Why should police have to go by rules and guidelines about having to advertise where they will be parked and having to stand out like a sore thumb so everyone can see, when the criminals they are trying to catch don't advertise where they will be speeding or stealing cars.
The idea of sending video clipe to the police is a good one, I have thought about it myself. But.
I asked a retired chief police inspector whether it was worth driving around with a camera on then sending any clips regarding driving offences in to the police.
He said in theory it would be a good idea, but in practice, the amount of video evidence they would get in including people just taking a dislike to other road users for no reason would be enormous. The police have so much on their plate nowadays due cutbacks in staff and all the paper work they have to do, they probably wouldn't bother with it all.
Tis an idea lol sadly the display of anything that simulates lights is an offence as far as I know
I'll reword it
get a couple of fake aerials on the roof, some plastic light surrounds in the rear window that look as if lights would be fitted in them (or those emergency amber strobe lights you can get on ebay, but obviously don't use them on the road) and wear a hi vis vest and people might think your an unmarked police car.
Plus from reading that link, it suggests that unmarked cars have two people in most of the time. In that case if you are on your own, get a blow up doll with a hi vis vest in the passenger seat
James, I am aware that blue and red flashing lights are illegal for none emergency services to use, but I didn't want to write too much and lose the plot
Saying that, are they allowed to be fitted providing they are only switched on on private land or shows, in the same way things like blue neons, and red lights showing at the front of the car are only allowed to be used in the same way. Or is it illegal full stop to have them, for example when emergency service cars are sold on and their lights have to be removed or painted over.
Driving around Bradford is like walking through a jungle full of snipers.
It sure is. People don't believe me when I tell them driving in Bradford is a completely different world to driving anywhere else in the uk.
I have a strange premonition that, if you had an accident and its your fault, the fuse for your cam will just have blown that morning so it wasn't working and you were going to get it fixed as soon as you got back
