Stopped to get checked in cars

Heard it from someone..that if you are 2 persons in a car, you could be stopped to check if you belong to the same household? Has anyone encountered this lately?

Hear it on a FB Group early this morning but not sure if true or not. I imagine it could happen though if two similar aged women or guys in a vehicle.

There is too much traffic out there for the Circuit Breaker to be very effective (you need 90% lockdown the epidemiologists say). I expect we will see an app soon that we have to carry at all times and show why we are leaving the house. You can blame the stupid rule bending sinkies for that one.

The other day when we went out for a walk (3 people) a patrol car passed us by and the policemen inside clearly were looking at our small group analyzing...

But with the live vehicle traffic, I don't think they would do anything unless it is very obvious/suspicios.

If the cases climb expect to see much harder clamp downs. And the cases will climb unless we follow the rules.
