A good deterent to people driving like twats, or even just not paying full attention to driving, is to bring back the much maligned Droid/ Black Rat dyed in the wool, not really interested in anything else, shouldn't they be out catching burglars/ rapists/murderers Traffic Officer.

A bigger fleet of Traffic Cars, with the no nonsense officer within, stopping anything that moves that either isn't complying with the law or looks like it might be a bit ropey and not taking any shit from the driver.

Everyone who gets ticketed by them hates them with a passion but, look at the reaction of drivers who spot something that might be Old Bill.

When I head along the M4 towards or home from a game, every Highways Traffic Officer (Motorway PCSO) vehicle I see is preceeded by three lanes of brake lights on approaching vehicles.

Driving standards have decreased as the number of cops dedicated to roads policing has also dropped.

Do they, my only involvement with the old bill driving was once getting done by a camera, entirely my fault and entirely preventable if I had been not speeding (37 in a 30).

Second time was years back when I was pulled over for a dirty numberplate on the A40 at about 11.45 on a Friday night, it was obvious that the main reason for the pull was to see if I had been drinking, I hadn't so after a brief chat and him giving me a tissue to wipe numberplate off I popped.

Do what they do here. Minor driving offences and parking offences the police take off your number plates for a period of time - usually 60 days. No fine, just major inconvenience.

Assume that means you can't technically use your vehicle in that case? Or if you do and you are caught driving without plates you get something more serious?
