View Full Version : What is their problem?
I'm gettin shit sick of being pulled over when the only thing they (the cops) can find wrong on my car is my number plates! Do they not have enough REAL crimes in this country to be investigating or preventing, instead of hassling me because my plates dont conform to some uptight regulation? I honestly dont understand what the problem is when the plates are perfectly legible, if it was impossible to read then i'd gladly change them.
I was on my way back into work after my break when the cops pulled some young bloke in a Pug 106. Perhaps he had sped thru town or something, i dont really care, but when i went to go past them i got pulled. Sat there for 5 mins and then the cop tells me my plates are illegal. Are they that busy avoiding real work?
We all know that motoring is expensive, i know it for a fact, but my car is taxed, properly insured, has legal tyres, all lights functioning properly, i wear my seat belt, have a provinional licence, no speeding ticket in 3 months and never got a parking ticket, yet this is the 5th time i've been pulled for no good reason. Why the **** cant they take care of real crime??? :eek: :mad: :eek: :mad:
Tell me about it m8. I didn't get pulled over for number plates being obscurred. I was approaching a mini roundabout from one entrance and approaching the roudabout from the entrance on my right was a police car. Now I stipulate quite strongly here (& the passenger in my car will agree) the police car was not on the roundabout, not even close infact. I obviously pulled out carried on my merry way. Only to discvoer that looking back in my rear view the cop car had pulled a u'ey and was now following me. About 1 mile down a bit of dual carriageway the lights came on & pulled me over into a layby.
The wench of a poilce women then proceeded to ask me over & over again what I thought I had done wrong. I was quite clear that I was unaware of any problems, I was not speeding (for once) I had not broken any road bylaws that I was aware of. She kept hammering away until eventually she got so agitated she blurted out that she was approaching from the right of me at the roudabout & I was suppossed to give way.....now as I'm a nice chap I wasn't gonna have a standup argument wiv her about the fact she wasn't on the roundabout when I pulled out. She then started going on about what would've happene dif she was on a blue light run....for feks sake....I would've stopped!!!
Anyway she did cross check to make sure the car was mine, then gave me a fecking producer.
The thing that gave me the right arsehole was that she spent almost 30mins dribbling on at me on this occasion. The next week one of my mates cars had some little fecker put a stone through the window and when we called the police they said would we mind coming down the station as there are no officers available!!
Theres none available alright, coz they are all to busy pointlessly pulling people over or getting them done for speeding 5 mph over the speed limit. IMBERCILES! :devil:
PS Sorry....had to vent! :o
you'll love this then, apparently here in somerset they are pioneering a new scheme where neighbourhood watch gropus are going to be taught to use speed guns, and then let loose to patrol their own areas, reporting the data on speeding motorists to the police.
I'm going to join a group, or maybe two and nick the speed guns, or accidently drop them :D
What do the police get paid for I ask, can't even be bothered sitting in bushes at the side of the road now!.
Cool, I'd love to catch a Police car speeding with one of those guns! Unless I'm mistaken the Police are not allowed to break the speed limit unless they have their blues flashing!
Also, would be cool to stakeout the local police station and catch some officers speeding when they leave the sation to go home! :)
Oh you KNOW that..!!!
Gimme gimme gimme... I know a shed load of coppers and including once of th drivers of the Subaru Impreza rozzer car in Hull, and I know for a fact that all the traffic cops speed all the time (he lives down my street).
Justice would be sweet.. lol
I see the cops are at their usual "best"
Maybe its Women cops? My Dirty Number Plate fiasco earlier this year was a woman police officer. Nah - they're all dipsticks. I'll tar them all with my wide wide brush. :D
(still pissed about being stopped earlier this year!)
