    While agreeing with most of the above , it is worth clarifying that exemptions extend not only to other emergency vehicles but can , under certain circumstances , to ANY vehicle .

    The vehicle itself does not have to belong to one of the emergency services but must be being used for police , fire or ambulance purposes .

    This could extend to a hire vehicle being used by one of the services , or even to a member of public's vehicle commandeered in an emergency , even with the MOP driving - so if a cop jumps into your car and shouts 'follow that car' you are acting under police instructions and can claim exemptions .

    Yes , I have that particular T shirt , although in my case it was a fire brigade vehicle .

    Just as with tickets gained in my own car , I put my hands up , even though I was genuinely on my way to a job it was simpler just to pay up .

    I once tried to contest a parking ticket slapped on my car in Glasgow city centre when I was attending an incident ( despite the blue light on the roof ) and ended up paying it myself the night before it was due to double as the staff supposedly dealing with it had just left it sitting .
