    I hate cops

    And I know I aint the only one either :roll:

    I was driving home just now when a cop car turned up and followed me for a bit (not that I did something wrong though) and as I was doing a steady 40mph until I approached a roundabout when it changes to a 30mph zone. I began to slow down, but the cop did not and switched into the left lane and overtook me with no intention of slowing down! I was thinking if I did that she probably would have stopped me or something. So, as she went passed, I pointed at the 30mph sign to tell her she was speeding :P. Not sure if she saw me or just ignored me, but she just went over the roundabout and disappeared!.

    If she did stop me for pointing out to her that she was speeding, could she have done me for being cheeky or something?

    Nah, just tell you to respect them

    Let's face it, they are a law unto themselves. Live with it

    iv been told that without the the blue lights going they have to do the speed limit or go WELL over the speed limit as to stop people tailing and saying "well the police car was speeding"

    not too sure how true it is

    Not true. They are supposed to follow the same laws we do regarding speed, however they have certain techniques for working their wa round this. :roll:

    Without the sirens on they have to abide by normal Highway Code laws.

    re: I hate cops

    Seen cops do that many a time...

    We have them new SPECS cameras down near us and just the other day in 30 limit, cop car was right up my arse while i was doing 30 so i went to the side and he overtook, started tailing the next car and then eventually slapped his flashing blue lights on, overtook everyone and sped away only to be standing at the traffic lights just around the bend. :x

    Apart from motoring stuff I still respect them for the job they do. They dont get that much money, id have become a policeman if i wasnt short (5ft 10") and got paid more for being one.
