Matt lfc. I bet if your car was robbed you would ring them to get it back. It may be frustrating gettin pulled over but if u watch police show like traffic cops, road wars etc you will see what a positive job they do. Now as long as u don't break the law keep ur lights in order insure ur car don't speed don't drink and drive then hopefully you'll never get stopped. If you do give the copper a break say yes officer no officer and if you are innocent you'll be on your way. Now if that means twenty innocents are stopped a day but 5 uninsured or banned driver's are caught I have to say that the roads are a better place. We don't have to accept this but we should understand why these crimes are happening... With all these cuts and enforcement on benefits will make some people commit crime because to them its a good option. If it is young lads who have nothing and no one then it might look like a good score. I hope these people are caught and are locked up for a long time.
I got stopped 3 times last night, in the 3 hours before I posted this. Once by Lancashire, twice by Cheshire. All 3 claimed they were just doing random stops to check for drink drivers, but surprise surprise, none breathalysed me, usual excuse they give to be nosey parkers (or to avoid doing real work).
My family are police for 4 generations now, my uncle was a traffic sergeant, his son is currently a PC in Merseyside, and he has heard of instances whereby a plod has pulled a car in order to avoid having to attend a domestic - work it out?? I've certainly nothing against the police (my grandad would roll in his grave if I did), but some take the feckin piss, and I am certainly not surprised some people hate them.
And where is the excuse for ragging the shit out of their car just because nobody is in a position to do anything about it - cars and fuel that taxpayers pay for.
