Just a heads up for anyone in the area.

I got 'buzzed' by an unmarked dark (black or blue) Seat Leon a week last Friday on the M20 near Maidstone.

I was sat behind some moron who wanted to occupy the outside lane for no reason at 60mph. When they eventually moved over I gave it a bootfull before pulling from L3 into L1.
I was probably doing around between .95 and 1.1 leptons at the time.

The car drew up in front of me in L2 and lit up their blues in the back window before pulling into L1 in front of me and reducing speed to 70mph.

Didn't pull me over though and exited at the next junction. Squeeky bum time but obviously just a warning from a pro-active police officer.

This morning on the M20 at Wrotham Hill at the scene of the crash, an Audi A5, unmarked and with mis-spaced reg. no. but pretty sure it was BiB.

Plate S60 GN or similar.

Just watch out for numberplates starting with GN. I can bet that 9/10 Police Cars in the area are GN. They've got an undercover Astra VXR, Leon Cupra, Jap XKR. Marked RS6 Estate, X5 and a whole lot of other cars. Nice to know where our tax goes.

I was overtaken by the undercover XKR the other day. He got to the front of the queue and turned his lights off straight away. Looked cool though, was a total surprise when I saw what it was hehe

Bloody thing followed me home tonight, lucky for me I have seen it around the Blue Bell Hill area before so I played it safe.

I don't think these are all unmarked traffic cars. They might be Kent Police, at a guess they are SO cars.

I was told (10years ago) by a Kent lady traffic officer that they only had 7 dedicated traffic cars, with only 3 or 4 out at any one time covering the whole of Kent, so if you got caught, you were very unlucky.

If you get caught you aren't paying attention.

It's very very easy not to get caught by marked or unmarked cars if you switch on.

Very very easy not to get caught by the marked rs6....
