    Default Cops and seatbelts

    I drive out of petrol station today and immediately stop at a red right.... next to me pulls up a police car with 2 wpc's who look about 13 years old ...
    (maybe I'm getting old)

    The wpc point to me to put my window down....bzzzzzzz

    Me ... yes officer can I help you.

    WPC ... get your effin belt on or I will effin do you.
    ( they didn't use effin but the real word )

    Me... I'm exempt from wearing a belt as I have a medial exemption form, but, wouldn't it be better if you both had a belt on before you swear at a member of the public to put their belt on....

    So they pull me over and go right through my car.. everything above board

    Question 1
    Are police exempt from wearing a seat belt ?
    I was under the impression they are if they are transporting a prisoner in the back.


    Question 2
    Do any of the cops here pull other drivers over for not wearing a seatbelt when they don't have one on themselves ?

    Language like that should never be used by any police officer. They'd be facing a disciplinery if reported.

    Still no excuse. Cops have very strict guidelines concerning language.
