3 police bikes together is normally training unless they are on escort duty.

Yes they have a total disregard for residents and other road users when it comes to training. they must cause disruption, noise pollution and endanger life in order to train, thats in the handbook!

Training? I duuuno but if we did that on public roads we'd be nicked for dangerous driving / street-racing. They should do high-speed training at Oulton Park or somewhere...!

High speed training at Oulton Park would be pretty pointless wouldn't it because when it came to the real thing on the roads it's not going to be anything like a race track at Oulton Park isit?

The maximum speed limit is 70 in this country, if the need to learn how to control their vehicles at speeds in excess of this they should do it off road, making race tracks the ideal places, the so called traffic can be made up of other police vehicles so it is safely controlled.

Screwing it down a motorway or an A road full of normal drivers, who are unaware what is going on, is asking for trouble and will at some point in time be the cause of a tragedy.

There are far to many idiots behind the wheel of cars on the roads with radio's blaring, and not taking enough notice of the rear view mirrors nowadays, without throwing high speed chase training into the mix.

By the very virtue of that reply, none of the emergency services should then be allowed to exceed the speed limit in order to get to an emergency then. How many people in this country stick to the speed limit or drive as they should do!?!

That's the whole point of training - using other members of the emergency services to act as MOP's on racetracks where there are no junctions, traffic lights etc is useless as, like you say, most are akin to crap drivers (not taking notice of rear view mirror, other road users, music blaring etc). It is far too difficult to attempt to recreate how the public MAY act.

It's those MOP's that should not be on the road in the first place! When people have attempted to get someone out of a burning car, and had to watch the trapped person die in front of them because the fire engine couldn't get there quick enough because of such bellend drivers or locals moaning that their village is not a place to speed through, then they should moan!

Nobody was injured or killed today so I don't see the problem. I'd rather the emergency services train on the roads so that they are prepared for any idiot behaviour in case I, or those I love, need them in an emergency.

Has it been confirmed that it was a training exercise?

Totally agree with Wench's post.
At the end of the day, whether they are training or on a call for assitance etc, you should be aware of them whilst driving any how so whats the difference. What would be the point of training on a race track!

When your Nan dies because they got there 20 seconds too late, you'll think limiting emergency services to the 'speed limit' is fcuking ridiculous.
