Or dazzle the driver behind with your high-level brake light? ;)

Seems to be endemic nowadays, including the majority of Police vehicles I see stopped at traffic lights.

Re: Reg Local and speed...

Basically, I think he's Old School. Although how he came to join the Police is a sad tale, told elsewhere.
Old School is how it was with my Observer checker when I was an IAM Observer long ago. Class One local Traffic Officer.
That was the informal, not broadcast, true point of the IAM.

Re: New Members.

'Site still not really buzzing with contributions from new members.
Tbh, it's why I rarely contribute, knowing it's mainly the oldguard who say anything.
Tends to make me wonder whether AD is now of little consequence in our current world.

Re: 80mph on the motorway as bad as drink driving

OP, forget it, long ago I was suggesting that the IAM was becoming only interested in its survival and the jobs at HQ. This, of course, means following the dominant politics of the day.

Re: Good afternoon :)

Forgive me but I'm not quite understanding the OP's initial post. How does joining here improve skills for a current ES driver, presumably subject to regular checking of those skills and, of course, able to use exemptions to really demonstrate those skills? Sorry for the late reply, I wasn't saying...
