    Default What's your views peeps?

    I've just read this on another forum and thought I'd get your opinions -

    So this police transit van does a U turn and follows me, i set cruise control bang on 30mph. Follows me for about 2 miles, then blues come on, so i pull over, and hope straight out and walk upto him.

    "any idea why i pulled you over?"
    "nope"
    "whats the speed limit on this road??"
    "30mph"
    "so why weren't you doing it then son!"
    "I was cruise control was set at 30mph"
    "Well you were doing at least 34mph!"
    I won't say what i said to him at this point since its a family site!
    But i asked oh so 34mph, what speed camera equipment do these transits come with these days?
    "Erm nothing!"
    "alright so you used your speedo to judge i was doing 34mph! Isn't the accuracy 10% plus 2mph?"
    "Well yes but,,,,,,"
    "But nothing thats 35mph, so why did you actually pull me over? Young lad in a nice car, or was it cause 2 modded cars were following each other?"
    "No it was cause you were speeding!"
    "But you just said i wasn't!"
    Then he did full check on car, tyres, insurance, Tax, Mot.
    He said well you were just the unlucky one, cause if honda was behind i would have pulled him over, but don't worry won't take me long to find him!
    "Nice to see the police keeping themselfs busy these days!"
    At this point i took his name and number and said i was gonna report him!
    Discuss!

    That's what I was thinking. The comments on the other site are all .. .. .. .. shall I say derogatory.

    Had it myself a few times when I had the Astra. Got tugged for overtaking someone once (a Ka doing 50 on a 60 road). Officer said I was going too fast for "the conditions". I asked him what conditions they were exactly and he replied that the roads were icy. I then explained to him that was rather unlikely because my car had a temp display on it and that it was reading 5 degrees C. Told me to get on my way after that!

    It does seem a cleaned-up and one side view.
    When was the last time you saw a Police transit pulling a car over ?
