DISGUSTED when ordered to make a late payment charge of 100 euros for a traffic fine, Daniel Hidalgo got his own back in the best possible way.
The 35-year-old had been ordered to pay the supplement despite producing a doctor’s note proving he was unable to pay in time.
So the father-of-two, from Murcia, stormed off to the bank to have the entire 200 euros changed into 15,000 separate coins weighing seven kilos.
Hidalgo then went for a coffee and only returned to the traffic department five minutes before it closed demanding that the money be counted in front of him.
“I understand they’re a load of jobsworths, but I know perfectly well that if one of their friends or family had been in an identical situation, they’d have let them off,” Hidalgo fumed.
