Hi

I was heading into London along the A2 the other day when i noticed two police cars parked up at the side of the road.

Not strange you might think.. but had it not been for the blue flashing lights on both vehicles I would never have thought that they would use this age and type of car in regular service.

Car 1: T reg, Navy Blue Volvo estate

Car 2: Oldish, slightly modded Subaru Impreza.

Not even the trusty B2 would have spotted them :devil:

Regards

Tan

At night, on the motorway, all cars look the same in the rear view mirror... even if they are fully marked up police cars :devil:

*EDIT* There's a jet black Audi RS6 unmarked car that I have spotted on the M4, it was chasing a Jag XJ Sport at the time ;)

Last year I was driving my Dad's CL600 on the M5 heading towards Bridgewater on a Sat evening with my brother and our other halves... there was a Subarau that was playing a little cat and mouse with us... after being tailgated and cut up by it I did the same thing to it and we were both exceeding the speed limit. When I was getting clear of the Subarau and it was not keeping up - to my horror I saw blue lights flashing in the grill area and a siren sounding...

I immediatley pull into the middle lane and slowed down assumming the worse - then to my amazement the Subarau pulls up along side - the passenger gives me the thumbs up and they then accelerated off...

Still confused to this day if they really traffic police in an unmarked car or just couple of geezas having a laugh... :confused:

Flip,

The blue lights in the grill and siren only went on when they could not keep up any longer :bannana: but they still scared the sh*t out of me and nearly stopped my heart from beating...

I have to say I've seen far to many marked and unmarked coppers, with and without hairdryers earning overtime this bank holiday :devil:
