Forgive me if this has been done before, but this phenomenon is puzzling me more and more, especially since I got my bike licence. What is this all about? In my rear view mirror, a bike cop heaves into view. But no! That beacon atop the pole is amber, not blue! Everything else however is very Mr Plod: Hi-Vis, white helmet (sans Polizei logo, obviously), chevrons all over + to cap it all, a "message board" on the back of the top box. Utterly bizarre. To the ignorant masses, this guy looks like a cop. But why would anyone go to these extremes to do a bit of filtering? The whole get-up makes the rider look a total fcuk-knuckle, and for what? Thanks. That's off my chest now. Can anyone answer me though. WHY????
