    Cleveland Police have used unmarked cars for years - saw them nick somebody on the A19 last week. Never seen them use a motorhome though :Smile:

    could it be because most people break every little law they think is not meant for them, i.e. using the phone when driving, speeding, etc, etc.

    and as a lot of you may know from my previous post

    Humberside Police use a dark blue Ford Transit registration T894 JKH with a mini Gatso through a special split rear window.

    so be warned !!!
