Autotrivia quiz – Friday August 17 – August 23, 2012


Last week, in an effort to beat the ‘Googlers’, I asked what is the common viewing component in an MGTC and a MAZ tractor?  This common component is manufactured by the same process and has been the subject of law suits and anti-trust legislation and the technology dates back to 1905.

Enough clues, what was it?  It was the windscreen glass, pioneered by Triplex and is called the flotation process over molten tin.

So to this week.  In 1959 a driver in the UK was found guilty of a charge and fined three pounds.  What had he done and how did they catch him?
