because-of-lan/?ncid=wsc-uk-cars-headline)


He's had two cars confiscated because he doesn't have a valid driving licence, he gets stopped for speeding numerous times but gets away with it.....and now he claims he disregarded letters from the Police because his English isn't good enough

He should have his work permit withdrawn and be kicked out of the country. He's just another arrogant foreign t*** taking the piss out of the rest of us

Send him back to Argentina

The person of note is not Tevez but the solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, who specialises in making "worrying cases disappear" according to his website.

He has also acted in gangland murder cases, multi million pound drug importation cases and death by dangerous driving cases.

Which is good of him. We wouldn't want the wrong people getting sent to jail, would we?

With earnings of 150,000 a week surely he could afford a chauffeur

Doesn't wash - he must have someone who understands the situation who can communicate with him in his own language.

How does he acquire these vehicles? There has to have been some intermediary. You cannot just walk in and drive out without having some English exchange.

This isn't the first time he's had a vehicle confiscated by the Police - he knows [email protected] well what the procedure is.

Obviously his right foot is too heavy. Should have it amputated.

Fines are meaningless as specific numbers....

Fine you or I 10,000 and it hurts...yet for this guy it means nothing.

Fines only have meaning as a % of net worth.

Fine him 25% of annual salary and that will maybe make him reflect....

Even if he doesn't speak English, I bet he can count.

The Manchester City striker and Argentinian international will face a 6-month ban from driving because he failed to understand the word "constabulary" on official documents sent by police.

The Argentinian is obviously fooling around, like it doesn't know what a dictionnary is... Or cannot open one???? He comes directly from the jungle? I don't think so. So this story is all [email protected]

However why does the police not call itself "police" when sending documents to the population? I am sure you can find millions of english speaking individuals not able to give you a definition of "constabulary". They should keep this kind of vocabulary for internal documents just to avoid this kind of stupid story here.

In Australia, the "sport" Mr Tevez plays is referred to as "wogball", and stories like these suggest that soccer is exactly that.

Oh! I don't know, I'd be happy with 75% of his ( I think )

err it does.. big F**k Off letters with the word POLICE, for example, my local area will say Surrey Police and have a logo of the shield on it.

For a 'notice of intended prosecution' there's little mistaking it being an offical document.


as a side note milo:


He's had two cars confiscated because he doesn't have a valid driving licence,

you need to have a valid drivers licence to own a vehicle, you must have one to drive it on a public road.


he gets stopped for speeding numerous times but gets away with it.....and now he claims he disregarded letters from the Police because his English isn't good enough



the term in the professional word is 'taking the piss' do you blame him, the 'piss taker', or those that enforce the law?

you don't need a valid licence to purchase a car. However you do need a valid licence to drive a car on a public road. All Tevez has is a Provisional licence - a learners licence, which only allows him to drive supervised.
By driving unsupervised without a valid licence he would also be invalidating any insurance he holds on the car - generally regarded as a serious offence, and one for which repeat offenders have been imprisoned.
In Tevez cases, as far as I can see he has been caught speeding, driving a car with no licence, by implication without valid insurance, and then failing to identify the driver of the vehicle. For the latter offence theres a max fine of something like 10% of annual income, a ban AND potential imprisonment.
It really does strike me that with his repeat record he should have been treated rather more severely.

And then deported...

Tell that to a large percentage of S. England. You'll be saying they have to have insurance next

For most of the worshipped football players, the laws and rules of the land seem not to have the same effect as intended for the rest of the populace. Money and power talks....

He should be deported to the Falkland Islands. The locals will give him an appropriate welcome.

The question of insurance is a slightly puzzling one.

AFAIK, someone would have had to answered questions as what kind of licence the applicant held and for how long this has been held. A foreign licence might in some cases be acceptable (immigrants can usually drive on a foreign licence for up to a year. If classed as a visitor, the 12 months applies from the date of last entry, if a resident then it applies from the date of becoming a resident.).

Of course a high profile occupation like a professional footballer would attract a very high premium. What if the vehicle was registered as being owned by a management company?

Whatever the method, it will be well known to the players. The brief in this case acts regularly for City players.

The law is only for poor people.

He's not the only one. Apparently Nick Freeman is 'Mr Loophole'. He was the guy hired by Jeremy Clarkson when a loaner from Alfa Romeo was clocked doing 82 in a 50 in London. It turned out there was no evidence to link Mr Clarkson with the vehicle at the time. Phew! Another innocent rich person nearly banned from driving. He didn't even have to go to court, with the attendant risk of meeting poor people.
