    Yep, I see them all the time, they seem to have one speed - 40mph. They'll stick at 40 when it's National Speed Limit. What do they do when they then come to a village where it's 30? - yep, they just carry on through at the same 40!!

    I thought they were special somehow, confined to Stoke....obviously not!

    Hmmmm....although I may have possibly heard one of the boys in blue on here admit to deliberately driving at 60 down the motorway, watching the traffic queue up behind him.....

    And what's the deal with filling up £10 at a time? I'd far rather fill up a full tank and only go once a month than do £5 or £10 and fill up every ferking week!

    what about the drivers who brake down to 15 mph for every speed ramp, then accelerate to the next one ... then brake to 15 mph...
