    Do people still drive around without their seatbelt on these days.

    Plod thinks it's a policing priority apparently.

    Guess it could save lives so that has to be a priority?

    The flipside is if someone is so thick they hadnt worked out what the seatbelt did do they deserve to be "saved"

    You are right. No requirement to have two officers, in fact most traffic units are single crewed.

    Right again, any officer can signal for a vehicle to stop but the offence of failing to stop states the constable must be in uniform.

    No. Most RPU are single crewed. ANPR camera. Most RPU cars have one to rear and one in front window. Checking for everything really, mainly insurance and any intel markers placed on vehicles.

    The system will alert the officer of a hit therefore it does not take any operation. Activate it and let it work. The screen is also used for the car radio which needs very little operarion other than a PTT button or if your wanting to change channel

    Real question here.

    If its unmarked and the basic premise is to remain off the radar to a a degree, why plonk a massive ANPR camera on the roof to give it away :)

    Sadly it still doesnt get through to some people. Like shooting fish in a barrel on some days

    I dont know. I dont design the systems or the tech but usually the cars go unnoticed

    See a lot keep the belt fastened all the time and just hook it over them.

    Complete idiots. Argos driver did it the other day, and a BMW driver er the same.

    There is an exemption in law for delivery drivers but i think its only if next stop is within 50metres

    pretty sure you get fined more for not wearing a seatbelt than a speeding fine. if thats true, then thats a complete joke :lol:
