    imagine the two lads just sitting there eating their kit kats....... and boom.... the traffic unit will want to careful out along the naas road around baldonnell, i wonder would it work for gatzos..

    Two British traffic patrol officers from North Berwick were involved in an unusual incident, while checking for speeding motorists on the A-1 Great North Road .
    One of the officers (who are not named) used a hand-held radar device to check the speed of a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was surprised when the speed was recorded at over 300mph. The machine then stopped working and the officers were not able to reset it.
    The radar had in fact latched on to a NATO Tornado fighter jet over the North Sea , which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over the Border district.
    Back at police headquarters the chief constable fired off a stiff complaint to the RAF Liaison office.
    Back came the reply in true laconic RAF style. 'Thank you for your message, which allows us to complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Tornado had automatically locked on to your 'hostile radar equipment' and sent a jamming signal back to it. Furthermore, the Sidewinder Air-to-ground missiles aboard the fully-armed aircraft had also locked on to the target. Fortunately the Dutch pilot flying the Tornado responded to the missile status alert intelligently and was able to override the automatic protection system before the missile was launched'.

    Epic fail ...

    Plus, assuming they're talking about a NATO aircraft from the Dutch air force rather than a Dutch pilot in an RAF plane which would be both unlikely and irrelevant, the Dutch air force has never had Tornado's, only F-16's.

    I always wondered why the PSNI weren't called Northern Ireland Police Service... but then again I guess NIPS wouldn't be practical! :D

    Came across this blog from a Vancouver Police officer who walks the beat in the drug riddled and impoverished Downtown Eastside area of the City,very interesting reading and there's also a very good documentary about one of the area's best known cops.

    So in the video above it was hilighted you had a learner with no full licensed driver and an over weight truck, Both left carry on their way?

    Bit of a joke, suppose it goes with driving out of the test center once you fail..

    I can see the danger in allowing a frankly mad woman abandoned on a motorway with 5 kids versus allowing her to carry on with no licence.

    Lesser of the to evils I suppose.

    The kneeling on the side of the road had me in fits.

    FYI, if you move to a 'smart' meter electricity plan, you CAN'T move back to a non-smart plan.

    You don't have to take a 'smart' meter if you don't want one, opt-out is available.

    Buy drinks in 3L or bigger plastic bottles or glass bottles to avoid the DRS fee.
