I got out of my car, I just said 'yes, I did it.' They made me get into the back of the police car. I just sat very quiet, let them do their stuff, answered their questions, didn't get into any apologies or tears, and they let me go with no action against me. Very lucky.
They said 'We get called out to nasty accidents at that junction you know... now have a Happy Christmas'. If they'd given me a sixty quid penalty and three points they would have been well within their rights.
