Q: Do police vehicles have to comply with road traffic laws?
A: In general, police vehicles must comply with road traffic laws. This includes complying with the speed limit unless doing so would hinder the purpose for which the vehicle was being used. In these circumstances a police vehicle would display blue lights and sirens unless doing so would hinder the purpose of the response (for example by alerting a criminal to their approach).

How many times have you seen a police car breaking the speed limits without "BLUES N TWO'S" On...... Maybe time to get the Video camera out so Watch Out Mr Police Man......

REVENGE IS SWEET.......

I'm not bothered when they speed. I hate it when they drive at 25mph, and I'm behind them.

Apparently, you can't be done for any road-offences if the police car that pulls you over is defective in any way, ie headlight or backlight out.

I was told to F***ing move the other night when i was waiting for a friend to come back from the bank.

Ok i was on double yellow lines!!. But my engine was on and i was indicating, and when he said that , there were 3 other cars doing exactly the same infront of me!!

I told him i`m waiting until he gets back, MOVE NOW he said and i told him not till my mates back, anyhow he drove off and completely left the other 3 cars alone!!!

Victimised due to a young lad in a modded car???
