    Default Police Poll

    I know there are a few copper's on here. If you are a police officer, which traffic car do you prefer to use when working? Vectra, BMW 5-Series or Volvo? Unless your force use something else, other. Which one?

    I work for Herts and I'd say Vectra for overall but the Volvo's are excellent.

    I'm none of the above... but drive an emergency spec Volvo every day, and used to have a vectra as my daily...

    Given any option though, I'd probably choose the Octavia VRS, although the Volvo is a lovely car (my complaint comes down to turning circle)

    Yes the turning circle is poor in the Volvo but the seats are so comfortable aren't they.

    That is a very good point.... but a bit too comfortable in my honest opinion..

    and our old car was a mercedes E-class... which still beats everything else hands down

    As a general rule I try to have nothing to do with the police (in a nice way of course), but on the way to work down the A1 Monday morning I overtook at 71mph a fully marked up Vectra Estate with "ANRP Interceptor" written down the side. Gotta say, it looked pretty solid, and strangely the word "Interceptor" gave it that Mad Max touch....

    It is a good solid car. 71mph lol. You'll be ok in Herts up to 79mph, that's the general rule 10% + 2mph. Don't risk it though! We have an Interceptor Team now, all the Vectra's with a sticker on the bonnet stating it's in Interceptor!
