hourly rate>?? Laughing

no seriously, the police may be able to provide this, as it would provide drivers (male & female) with added security whilst driving.

say for instance a female driver is having some idiot giving her a little road rage, it would ease the drivers mind if they could simply navigate to the nearest secure area.

just a thought Smile

Cheers

It is a good idea but a big task. Collating data for each and very police station across all the force areas is no mean feat never mind annotating those stations that are not open 24/7 etc!

Best advice is to dial 999 if have any concerns. That does not apply to the mindless idiots who call the emergency services when they have a headache or need a lift home Evil or Very Mad

Navman SmartST V2 has moved navman from Navtech to TeleAtlas maps, i.e. the same as TomTom. This now includes emergency POI's for police stations. :D

Typically, no police stations are listed for the UK, but they have included 9 for Andorra Crying or Very sad
