  1. So Much for Subtlety

    I am amazed they admitted it. I would think that the normal procedure is to deny, deny, deny.

  2. Some years ago, Princess Anne was done for speeding. She was asked why she didn’t stop straight away when she say flashing lights behind her. Apparently, she thought it was just a police escort…. Seems reasonable!

  3. Bloke in North Dorset

    I’ve met Princess Anne a few times in her role as C in C royal Signals. Having chatted to her security detail I’d be surprised if she only got stopped once. They reckoned she hel the record for Sailsbury to the back gate of Blandford camp, a well known race track at the time.

  4. Modern technology is putting an end to it.

    A friend of mine, a state policeman, told me that the days of police ignoring speed limits is over. People with smart phones vid speeding police, and report them. He said he knew of three officers suspended for speeding without lights/siren. People vid the cop and their own dash.

  5. Jeez Gamecock. You wouldn’t want to do that in the UK. They’d take that as de facto evidence you were using a phone whilst driving & nick you for the offense. Then confiscate the phone as containing material of a sensitive security nature. Ie the vid of the cop car. Then they’d really start on you.
