Re : Vic
I was pulled for overtaking a Police car doing 20mph in a 30mph limit.
30mph limits are generally residential. Whilst overtaking possibilities exist, they are necessarily limited. The police car doing 20mph is a bit of a giveaway that *he* believes visibility to be limited.
No it is because they wanted to pull someone, no houses, 4 lane road
Then you get grilled for half hour, why did you overtake, what were you doing
If the police driver was correct in his assessment - and many of them are P1s, so that's a reasonable assumption - then he saw you performing a dangerous overtake in a situation where visibility was so restricted as to cause him to drive slowly. I should say you got off lightly.
Rubbish it was a 4 lane road and I was in the right hand lane on our side, he was going slowly to get people to overtake.
Harrasment I think.
Actually, it sounds to me like a copper doing his job. Why do you consider your opinion of the safe speed for that situation to be more appropriate that a professional driver with much more training and experience than you've got?
My opinion was 4 lane road, little traffic, no houses backing on to it, 30mph limit, 20mph is taking the piss.
Actually they were not traffic and traffic I found later didn't like them. Just 2 cops in a car pissing off people.
