Well this made my day today.
Spotted a new 08 reg black V6 Turbo Vectra, sitting on the slip road out of Toyota on the A50, whilst driving back from Manchester this afternoon, rear lights were winking on and off quite quickly, thought was abit odd broken indicators maybe, but couldn't see anything else, no other cars around etc, so didn't really think much more of it.
Bit further down the road, I notice same car is just passing me, and is an unmarked police car, with single PC, with black vest, white shirt driving.
Things that give it away are single small aerial in middle of roof, blacked out windows in rear (it's a 5 door hatch), no badges but V6Turbo on rear, and assorted things stuck to the windscreen. You can't see the lights in the front or rear.
Anyways, I pull out to pass a slow moving crane at a sliproad, just as a Transit CityLink Parcel delivery van comes down, moves straight out into the road and almost right into the side of me! He then sits on my bumper as we pass a few trucks, before almost driving up the central reservation as I move back over. I grimace and wonder where the police car is when I need it.
I spot it up front tailing a Mercedes and a Porsche, but Van Man doesn't know and hairs off up the road!! Just as I think the unmarked Veccy is about to turn off to Derby, VanMan screams by at what must have been 90mph plus and with that Vectra changes his mind and zooms off in pursuit towards M1. VanMan gets slowed up by other cars and then decides to do a bit of weaving, almost decding to do a bit of undertaking, before finally getting away again, at this point they are away in front and I thought he had gotten away, but.....
No he got him at the Donington turn off. Absosutely made my day. Finally a police car about WHEN I want one. What a T%&T VanMan was and deserves everything he got. Well done that man.
BTW, lights on Veccy are two small blue ones tucked in top of rear window, plus rear lights/fogs flash intermittently. You can't see them, until he lights up, you have been warned.
