    Personal Vehicles

    So in my current job with my miserable pay rate I'm currently sharing a car with another family member. It's a new car on finance, stereotypical for young girls who have just passed their driving tests, I bloody hate it! With my plans of moving jobs into a police staff role, I'm looking into what car I'd possibly get since by the time I'm offered the job I won't have too much time, especially if I'm relocating. For my preferred location I'm looking at commutes from 45 minutes to an hour, mostly urban and motorway driving. I'm needing something substantial that won't drop dead once t

    New Vehicles

    Saw this on twitter the other day, and was wondering what people reckon. (Mods, know it's a news story, but it seemed to fit better here- feel free to move as appropriate). Not so bothered about where they're made, more interested in whether they're fit for purpose. Only ones we use are the Vivaro vans, which are pretty decent tbf- the 15 plate one that my station got recently feels more purpose built rather than having EWE and radio just bolted into the cab.

    Reg Plate Question

    Last week I saw a truck with the local area code JM, despite my searches I can't find any reference to which area J corresponds to. Can somebody here help?
  4. Apologies bit late in posting this, but great family day out tomorrow in SURREY. Just a quick heads up all that the Annual Brooklands Emergency Services day, Weybridge, SURREY will be 2nd May this year. It's the Bank Holiday Monday.The day comprises of lots of vehicles from the emergency services, both past and present. For an idea of what the day is like check out this video from previous event: http://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/index.php?/events/details/emergency-services-day4/ Hope to see you all there (in a civi capacity this year)
  5. 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
  6. I have noticed of late that there are a lot of old and badly maintained vehicles on the fleet. I have also noticed that there are a lot of new St John Ambulance vehicles which have been seen on priority runs. Other private ambulances have also been in abundance of late too. Am I missing something, or is Yorkshireland resigned to accepting this change in service provision permanently?

    Interesting Vans

    Hullo! so I've just driven to my parents along the M5 and couldn't help but notice some interesting vans on blue light runs on the way. There were five in total, one well ahead of a group of three, then another following a couple of miles behind. Each of the vans was a large, mostly white van with blue lights (on). The only markings consisted of red/fluorescent diagonal stripes on the back, and a horizontal strip of black and white battenburg (non-reflective) along the bonnet. Has anyone seen these before that would be in a position to tell me what they are? PM if you'd rather - I

  10. I thought this was interesting... Apparently a motorists insurance premium is lightly to increase after a no fault collision at a higher rate than after a fault collision When inquiring about this, apparently statistics back up the insurance companies. A driver who is at fault in a collision is more lightly to improve driving, therefore less lightly to be involved in another collision. Whereas a driver who is not at fault can believe his driving is good and not in need of improvement, and more lightly to be involved in another collision.

    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.
  13. Hi all! So I was strong-armed by my girlfriend last night into watching "Barely Legal Drivers" on BBC3 - here's a link if anyone hasn't seen it - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01rs1tz Apart from being appalled by some of the drivers (I'm sure some of you serving in the force have some stories about bad driving!) there was a clip where it showed the passengers in one car drinking bottles of beer whilst on the motorway. Now, I was always told (as a citizen) that it was illegal to have open containers of alcohol in the car but the programme never alluded to any wrong-doing. Is there any spe

    St John Ambulance Cadets

    Welcome to the St John Ambulance Cadets Topic... Share things about yourself and your division on the discussion... Feel free to start new discussions about uniform, duty's and anything else... This topic does has no association to St John Ambulance and anything said on this discussion is not the view or opinion of the Charitable Organisation St John Ambulance.
  17. There's a Panorama on tonight regarding response times. Be prepared for some tasty statistics! Here's an accompanying article for BBC News: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19455784 8:30pm, be there.
  18. It's good to see the topic (or should I say issue) of Specials and response training come to light in the latest edition of frontline as per edition 171 page 16. The reply from the Superintendent John in my opinion is weak and somewhat misses the point though. Firstly, the officer submitting the letter Mike Elkins makes reference to TPT/RPU officers only been given response training. Superintendent John in his reply states that he is not aware of Specials in RPU been trained in response - SC Elkins clearly didn't mean that. Secondly, I was under the impression that training I have received
  19. On my way back home the other night there was an Audi R8 behind me with only its daytime running lights on......Just wondering what the law is on this? Any offences committed and are they classed as side lights only!? They are bright but being LED's they don't project the light far, people can see him but surly he can't see the way properly in the dark? Anyone have ideas/opinions on this? Cheers!

    Red Diesel

    Right then, a bit of a daft question, which is why it's in Locker Room rather than anywhere else.... As we all know, apart from a small number of exceptions, it's illegal to run a vehicle on red diesel... However, it's legal to run a diesel generator on red diesel. Ignoring the fact that it would probably be really inefficient, would it be legal to run a totally electric vehicle fitted with a diesel generator (to keep the batteries topped up) with that generator running on red diesel? The law says that red diesel can't be used to power the vehicle, but would charging the batteries be classe
