Quote ITV Teletext:

"Just one in every 200 police officers caught on camera speeding or jumping red lights last year was punished, official figures have revealed.

From 90,480 offences captured on film, just 354 officers received fines or points on their licences - compared to 80% of ordinary motorists.

A quarter of cases were emergencies but the rest were quashed by senior police who can cancel tickets if justified."


I find this news scandalous, but, not surprising Rolling Eyes
Surely, the Police should set a good example and suffer severe punishment if found to be breaking the law, as opposed to being "let off"

Do as I say and not as I do springs to mind Evil or Very Mad
