it was just a question that i couldnt get answered when i typed it into google so i asked here maybe people shouldnt judge until they no the FACTS!! In my books this is bullying and you all should be ashamed.
If you care to read the first reply to your post I did tell you the answer to your question.

Spain is not a bannana republic and the laws are enforced by an efficient police force. They are not so politically correct as in Engerland and IMHO that is no bad thing. You would never see teenagers riding stolen motorbikes wearing hoodies in the UK.

If you expect a reasonable response it is advisable to give a full explanation rather than throwing a hand grenade. Some of us have been victims of those driving without insurance and are naturally a little sensitive.

Exactly it works both ways and IMHO you got the response you richly deserved.

I'm sorry that you have such a sensitive disposition that you took exception to some of the responses that have been made to your first post on this thread but I don't think it qualifies as bullying or abuse, and if it does I think your subsequent posts on here suggest that you are more than capable of standing up for yourself and are not averse to attacking others members.
Posters comments have been directed towards the type of people who drive uninsured, your comments are directed at individuals.

I hope this thread doesn`t get the chop cos i have worn my little fingers down typing out Karma.

PS. Driving uninsured is now a criminal offence in Spain with a few weeks in Alhaurin at his Majesties pleasure.

I think Missile means in Spain. Because you would and do see them in the UK!

I did mean UK, it was intended as the lowest form of wit i.e. sarcasm.

This thread is going nowhere.

I think it has now been made perfectly clear that driving without insurance in Spain is a very serious offence.

Enough said - I am closing this thread.
