    Default Would you pull a Police Officer?

    Not what you think!!!....

    Was returning home from work yesterday and ended up following a police car off the motorway... got to the top of the slip and noticed one of the Brake lights on the rear of the police vehicle was not working.... I had a fleeting moment of self satisfaction, thinking "I know, I'll pull him over, tell him his brake light is out, and take the pi** a little". The only thing that stopped me was the fact that I was in my Police Civilian uniform, and I could just imagine the laugh they would have about that in the office!!

    So the question is; would you be a model citizen and tell the police officer his vehicle was defective?!?!?

    p.s. MLC... might want to check the Brake lights on the Fronteras at Pershore!

    nope i wouldnt although you do see it quite often which makes me think they dont follow the Rospa guidlines and check ove rthe vehicle before driving it off . (must admit, when i did it, i thought 'ferk this... im not doing this palaver everytime i nip to the shops')

    Saying that, i dont always tell regular road users now after being told to ferk off, its none of my business, when i told an old bloke once.

    I don't think I'd tell a bobby just in case he thought I was trying to be a smart 4rse, and I don't think I'd tell a normal road user as nowadays road rage can be triggered by anything.

    I have told an ambulance driver though, just after he nearly caused a pile up at some traffic lights as he had no brake lights at all.

    Light might have gone and they were on the way back to the nick to change the bulb. It's pretty hard not to know there's a light gone on the Vectras, after all there's a flippin big warning light that tells you.

    Jamie......I don't go near the Frontera, horrible, horrible thing (sorry Cyb!) No proper seat adjustment, gash your knuckles when you try to reach down and adjust seat with the door closed. (But then, I don't really like 4x4s full stop). Gives me back ache every time I walk past it. It's the oldest car on the fleet and it's only got forty odd thousand miles. Our 04 (oldset) Vectra has got 133,000m.

    And to answer the question, most bobbies wouldn't mind in the slightest a person politely pointing out that a light had gone.....just don't follow it up with "you'd do me if I did that".

    I did it once!!

    When I lived in London I'd cycle every day to the studio I worked at. A police (Panda) car passed me and stopped at the red lights just ahead. I noticed one brake light was out. I then came alongside on the inside and the passenger side window was down with an officer in the seat. So I mentioned to him that a brake light was out - purely in a helpful manner for their own benefit.

    He said to me "OK, thanks" but the look he gave me on his face was "OK thanks, now f**k off you smart a**e!!" LOL

    I have previously told a WPC off for parking on the zig-zag markers up to a pedestrian crossing. She had been parked there for well over an hour. (I was a student at the time and the car was there before a lecture and still there when I came out) Anyways, as i came out she was getting back in, so I had a quiet word with her, stating that there was a university car park not even 50 metres away, and parking is not allowed where she was, Highway code etc.

    The answer I got was a little surprising to say the least, and her attitude really sucked. She clearly had a problem with me having a VERY polite word with her. Clearly she looked down on me as a student or whatever. The she told me to 'urine' off (but not so politely).

    That made me really not impressed, and because I had an hour to kill before my next lecture decided to go down the local nick and make a complaint about the way she spoke to me.

    I was trying to be nice and she just wasn't having any of it, so she got a 'little word' from the duty inspector and I got an apology.

    I have done it since regarding dangerous driving, / speeding by police cars without lights or siren and given the shocked driver a very big telling off. Police are upholders of the law and should set an example. Why should we tolerate what can only be described as terrible driving, just because of the uniform. Not fair, and we should not.
