Quite a few unmarked vehicles to be seen in the photos of the coverage of the M6 Toll bus stop event.

I guess it's one way to keep them busy.

But I won't mention the awful piece of driving I witnessed by TV's PC Angus Nairn on the M5 today in a marked T6. hehe

If you insist! Constant tailgating at 80mph+ in heavy rain and low visibility (using no blue lights/sirens), then pulled across sharply from L3 to L1 causing a car in L2 to brake heavily, to slot into a small gap between two HGV's, presumably to exit the M5 at junction 1.

But I'm sure there was a good reason for it. spin
I'm sure there was...!driving

Thanks, mate, that's a road I like to boot, as most pillocks want to tail gait you .
And I find best way is to show them a clean pair of heels .Certainly on the Griff island.
Thanks for the heads up

Can confirm the unmarked dark grey A6 Avant TDI with dog guard operating on the A45/M42 junction by the NEC.

Got a flash of the dashboard-mounted blue lights as I hooned past in my courtesy VW Polo while the regrettable estate was once again being tended to under warranty. I acknowledged and went to pull over but they took a look and sped on.

Long time lurker. First time poster, go gentle with me.

Spotted a red Audi A4 Avant TDi yesterday at the Shell station at Mill on the Soar near Broughton Astley with 2 police in it filling up. Reg was KV12**C. Apologies only got a partial reg.
