  1. I assume that the Lancashire officers are familiar with the case of Andrew Blades, one of your officers who has lost his job following a manoeuvre with a vehicle that resulted in a minor damage only collision according to news reports. If not, see here:- https://www.policespecials.com/forum/index.php/topic/150876-mp-slams-scandal-of-special-convicted-of-dangerous-driving/#entry2683796 I see the media is reporting that his case is being raised at various levels of government, including with the Director of Public Prosecutions. My question is, do you know of anything being done to help him and
  2. Evening all, A neighbour of a friend is a part time used car dealer (what joy!) and has recently started parking cars on the street in front of neighbouring properties. Is he guilty of any offence (the cars unfortunately don't obstruct the highway). Any traffic boffins know of anything he could be guilty under? Thanks in advance
  3. The age old dilemma. This is two scenarios rolled into one, and I'm interested in both your actions as a common sense toting officer, and your actions from a legal standpoint. 1. You come across a male in a car, parked on a sidestreet. The engine is off, and he is asleep in the vehicle. You knock on the window and he wakes up. When the male rolls down the window, there is a clear smell of stale 'intoxicating liquor'. You ask if the man has been drinking, He says he has been at the pub over the road, and having had a few too many and not feeling good to drive, he has decided to sleep in his
  4. A horrifying car was pulled over by police in Keighley, West Yorkshire. The grotesque vehicle was completely covered with lights and weird ornaments – with some kind of ghastly sculpture thing sitting on the roof. There are even horrid little dangly things on the tyres. The driver was reported for unspecified ‘offences’ after the car was stopped. http://metro.co.uk/2015/02/02/worlds-most-horrible-car-is-pulled-over-by-police-5046113/
  5. Shocking footage that has emerged online shows the moment when a cyclist was knocked off his bike before being attacked by a van driver. The cyclist's head camera captured the event, which begins with the van travelling alongside the cyclist. In the footage someone can be heard shouting "get off the phone you muppet". It is not clear whether that comes from the cyclist or from inside the van. Soon after, the van steers close to the cyclist and knocks him to the ground. The driver of the van can then be seen leaving his vehicle and confronting the cyclist, who at this point is still on the grou

    Tax Discs

    As I am not a PC, this doesn't actually affect me, but I saw this the other day, and it got me thinking. Car parked and unattended roadside. In the Tax Disc Holder was an out of date disk, however on the dashboard was the new, in date, tax disk. Would the owner still get a ticket for displaying an OOD disk, or would having the live disk visible nullify this? Is there any penalty for displaying two disks? Hope that makes sense!

    Special in training

    Hi all, just a quick question. I'm currently going through training in PSoS and have a question regarding Section 4 Road Traffic Act. Section 4 states that it is an offence for any person to drive, attempt to drive or be in charge of a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or public place whilst unfit through drink or drugs. Section 5 states that it is also illegal, however it also quotes that the alcohol just be over the prescribed limit. Would this mean that in theory you could be arrested for drink driving whilst below the limit as Section 4 only mentions that you must be 'unfit through
  8. Again, apologies as I'm pre-training.. You see a cyclist swerving around on the road, causing drivers to swerve and upon stopping you clearly see the rider is drunk. Apart from dangerous cycling, would you arrest for S30 RTA or S12 Licensing Act 1972? What would make you choose one over the other? Thanks

    The Classroom

    A place for all of our lovely new recruits, once they have started their enjoyable time at Tally Ho! to come together and ask questions etc. Hopefully some of us "old sweats" might be able to help from time to time

    What does everyone think of this?

    thought the officers dealt with it well though the guy dragged it out big time. part 1. part 2. part 3. and here's a video of him explaining in a little detail how he apparently gets around the whole inconvenience of playing by the rules. Where has this "freeman" effect come from and to what degree is there an element of truth in what they believe in? Until i had visited this site i had never heard of it and am surprised at how many times it crops up.

    University Campus... public place?

    For the purposes of the RTA and public order offences, is a university campus a public place? In particular student accomodation areas and recreation areas. Most campuses have gate security and require vehicles/persons to book in and have a pass allocated for the duration of their stay and students/staff must produce valid ID, although taxis and takeaway vehicles appear to be able to roam free. Does this still make it a public place? I ask because of the need to sometimes deal with drunken students, either side of the gates at the request of the campus security. Cheers, Andy
  12. I didn't really think this needed to go in News, despite the fact that the police are in the video. However mods, feel free to chuck it where you like! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-22599596 No seatbelt for the child, no car seat and he's smoking to top it all off. I hope Leicestershire Police gives him a visit. If he's prepared to act like that in front of am international news organisation, what does he act like behind closed doors?
  13. I was recently stopped on my way home from work and given a fixed penalty notice for not displaying an L plate on the rear of my bike. I have one displayed on the front and as far as i was aware i had one on the rear also. After i was stopped i immediately rectified the fault by purchasing a new set of plates, which i still have the receipt for. What can i do about it as i really dont want to have 3 points?. EDIT: I pointed out to the officer that i did have one fitted as indicated by the screws which remained in the number plate.

    Don't poke me, I'm driving!

    I've just come across these PDF's produced by IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) showing the effects of mobile phone, and particularly smart phone, usage whilst driving. There are some interesting comparisons to drink/drug driving in the documents, too. The summary is here: http://www.iam.org.u...udy-booklet.pdf The full research is here: http://www.iam.org.u...R592_secure.pdf

    Support for Police Officers

    PC David Rathband's Blue Lamp Foundation is a registered charity (1138319) that raises money to support personnel of the Emergency Services, including Ambulance crews who have been criminally injured whilst carrying out their duties. Police Constable David Rathband had the idea of starting this Foundation while lying in a hospital bed recovering from horrific injuries after being shot by Raoul Moat in the early hours of July 4 in Newcastle whilst on patrol. PC Rathband tragically passed away on the evening of Wednesday, 29th Februray 2012 at his home in Northumberland. In the weeks after the
