I don't suppose he'd care to provide a statement under oath as to his speed, as part of his half-arsed entitled complaint, obviously?

Have you tried Breitbart?

He seems to not understand the difference bwteen breaking the law and not following guidelines. Seeing as how they weren5 trying to enforce anything the worst they did was not do as they had been told.

It appears the police don’t either.

It fails to say what law they allegedly broke. Oh, I know, it's the one that so many OP's on the speeding forum allege when the police "hide" behind the bushes with their speed gun. In other words, no law was broken.

I don't think that's very fair, all they are trying to do is slow down drivers and help prevent accidents. If the plod are not able to slow the speeders down then its down to others to try.

Pick the bones out of this.

The best part is "I drove back to ask them what they were doing and whether they had permission", last time I checked there's no need for anyone's permission to sit in a car holding a speed gun providing the car is legally parked and the keys are not in the ignition. Maybe someone should tell him that?

I’m really impessed by Mr Higgins for the following reasons.

He can walk at 20 mph....is he in the GB squad for the next Olympics? Or maybe WADA need to investigate?
He admits driving at over the speed limit towards where his children go to school....... what fantastic judgement he has....

What a tosser.......

Would that he has admitted rather publically breaking the speed limit, backed by records that the volunteers would have, mean that the police could prosecute?

It does sort off remind me of being pulled by Panda cars and the cop asking what speed was I doing.... Uhm.... rather not say smile.gif

Doubtful but not impossible.

His admission, although public, isn’t under caution.

The reading obtained by the CSW could be admissible but under cross examination by a defence solicitor their evidence may not stand up to scrutiny.

Why no keys?

Assuming because people have been prosecuted for using their mobile phone even with the engine off, but the keys have still been in the ignition. Stranger things have happened... such as the police being parked illegally and using a mobile camera device, which I have passed more than once... or basically if I was to park there, I'd get a ticket. So they may have permission, but who can tell?

Most TRO's do not create a restriction on police vehicles parked for police purposes, so usually neither illegal or a contravention (as usually it won'y be illegal anyway as the area will be decrim parking)

But there's no suggestion anyone was using a mobile phone ....
