    ITV: Car Wars. Sergent using her phone whilst driving.

    Just started watching car wars on itv and couldn't believe it when the female sergent ( Julie) used her phone handheld to call hubby to tell him about the last job whilst driving back to the station.

    Thoughts?

    saw a cop driving out of Batley police station on Friday eating a sandwich.

    it was a radio. also you are allowed to use a phone in an emergency situation.

    Good luck with that.

    I had one ring me up who rang me up making several threats of arrest. Funny that when I complained the taped phone call went "missing" at their end lol Therefor no evidence other than the documented time, date, name & brief conversation notes I made in my diary. Still not enough evidence to charge the officer with abuse of authority.



    Funny that.

    I don't watch ITV.
    It's for the steerage class of the populous

    You can clearly see it's a mobile phone and it wasn't an emergency situation. She was returning to the station and simply phoned hubby to tell him about her last job.

    No emergency and nothing that couldn't of waited another couple of minutes until she had parked up.

    How old was the programme? Is it possible that it was shot before it became illegal?

    A law is a law

    She wasn't wearing her seatbelt either , and that was on public roads. 1 rule for us and 1 rule for them.

    She's been let off with "advice and a fine"

    ''Northumbria Police said the incident is not a criminal offence as the officer was on a police access road to a police station and in the police staff area of the car park.''

    Therefore the officer involved was not handed any penalty points or a fine by the force.
    She has however made a contribution to Brake road safety charity for the amount of a fixed penalty notice.

    The law

    The law doesn't state whilst on a public road. The Police are misinterpreting the law to protect one of their own.

    More worrying to me is not the fact that she used the phone while driving, but the stupidity of doing it when she knew she would be seen doing it by millions of people.

    I just can't seem to process it still. She was with a camera TV crew filming for a new show at a prime hour on one of the major broadcasters. In what possible realm did it cross her mind to do it? I honestly can't make sense of it.

    Unrelated and old but understood
    I'm not against the law (in general) my main issue is with justice/punishment. That said on this story even an apology is too little to late. The damage has been done.

    And as for the actual topic of this thread and the police officer caught, not once but two times on ITV cameras driving whilst using her mobile should be fined and should receive those points. Nothing less will be acceptable.

    Northumbria Police must enforce the law otherwise they'll continue to prove there is one law for them and one law for us

    My point exactly. ( only you made it a lot better than me ).

    The arrogance of her to even dream of doing such a thing beggars belief.

    Her superiors really need to rethink their stance on this to avoid leaving themselves open to all sorts of allegations.
