    Ambulance Rapid Response Cars

    As far as I can tell, things like ambulance rapid response cars and ambulance bikes don't fit the definition of an ambulance or ambulance purposes, as they cannot be used for "conveying the sick, the injured or disabled". If this is the case, what gives those vehicles the right to use blue lights/sirens and to exceed speed limits? I'm guessing there's probably an amendment or some case law that I can't find somewhere, but it's been bugging me. Cheers!

    Blue Light Use By CFRs

    I know, I know... Sandford Ambulance Service dispatch first responders to medical emergencies. As with a lot of these schemes, the CFRs aren't allowed to respond on blue lights. However, they are permitted to place a blue 'scene protection' light on a stationary vehicle at the scene (provided that it is not their own vehicle - to avoid a CFR responding with the light and then claiming they had placed it on their vehicle at the scene).

    Hey all, I just saw the strangest thing in a Lidl car park in Edinburgh. It was a Mitsubishi Outlander, unmarked with a light bar and sirens. As he was exiting the car park he activated his light bar and grille lights then as he approached the junction to the main road he activated his siren and sped off. I wish i'd got a photo as it just didn't look quite right! Anyone seen a similar vehicle or know of its uses? It wasn't on diplomatic plates and the occupants didn't look like emergency service workers (they were of a rather large build). It looked similar to this car but with the addition

    Blue Light Use Off Duty

    Hi all After numerous debates with both other regulars and specials at the nick, no one seems to know the actual legislation with regard to blue lights off duty. Attesting as a police officer both in regular and special constable capacity, enables you to step in if you feel comfortable off duty, become a reliable witness etc. Basically going back to the "if you have your warrant card on you, you are never theortically off duty." So far I have been a special for 9 months and stepped in three off duty events. 2 of which were dealt with myself, and were resolved quickly. The third was a large pun
  6. Hello I'm putting together a buisness case for my force to allow specials to be SR trained. Does your force allow specials to drive on blue lights with all the exemptions ? And if so how difficult was it to get a course ? Any obstacles ?
