- Local plod in my face!
I know that this will be a difficult thi g to grasp before researching and from my experience I have been caught out by engaging in communication by entering as they see it a conversation. Now this is the tricky bit to get your head around,,,
You need ‘t had responded to him especially since having replied to his oi you gesture and statements.
I got caught out recently by an assuming PC who tried to get me to respond to her assumptions to suit the answer she was desperately looking for, for a quick arrest but actually turned into me entering a conversation by saying after asked once, my name.
In the future however if I am not caught of guard for something I am unaware of then I will not utter my name even a hello to any questions or gestures to an officer.
Idpcc are your main point of call if you deem the complaint of incompetent policing as they are working to aid the majority of public. But as we know for long time, they are the servants of the revenue collection service for central govt.
Shame on them.
If there’s one thing to remember, that it is almost 100% always best not to say a damn word when posed with a question directly by a PC.
Good day to you!Posted 5 years ago
“sorry officer, they must’ve changed the markings on the carpark since I was here.”
“I see. honest mistake. Don’t do it again”
conversation over. Guess you had to be there eh?!
Edit: aye, stick a google streetview link up. I’d be interested in this one as I sometimes work in a supermarket carpark.Posted 5 years agobeagleMember
As far as I’m concerned it’s directional signage ‘exit/no entry’ placed by the store
or owners of the car park. From what I understand, it was requested as all the parents would park there at school kicking out time and havoc ensued with reversing 4x4s going in both directions through a car park which can hold 20-25 cars tops.
The sign isn’t one in the highway code, if that helps.

Onceinalifetime…..be careful with the stance of ignoring a copper who is asking you questions, they can make life very difficult for you if you want to act the clever dick.
I saw a lad try this exact thing, in the end he was arrested and taken to the station so they could verify his identification…..remember kids you can be arrested simply on suspicion of an offence and a wily old copper will usually succeed in inconveniencing you far more than the other way round.
From your original post it appears you failed the attitude test, rather than a cheery “sorry officer I had no idea” and defusing the situation you tried to argue your point (rightly or wrongly) and this almost always ends badly.
I’ve got away with all sorts of stuff involving the Police (nothing serious admittedly) by simply being courteous.Posted 5 years agoandymc06Member
Onceinalifetime does your name refer to the frequency with which you post good advice?
Refuse to speak to a copper who may have reasonable suspicion of an offence and you can look forward to wasting several hours at the local station.
Copper does sound like a tool in this case but we have but one side of the story……..Posted 5 years agoonceinalifetimeMember
andymc lol completely incorrect judgement as you do not know at the time of the PC trying to Q me and accuse me when her colleague was not present for a few mins prior to her joining in to watch over the questioning.
Maybe that’s because you were not physically located where I was at the time! Simples!Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

I struggle with long sentences
Co-Op carpark, private property.
It’s a civil matter not criminal. Plods being a nob. They must be human too.
RTA applies in public car parks, private property not relevant.
Policeman sounds like a knob though. But legality or not, driving against the directed flow of traffic just isn’t a great idea.Posted 5 years ago
