    Default just a rant

    last nite we took our boys out for a drive to get them to sleep at about 00.30 we were pulled by a ford galaxy undercover cop car (didnt flash us with sirens) they got rite up us and flashed there beams at us! so nath moved to edge of kerb to allow them to over take thinking it was boy racers, then a cop stuck his head out and told us to pull over we did! nath went thru an amber unable to stop in time (stick to me to a lie dector to prove it) the cop said that the reason he stoped us! but funny thing was this ford thing was no were near us when we went thru lights a good unseenable disance behind us so how it saw us do it .

    but he then didnt give anythin to nath to say he been pulled over he said he was letting him off by not givin him a ticket n points (yeah try n i would have had them in court for going thru red light n speeding with no sirens on that a traffic affence right? and the fact the light was amber when thru it)

    I want to know if anyone else agrees with me or had it happen to them that the real reason we were pulled was becasue we were judged nath stocky n bold n driving a decent car n it was late at nite! we understood n were coropaite with the cop but his attidute stank i think this is wrong .

    sorry went on i needed to get out of my system

    reasonable grounds to stop a car and see if the occupant smelt of alcohol - no doubt on the hunt for drink drivers which i feel is a valid persuit

    I'd read your highway code and if you feel victimized make a complaint. A police officer can stop you for any reason and doesn't need a reason. You admitted going through on amber, he also said you did so therefore it is obvious to me that he saw you.

    Be thankful it was just a warning, oh and if somebody had nicked your car, i'm sure you'd be very thankful that the police officer stopped it and got it back for you!

    i'm not upset at the fact we were stoped that i respect and understand a cop has a job to do n doing it. i should have pointed out before sos that it was nath that told the copper when he asked the reason being pulled nath said was it because we went thru and amber, sos should have said before.

    i'm just ancry that he didnt tell us y it was nath that gave him a reason i just wanted to knw y he stopped us and not told us the truth he had said drink driving or anythin to indicate y i wouldn't b bothered but he didnt this is y i'm upset about it n i cant complain because cop gave no papers to us to say his badge n name i knw cops do not need a reason to stop but when u do stop with out reason u must give us a document to say u stoped us

    i always used to pull people driving around in the wee small hours - only people that used to be about were druggies, drinkers, burglars and the occasional person on the way to / home from work -

    should have asked to see his warranty card or some form of police ID before dealing with him especially if he pulled you without blues and twos.

    Is this a wind up,taking your kids out in car to get them to sleep,worse thing you can do they expect it all the time,plus you run the risk of bumping into a nasty bobby.

    exactly what i would have done!!

    well actually i would'nt have stopped! an ordinary looking car flashes you to pull over in the middle of the night there is no way i would have stopped, at the most i would have waited until i got to a public place with other people about, it could have been anybody, police uniform or not, no blues and twos,no stopping i'm afraid....

    Same here, I wouldn't have stopped for that. Too many stories about.

    PS. what a warranty card Knox? My car has expired it's warranty, does it matter?

    Also, OP, your writing style is difficult to understand without punctuation and grammar
