London, Sept 23 : A woman driver is livid over police officials - because they told her she looks like a man.
Pauline Synnott, who dons a short haircut, was caught speeding and admitted it in a letter to cops.
The 59-year-old resident of Gillingham, Kent was expecting a 60 pounds fine and three penalty points for doing 52mph in a 40mph zone.
Instead, the cops who looked at the speed camera photo claimed that the driver was a man. They sent a letter to Pauline's husband Roy Watkins, 65, who owns the car, asking who was driving the car.
"From the copy of the photograph it appears that the driver was a male," The Sun quoted the letter to Roy, as stating.
"It was definitely her driving. I am fuming and Pauline is very upset - any woman would be if they were told they look like a man. I want compensation for the misery and hurt this has caused," said Roy.
Kent Police said: "We are working with the couple to resolve this matter."
