The five Manchester City stars who were fined by police have been named as Shay Given, Kolo Toure, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Patrick Vieira and Stephen Ireland. All were who spotted driving vehicles with tinted windows were too dark to be legal as they arrived at training on Wednesday.
All players were given £30 fixed penalty notices.
The fines were a result of a sting operation mounted by the Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA) at the Carrington complex car park.
An officer from Greater Manchester Police’s Road Policing Unit, working with representatives from VOSA, stopped a number of cars on Carrington Lane, Trafford. A spokesman said,
“The cars were stopped and found to have illegally tinted windows. The drivers were issued with fixed penalty notices and prohibition notices. A variety of companies can tint windows of vehicles to add privacy for the owner.”
It is not known at this time how many crimes against the person or property in the Manchester area went undetected that day due to this mind blowing allocation of police resources.
