    If people think we speed alot they should check out these guys.....

    More than 50 police officers in Avon and Somerset were caught on camera breaking speed limits in 2006 while not on emergency calls, according to a report by the BBC.

    While police cars attending an emergency are let off from such offences, there is no such leniency for police cars on normal patrols.

    The BBC gained the information under the Freedom of Information Act, which showed that police cars triggered 640 speed cameras in Avon and Somerset in 2006.

    Around 90 per cent of those were not prosecuted, but Avon and Somerset Constabulary said that officers in other incidents would be fined.

    Its a ****ing joke really, was driving beside a police car earlier, i was doing about 43 on my speedo in a 40 and they were going alot faster than that past me so they must have been doing at least 45 even if their speedo was out they were doing more than 40, but its not like they were chasing anyone, just trying to get home faster. Yet people doing just slightly over the speed limit get pulled all the time. My brother got pulled the other day because he "sounded faster than 30" he couldn't believe they said that to him, and hes always getting pulled and having to bring his insurance and license to the police for no reason, we think hes getting 'bullied' by them, hes never been done for speeding, just been asked at least 5 times to bring his insurance details to the police to check it out, one police officer questioned him being able to afford his car, asking whether he had it on credit or not.

    Problem here Bubba is a lot of the young fellas running about have no licence or insurance, so they tend to stop anyone who looks like they're driving something they shouldn't (in otherwords not a 1.2 Corsa or Clio with Halford's ram-raid mods).
