    If you were speeding you may get a warning letter from the Police. In my area they even have volunteers with nothing better to do doing it!!

    SHHhhhh! You can't mock them on here people get quite offended by it!

    I know, I've had thread deleted and everything.......

    Ahem I'm sure if you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about mate. After all they're just doing a job etc etc etc....

    I'm offended, my sister was a hobby bobby. Its not her fault she had no powers of arrest, about as much use as a chocolate fire guard, And she's over weight - She's in the normals now like. Standards must have dropped

    My Zero Alpha was a hobby bobby before becoming a "Proper" Jam sandwich! TBH She did it because the course was a lot shorter to get qualified and because of my job we couldnt work it for her to go away for the 5 mths it takes a PC. They do actually do a good job as long as they are sensible and not just a young kid on a power trip, they do a lot of the more mundane stuff that used to take up a Coppers time (Scene guarding, minor traffic offences, dealing with yobs etc) and contrary to popular belief they CAN arrest! S24 PACE. All said Shes a PC now that Ive changed jobs and is soo glad she did it!

    A megane deisel does not knock but a megane diesel sure does. Keen eyed individuals will spot the difference.
