Thats a bit weird........... the ultimate sleeper i guess.. regards Michael

Ther has been a salmon pink Hyundai Excel running around the Central Coast for a while .... nothing to distinguish it from anything else from the outside .. the flashing light comes out and sticks on the roof ....

I guess if you got to drive one it must mean you failed your police driving course.

Or maybe Marge the local Nutrametics consultant has picked up a flashing light from Supercheap to allow her to deliver her prized goods to eagerly awaiting clients.

That could be it, Glenno.

I saw Marge's husband and one of his mates in their unfiorms taking orders from customers by the side of the road. Nice touch - Drive Through NutriMetics,

Hi Micheal,
Probably a tactical response car, often seen at Punchbowl and Greenacre when armed villans are about.

I saw a police GU in the eastern suburbs (sydney) a month or so ago with big wide (300mm) alloy running boards down each side and a alloy roof rack with a side tube. Suspect it may have been a trg vehicle as it could have carried 6 coppers down each side as well as the ones inside.

In WA they also have blacked out windows so you can't see the arrogant tossers inside!
Not normally rude about the police but the actions of some of these idiots driving police vehicles defies description.

Michael,
A few years ago I hade to fit out a new Jackaroo. It had roof bars, tow bar, side steps, bull and winch and driving lights. The fitting was done at a high security place in inner Sydney. When I asked what they were going to use the vehicle for I was told that it was an under-cover vehicle. They were going to put a surf board on the roof bars and take it to the beach areas to blend in.

Hi Michael, Saw a similar vehicle in WA on Marmion Ave around Iluka. White, Roofrack and Autotune HF ant on the rear. The guy that was booking the driver for speeding had a shirt and tie on and obviously plain clothes. Red & Blue light on the dash and flashing in the grill. First time I have seen it.....

Regards

Mark

Good to see all of our hard earned cash that we pay in fines being put to such good use. I'm glad they've fixed all the roads an eliminated crime...
Good for nothing Wankers....

I hope that you or your family are never in need of their services, Jeff. I'm pretty sure that they are like any other profession and there are more good than bad.

Cheers,

Hilly

Can't see my family ever needing a yellow sticker or a speeding fine for doing 4km over the speed limit. Calling the police is the last thing I would do to protect my family. I have security cameras, alarms, peper spray and a nice big steal rod next to my bed, bring it on!
Last time I called the police it was 4 hours before they turned up. Must have been a lot of people speeding that night, fat lot of good that's going to do my family when they need help.

hilly if you believe there are good people out there who want to don a uniform and get around with the general population scared s%^$#less off them in case they might get a fine for having an air freshner on their rear view mirror then you are dreaming I mean I really appreciated there services at 6am sun morning coming around and searching my house without a warrant looking for someone that wasnt there and have you ever tried calling them for assistance.i work at a public lesure centre and the only defence we have against the local indigineus population is the coppers coz we are not allowed to touch them coz it is the coppers job so your comments are a bit rich when they reply either we have noone available or we are not your private security agency any good blokes in uniform are shunted sideways and overlooked for promotion until they finally give up and leave. actually you are right now that i think about it they are just like any proffesion - that is try to go through your day at work doing as least as possible and try to knock off early

You guys are making the same broad sweeping statements that get such a strong reaction when we hear,

" All 4WDers are no brainers, tearing up the bush in their fuel guzzling machines with their bull bars that are designed to kill pedestrians on impact."

Are there some knob-ends in the job? You bet your free wheeling hubs, there are! Are they going to be the ones you hear about and tell others about?.... again, yep yep yep. But there are a heap of them who do a great job, and in my role as a firefighter, (vollie and proud of it!), I get to see those ones as well. They are out there.

Cheers,

Hilly

Hilly fair point, I am one that is always going on about stereo typing and here I am doing it and breaking my own rules!
But I guess you get burned enough times, you stop using the kettle!
I am one now who looks after myself and my family and friends, I do whatever it takes to make sure they are safe. It's sad that we have to go to great lengths and personal expense to ensure that we are safe, but let's face it, it only takes a handful of nitwits to ruin an emergancy call, and well I have personally experienced that handful over and over with the police force, and therefore will never rely on them for anything.

That's a fair call. No matter what we read or hear around the traps, the biggest impact on our lives is always going to be the things that actually happen to us. Here's hoping that the knobbers take up new careers and we end up with the police force that we can support.
