I know that they say that you are getting old when the coppers start looking young....but hey I'm starting to knock on a bit. My gripe is that the civil police seem to be placing themselves above the law when it comes to enforcing it. It's just simple things that grip me. How often have you seen a police car illegally parked when not on an emergency call? Around here, the Met are just terrible for it. Bus stops, Yellow lines, Disabled bays....you name it. Now I have no issues with them sticking the car wherever they have to when they are responding to a 999 call, but so they can nip to the shops or have lunch? If I do it I get a ticket, but they think they can do it as it has "POLICE" on the side of the car. I regularly see police cars travelling above the legal limit with no blue lights or sirens. Why? Surely if they are on a call then to speed they should have to have the blues and twos on, if not then don't speed. As I said, it's just little things, but these people are here to enforce the law, and as such they should set the example. Or am I just being unreasonable? Can't they smarten up a bit too? You know, the odd shave or two and perhaps rolling their shirt sleeves up properly and not just be extra scruffy. Lazy bunch of arrses.
