Driving along the bypass on the way home there focusing on the road ahead doing about 80-85and saw out of the corner of my eye headlights from a van coming up along side me, not realy thinking much of it sat at the same speed and just as the van was overtaking me noticed it was the police! Lol oops haha :lol: didnt pull me over or anything I slowed down and they zoomed off ahead quite happily pheew lol

I had this just before christmas and I was a very lucky boy. I will drive past a battenburg as quickly as I would any other car, if they do me, they do me, theres no point playing the angelic sunday driver when your near one, as like I found out - an unmarked can be just up the road, and you will probably not notice them :)

It's called officers discretion.

It's funny how many people are afraid to overtake a patrol car even if the vehicle is going below the posted limits.

I just about got a ticket for that the other week...

Apparently i 'flew' up behind a marked corsa at considerable speed well over the limit when he was doing 70...according to my speedo i was doing about 71-72mph. you can imagine the arguement here... in the end he turned around and said, well i cant prove anything - exactly i was doing 70mph!

He also tried to say i cut lanes on the roundabout, well i was turning right in the right hand land, round the roundabout, indicated left and moved over - when he starting going his nut about that i said is that not what your supposed to do? and if im in the wrong, you are too as you followed my every move! He swiftly shut up about that and started barking about someone my age driving a mondeo ST... well you should have stuck in at the school pal :lol: (i bet he drives a 1.2 corsa)

Now thats why i dont like the police - well ok, some of them

My brother got accused of driving at 40mph on a 30 and he wasnt even doing 20. He'd literally just rounded a corner and was pick up speed. The policeman didnt even have a speed gun or anything. He just gave my brother an unnecessary fright and sent him on his way. My brother drives like an old man at the best of times lol. Im not sure his wee corsa can even get to 40mph :lol:

Ive got to say ive got no real problem with the police in general. There is a few that think theyre above the law themselves though same as any profession though I suppose. When I had an accident in my works van the reason I crashed was because I looked to my left mirror after passing a buslane and for some reason something caught my eye and I went into the back of a pick up truck. I was only doing about 15mph and luckily I hit his tow bar so there was no damage to his truck and little damage to my van. But the police by chance were just a few cars behind transporting a prisoner and they stopped to direct the traffic until another unit came along and they asked what happened and I told them the truth and he said when the other unit comes just say you accidentally hit the wrong pedal otherwise you'll be looking at 6 points for not driving with due care and attention. Just goes to show you there is plenty of decent policemen and women to balance the bad ones

It's a tad annoying when this happens as you'd think abide by the laws as we have to.

But then they're the Rozzers and do as they please.

I'm always 'yes sir, no sir, 3 bags full sir' when stopped. Just not worth opening your mouth even if you're in the right.
