POLICE! :(

Firstly i'm always polite with them as its not worth it when you get arsey!

SO - here goes.

I did nothing wrong.
I was aware they were there as i had already passed in other direction before going into supermarket and getting some lunch.

Came out... proceeded to the exit... turned left at the roundabout get near the layby and instantly... bang.. speed gun pointing at me!
i knew they were there so i was pootling along - that and i had my wife and son with me!

so i wasnt speeding, pc plods face was mr smug grin turned into disappointment as my car is loud that clearly means i must be doing 120 eh! FOOLS!

so i go to carry on past the layby then the twat jumps out infront of me - on foot (CLEVER THING TO DO) and tells me to pull into layby where i've virtually had to do an emergency stop!

he then proceeds to have a go at me for not being ready to stop!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS??? you jumped out in middle of road you idiot.

I look behind me and a volvo followed me out of supermarket - undercover car! wtf... REALLY ANY NEED?

So it goes along the lines of me saying why? what have i done? i wasnt speeding etc.
I get the stock answer.. is this your car, how old are you, blah blah blah. i'm 33 you nob! do i look 18 with my greying hair you pleb!

they then check all tyres. 'you'll find they are all legal officer'
reg check please... 'you'll find it's insured, taxed and MOT'd officer.
breathalyser... 'you'll find that i'm not stupid officer!'
so they carry on digging at car whilst i'm standing at side of road and numerous other cars go hurtling by pointing laughing etc.

eventually, i get a vehicle defect report for number plate. theres nothing wrong with my plates other than it's at a angle due to the EPR bumper i have that has no where else to mount it.

Apparently the only reason i'd have my number plate like that is to evade speed cameras!

so... i must ask you mr officer, did it really need you and 5 of your fellow colleagues to harass me.

would you have stopped me if i was in one of my other 2 cars.
I even told you that the car was weekend toy that sees the roads once a fortnight max!

very frustrating that they assume i'm a yobo as i choose and can afford a weekend toy.

OH YEAH.... last thing... you even took a photo of my car for your wall of fame, you should have asked mate, I would have let you stand beside it and took the photo for you buddy! C0CK!

Never had that treatment in the skyline but have had similar in my old M3, basically the same story, didn't speed or arse around, car was fully legal but got a warning for my canards saying they could cut a pedestrians leg of or cut a child in half!!!

Lodge a proper complaint mate. If you feel you have genuinely been unfairly harassed. They have to log the incident and investigate all complains. Could always contact the Independent Police Complaints Commission? Probably nothing will happen but at least you can waste their time like they wasted yours!

Thanks mate.
Generally I'm not one to complain, i'm a fairly easy going guy unless something really riles me but on this occasion it was the air of arrogance more than the fact they stopped me needlessly.

apparently i've been report ed to the dvla for the offence. WTF. lol

I know what you mean, I'm normally all for complaining but once I've ranted about it I normally let it be. However, what you have described is outrageous behaviour, it's knobs like that that alienate the police from the general public in the same way that chavy boy racers in shitbox cars give genuine car enthusiasts a bad name with the police.

my plates are even BSE marked with correct fonts etc. thats the annoying part.
you see so many people driving around that have frigged their plates to spell a name or moved the spacing or have nigh on illegible fonts...

you are correct though about the alienating! just needless time wasting on both parts and a waste of another tree and some ink!
the car has had legit MOT with plates where they are now.
never mind... bigger fish to fry.

I hope santa arrives with rudolph and that rudolph pisses on his pillow

So why did they actually stop you?.

They are not allowed to just stop you for no reason, they have to have a reason to stop you, they can't just spot check the car as they need a valid reason to stop you in the first place and they they are allowed to check the car.

I would write a complaint if they stopped you for nothing and then checked the car over as that's not allowed.

They can and will stop you at this time of year, too many retards drinking and driving but it's no excuse for singling you out.
Had a copper follow me yesterday and I expected a tug, had my young son in the car with me and he was getting worried after our last experience with the Traffic Division but the copper ****ed off.
I don't know why that 'some' have to act like total ******s??

I had trouble in the past they said it flagged up on there system as not insured after picking over the whole car they gave me a producer and let me go on my way now they must have checked it out over the radio because they let me go and if they didnt checknit out why pull me over.... and why make me go back to them with all my docs to prove it again?
It was my first dealing with the police ever and it left a bad impression i felt like they did it because they could
