  1. Pakistani Traffic cop arrests truck driver after a hit and run incident - YouTube

    Drink driving

    Hi, I’m still in my probation (Met), I had a notepad on my phone with the correct wording for requiring a specimen of breath for drink driving however i’ve somehow lost this. Can anyone please give me the wording required for requiring a specimen and for the arrest? I would appreciate it very much. I haven’t had to conduct a roadside test yet but i’m sure I will soon with everything going back to normal! Thanks very much.
  3. Not a situation that I've come across, but seen this on the Ask the Police website. I have always thought that you would have to hold a UK Driving Licence in order to supervise a learner driver 😯 Does anyone know where this is stated in legislation?
  4. Seen a lot of bike PCSO working in Soho in the last couple days and I've noticed they're wearing white traffic caps. Are they actually traffic trained and passed the exam? If anyone could shed some light, be really interesting to find out more and their role.

    Asylum seeker driving

    You stop a vehicle, which contains an asylum seeker. They produce a licence from their home country along with a UK provisional. They have been in the county since 2016 and were granted permanent residence in 2018. The vehicle is all in order. Is the asylum seeker/resident driving legally?
  6. Hi, if someone has a licence but is driving without third party insurance, would you also report them for driving otherwise than in accordance as well as no insurance or just for no insurance? I've heard differing stories. Much appreciated !

    New MOT rules

    For those who're unaware on Monday the MOT rules changed so that instead of just a fail the defects are now split into two categories major and dangerous. Does this have any change on the enforcement? For example a car presented early under the new rules fails on a dangerous defect, clearly it cannot be driven away from the station as it has been judged in a dangerous condition even if it has MOT remaining. However, the fact we now catagorise it dangerous doesn't mean it wasn't on the old rules and so should not really have been driven away. It is just a case that now it is far

    Vehicles With No Tax

    As it's so simple to check if a vehicle has tax nowadays, I'm wondering if there is a 'best' way of dealing with perpetrators? Is there a TOR for it?

    Vehicles Registered as SORN

    If a vehicle has a valid MOT and insurance, and the driver has a full licence, is there any offences for driving a motor vehicle on the public highway when it's registered as SORN and how should it be dealt with?

    GMP X Cars

    I've been thoroughly enjoying watching episodes of X cars from around 1997 on youtube, such as this: Quite incredible how different car crime is now, who remembers ringing? I haven't heard that term for years! The numbers of cars being stolen in Manchester at that time are utterly staggering. I guess modern immobilisers have slowly killed off kids nicking cars for a laugh. Love the patrol cars, Cavalier SRIs, Escort and Sierra Cosworths. Does any force drive anything remotely like that now?
  11. We've recently had a circulation going around reminding us of our responsibility to use our power to inspect vehicles that we seize for no insurance / otherwise in accordance / s59. Having emailed a few people I can't seem to get a straight answer from anybody. Usually when seizing a car I usually get the driver to show me all the compartments so I can note down what is being left. Does anyone know if there is an actual power that could be used in this instance and what do your forces have as standard practice for this?
  12. Can anyone recall what date we changed over to writing TORs (for the majority) as opposed to issuing FPNs? Also would anyone mind emailing me the powerpoints we all got sent? I had them on MSCO which has now gone, and I wanted to lift a few facts for an essay I'm writing. Thanks.
  13. My commute regularly takes me past through a trading estate, where they are building a new section and creating a new roundabout. The road works are controlled by temporary traffic lights and a contraflow on the main road, but there are 2 joining side roads which are not signal controlled. There are often long tailbacks (30 mins+ is not uncommon) My question is: I am in a line of traffic which proceeds on the green signal and the front car stops as the traffic lights turn red. A car from the queue behind, over takes the queuing traffic and joins in with the traffic already
  14. Two of our lads passed their Standard Response Motorcycle course today, a first for us in Kent, and wondering if across the UK? I'm aware there have been SC Solo's who had previously been regulars. In any case, massive congrats to the guys who worked really hard!

    A Little Bit Of Traffic

    Your rank: PC Your planned duty hours: 1300-2200 This is just a duty report from a shift recently where I managed to get a little bit of traffic in, nothing special but just fancied writing it up. 1300 - Was working on my SOLAP as I am still a probationer however a grade one call comes in of a female self harming with a knife. All early shift crews are tied up so me and another officer jump in together and respond to it. A local officer was nearby and arrived before us as he had knowledge of the female. Upon arrival her friend had taken the blade from her and the female was just sat
  16. 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

    Single Crewed Night Shift

    I've been operational as a full time PC for about five months, after having four months of training, and two years as a SC prior to joining up. I still love every day, I still look forward to going in and pulling on my stab vest, and it feels exactly like it did as a SC, except that I get a wage each month and I get a lot more point to point radio calls (either social or supervisory lol). Some people will say there's a lot more paperwork, there's a lot more to it etc. but I exposed myself to a lot as a special, so I guess I really did get a lot out of it which made the transition to regular ve
  18. Hi folks, I think I already know the answer to this one but wanted to put it out there for some advice. Just recently, I've noticed on a couple of occasions whilst off duty adults carrying a baby on their lap in the rear of a moving car. My thought was that the child should be restrained in a car seat, but as it's not something I've dealt with before I wasn't entirely sure whether this was the case. Would it be the driver that is reported for the offence, and if so what offence would it be?
  19. Things you'll never hear a Traffic Officer say......................
  20. Morning all, As a motorcyclist I do witness incredible amount of cases, when people are on their phones - talking, texting, updating facebook etc. I have seen people eating behind the wheel or checking emails on iPad while driving 60 mph. Nothing new, I know that but sometimes because they do not pay attention very dangerous situations happen. I do wear helmet camera and have good evidence there. My question is: is there any point of reporting things like that? I'm not saying that I encourage ignoring things, but does police follow up on reports supported by video? If there is minor offence I
  21. I'm aware of the disclaimer, but was wondering if anyone had any experience or knowledge of some of the offences that might be committed by sellers of the new Segway-type vehicles such as the Monorover R2. I'm happy with the offences that are committed by those using them on the road/footpath, but was looking at legitimate ways to stem the flow of the sale of these expensive but practically useless vehicles. I think there are offences under the Vehicle Registration and Excise Act 1994, most probably to do with the registration of vehicles and provision of the V5, but don't have much experience

    Traffic stop

    Ok, so you pull over a vehicle after seeing it do a bit of weaving. Not a lot, but you want to complete a breath test. The vehicle pulls over but the driver won't get out or open the window. He shows you Id and everything is in order with the vehicle etc. You make the requirement but they still won't open up. Given that a car is a premises under pace and therfore needs a power entry, how do you get the driver nicked for failing.
  23. Morning all, Had a look around and couldn't find anywhere suitable to really post this to ask the question... The below image has been floating around the net recently (primarily Facebook) and i am wonder what the legal stance is on it - is it correct or not?
