That an answer to me elf - not trying to trip you up - genuinely interested. the "yes sir" approach has always worked for me. Including being chased by a cop in a car for 3 miles - I was on a motorbike in a hurry in traffic and didn't even know he was chasing me full blues and twos Got away with that one
Just got breathalysed by the Rozzers
I got stopped years back driving a van late at night.
I spotted the police car behind me so kept an eye on my speed making sure not to give them an inch as I sailed through town in a 30mph zone.
I then went into a national speed limit zone so upped my speed but still kept at the legal limit. The police car went out of view i.e pulled off only to re appear minutes later all over my bumper with head lights on full tilt trying to get me to speed up to over the limit. They finally stuck on the blue lights, pulled me over and questioned me what speed I was doing.
I knew full well what speed I was doing at all times because of them insighting a reaction. So stated I was doing 30 in the 30 so why did they pull me?
"Well thats a sign of a drunk driver" i.e keeping to the speed limit!
Knob head reaction... How can you win with that?
He was dying to nick me and tried everything to get me to speed up to do so.
I have a few mates in the force.
But like any job there are people that shouldnt be front of house, plainly abusing power to innocent folk.
Your motorbike not have mirrors TJ or did you stay in one lane.
Down the centre of a busy road - nose to tail trafffic each way =he was so far behind I couldn't see him stuck in the jam
Hmm for the record I have no objection to being stopped, quite happy to assist in getting the enquiry over with quickly so we can both get on.
My only point was no matter what I have done to behave in this way in the past it is quite often met with bizarre aggression.
@Nonsense: You seem to be complaining about mass generalisation of the Police, and then you issue several paragraphs of your very own generalisations which come across as mildly arrogant. That's close to the kind of attitude I'm getting at.
I've no doubt many/most people encountered do not deserve respect or courtesy, and I'm not demanding it either if I'm honest, I'm just noting the curious absence of it. It's just about professionalism isn't it? Or am I being a tad old fashioned?
I'd get short shrift from my employer if I acted with such disregard for common courtesy and respect for random members of the public.
Tj can i refer you to your ever tedious contributions to threads such as this:
and i dunno pick another maybe this:
and then with a one of these you post this:

honestly man you are becoming a proper fool
glitchety bumpety thingy
Yeah, but you're concerning yourself quite a lot with someone who you consider to be a 'fool', so what does that make you?
have you just jumped out of his pocket?
Yes. I was quite cosy and warm actually, as it's velvet-lined.
thought as much do you get a pat on the head when you hiss at someone that shows him up to be full of s**t?
What on earth do you mean Nonk? I do not understand your point?
Waht point are you trying to make Nonk?
I think that motoring law needs to be far more robustly enforced and policed. If I break it I will accept whatever comes my way if caught. I do not try to pretend I never break it or have never.
Speaking politely to cops on that occasion meant I did not get prosecuted.
being chased for three miles ?
maybe start by handing in your licence then chap sounds like you are a danger to us all.
i did think you might just let this one go.
I've not read the whole of this thread but I've read most/bits. and I do think it should be published right now and posted in everyones door.EVERYONE.
