Well, not exactly

I pulled over to check my phone on an small A road on an evening at 2AM (left engine running). After about 10 mins waiting there a police toyota pickup truck pulled beside me and got me to wind down the window. I suspect they were seeing if I was smoking drugs in the car. They said alright mate, I said alright and they seemed suspicious, I just said I pulled over to check my phone then went ok then drove off.

I was slightly worried as I had left the engine running which technically they can still get you for driving using a mobile phone.

Pretty interesting that it took that short a time for police to turn up. Nothing was wrong but i was a little scared.

I wonder if things like this has happened before to other people?

i got pulled over(few years ago) in my old meastro van at 1.30am,my m8 was fast asleep in the passenger seat,we were doing a load of overtime(chippys).1st thing they asked as soon as i stopped was 'have you been drinking sir as i can smell alcohol'.
no you bloody cant said i,
oh must be your m8 then,NO THINK YOU NEED A CHECK UP AT YOUR DOCTORS,if you can smell drink.
this went on for about 10 mins,when i said i dont mind being pulled over if you had just said you looked suss and we wanted to tug you,but comming out with crud like that wound me up a tad.
while this was going on the site agent came passed wetting himself,pulled over and said to the 2 lady police officers 'you want to nick em,theyve been in the pub all day' then the git drove off.luckily they saw the funny side checked the van out etc and let us go our merry way.

i cant comment on the Police but the ones over here are Wasting tax payers money on fuel, and hiding behind SOS phone box's on the motorways with speed cameras in ther hands,
hammering the working class people while the others have no intention of working stay in bed until 2pm then go robbing houses while the working class are in their jobs, trying to earn a living then get a phone call to say their house has been burgled,
speed home to check the place and get a ticket from the guy hiding behind a phone box with a speed camera,
end result we caught you speeding home and fine you but the guy who robbed your house well we didnt cath him so easy,

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]Parked up with the engine running at 2am, I would certainly give you a tug, that's what police patrols are paid to do; keep the public safe. Glad they gave you a clean bill of health and let you on your way. :P [/font][/size][/color]

I have never liked the police, nothing to do with the job they do but their attitude. I have been pulled many times, mostly in my teens but its how they think they can speak to you.
I have no issue with them pulling up as you were stopped in a strange place so they might have wanted to check you were ok. When they start asking all the questions and so on, is what gets on my wick. I've got tax, insurance and an mot so I can drive on any road at any time as far as I'm concerned. I am usually very sarcastic with them as I have nothing to hide - usually gets right on their nerves.
If you do feel hassled though, get their number and ask their name and tell them you are going to put a complaint in for hassling you going about your own business.

As you say Stoney, theres a cross match out there, good and bad. I have only been tugged once, I was 17, out at half midnight, in an old crapper of a motor with my barely older colleague in the front seat. I pulled over to drop him off, then all of a sudden this police car pulls diagnonally across my nearside wing, penning me in. comes round to my side of the car and starts having a chat, asking why we were out so late, when I told him we worked in the local brewers fayre a few miles down the road, he shook his head, and called me a microwave technician! I said either he lives there and eats regularly or theres another reason he knows that, and he fessed to being an ex one himself :P, he had a valid reason for us being there, but of course, it was best that he checked, a quick laugh at our companies expense, and he let us on our way. Not yet been on the receiving end of them, but I have been at accident sites first aiding and had them around and they all seem cool. If I got pulled and they were behaving like a rear end of a donkey, I would probably play nice for a few minutes, then adjust my attitude if they wouldnt drop their tone, but if they were pleasant enough to deal with, I would fully co-operate, and tell them about the giant stash of cash in the boot, with the tonnes of guns in the fuel tank and the drugs in the engine bay :P mind you, if they started looking, I would have to ask "if I had that cash, do you think I would be driving this car ;))

I very much believe in treat others as they treat you, and if you cant bring them down to earth, its understandable why you would play the game back to them, but I feel sorry for those who have "that car", you know, the one that is ALWAYS stopped, no markers, no reasons, just its always you... then I can understand the reason you dont feel the love for them :P

Not had the time to stalk you yet Stoney, the mrs and little one (and little one to be) are keeping me far too busy! I will let you know when I have [s]stolen your identity [/s]found you on the net lol

I trust that you probably have kept well out the way, but If I do find you I will let you know :P I can imagine any findings or sightings of data will mysteriously disappear shortly after ;) :P

Virtually impossible to check up most Officers of the law due to protection and privacy. You could at the most ask the department but then you need a pretty damn good excuse why you want his information and they will then run the law and confidential act. I thought about google and that, then i realised i don't have a chance in hell.
TDCiST
Been pulled loads of times.. Basically i work extremely unsociable hours so i get pulled for driving about at 3am etc etc etc...

Only once have i ever been offended by an officer, when he used innapropriate language towards me. I didnt bite, just slyly took his warrant number and complained... I got a letter back apologising and saying the matter had been dealt with.

Other than that, every other officer ive met has been great! maybe its because i'm not the usual customers they deal with...

I say they... That'll be "we" as of august!! lol
