The police were pulling over random veichles on the 'four bridges' road yesterday.
But it wasnt police -well, no uniform- talking to the drivers.
A sign said 'census'. Anybody know what 'its' about?

I didn't think that just anybody can flag traffic down. Thought there always had to be a legitimiser among them.

I think a Ministry of Transport official could, they all had yellow safety jackets on. Don't recall what was written on them.

Probaly had Ministry of Transport on the back, I don't think they're allowed to have "Beckham" and a no. 7 on.

Saw that yesterday. They're 'surveying', I think they're taking details down like sending your census form off. If so, it's a bit worrying having a police officer pulling you over. They also had two vans parked at either end radio-ing in the car details as you passed.
See if anyone official can confirm what they were doing.

That's a bit strange! Why would they need to know that? What part of the census did they do?
