    Banning Of Radar Detectors

    Banning Of Radar Detectors

    I don't much value in banning them?? There is always the "rumour" that they are to be banned, but that was probably started by my gran (she's against most things made after 1953). I'm not aware of any pressure from Police Chiefs to get rid of them, but it might be a europe-wide plan...

    Manchester Police Chief does 104mph

    A shame to hear you say that - but can't you split the Political from the practical? (ie the Police want to achieve the same goals as the majority of decent citizens, Politicians dictate what are the acceptable tools for the Police to use and the rule by which they can use them). At the end...

    If he was on assessment, the vehicle was being used for Police purposes and so he had a valid legal exemption.

    Manchester Police Chief does 104mph

    It's unfortunate that your grandma had a bad experience - did you complain? and if so, did anyone take the time to explain what investigation was being done? :( You've watched lots of TV programmes? Hey! Well done. Great source of evidence! :crazy: As for the young/old split..... :D...

    Manchester Police Chief does 104mph

    I think you are having difficulty separating the Govt spin from reality - if the only offence you commit is speeding, then it seems no bad thing that you are concerned that you might get caught. Traffic Policing is getting less and less funding, but the Govt push for more cameras and publicity...

    The only person guilty of double standards here is you!! lol 100 doesn't mean disqual, it just means the magistrate has to consider it as a serious option - otherwise there would have to ber aggrivating factors to the speed. "Zero tollerance" is popular until folks realise it applies to...
