    I'm not game to produce a camera if I was stopped.:eek:

    I figure taking a pic at the time, would only make things worse, wouldn't it? :confused:

    This guy was a total rissole, I contested the charge and It was cancelled within a week. It helps having a senior sarge and a lawyer in the family.

    Just cruising the backblocks of Swansea and siren and light pull-over! A most polite officer that let us off after Carol gave him a cuddle..
    Is a Hyundai a 'real' police vehicle??

    It's a Kombi Pursuit vehicle. Not enough power to persue anything else...:p

    Those Hyundai Iloads could learn a thing or two from the Kombi. The silly things struggle to make it to 80 thousand without completely shitting themselves.

    Driving back from bs 2015 we were pulled over for a 'random' breath test. I say random because the police had to overtake other vehicles to get in a position to flag us down. Don't have a pic, can I photoshop one?

    Don't be to hard on the cops, we would be living in a rotten world without them, and they never seem to get to many brownie points do they.

    You want them when your house has been broken into/ your stuff stolen. But not when they book you!
    I agree with Chris.
    We would be living in a rotten world without them! Not a job I would ever want to do!
    Get to be abused on Friday night when you're loading them in the divvy van drunk & then get to do the door on death (drove drunk) "Your child is not ever coming home" on Saturday. Can't pay me enough to do this! Yeah, I've known a few cops to be able to understand.
    Like all in this world there are good & bad. Now I'm older I've actually met some good ones;). It's amazing how they've improved as I grew older!
    They still pick on my dirt bike as they don't do a rego check & when I take off my helmet they are very surprised at my age (always older than them) & become reasonable very quickly:).
    Cheers,
    David H

    Well, there I was, driving along and a police car passed... he turned and followed, lights aflashing. My first thoughts; SPEEDING?! No. REGO!? NO. BALD TYRES?! No... err, WEAVING?! I pulled over (slightly nervous!) and he just wanted a photo as his Mum is called Dot and she loves Kombis! Well done NSW Police for a nice bit of roadside PR.

    Too easy to complain about blue lights but I think we should be a lot more appreciative of those who are prepared to do the job! Not something I could do..
