    Slightly more useful than the "Noggy Blue S3 spotted on Audi forecourt" Spotters Forum

    i live in York and my best mate is a traffic cop, There is a white van on the A64 most weekends with two cameras on the fly over, with cop bikes and cars waiting in the next junction. He tells me this is to get people with out of date car tax mainly. But they will pull speeders up to.

    especially with the volvos - look through the rear/boot window and if you cant clearly see the windscreen without obstructions slap on the anchors! I saw a silver unmarked volvo with this and it was a cop!

    When i was in west wales,a while back,i nearly got caught by a unmarked black S6 est ,if it wasn't for somebody in a corsa cutting up the audi on a roundabout and the lights in the grille coming on i think i would have been caught.Nice car mind v8 type,i was in my Leon cupra and was trying to see if the driver would wind it up,but he was too smooth and stayed back,so i thought something wasn't right. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gifAndy

    On the M25 South Side they are using a distinctive mid green Saab 930 turbo, saw it last week hot on the tail of a Supra.

    Other tell tell signs, no dealer badges - even on the number plates, they do not always have two mirrors, and they sometimes have small rearward facing video camera's in the top left rear window, and are often single crewed.

    And they are always very clean.

    Do it our selves as we are not being heard. For your area, start off a post called 'SPOTTED : (your area)
    nice one.

    Lee, surely it would make sense to do it in the correct forum, instead of this one?

    Volvo T70 estate unmarked, dark blue A3 Tolworth
    Subaru Impreza, unmarked, blue Ewell, Surrey (guy was driving like a prat, 70mph in a 30, outside a school)
    BMW 5 series, debadged, unmarked, outside Harrods
    Honda Fireblade, unmarked with cameras between alton and basingstoke
    Also seen Skoda Octavias and even a X reg Vauxhall Carlton earlier this year ! I thought they'd retire them a long time ago. May be they've stashed them away somewhere??

    A few years ago I got pulled by a VW Vento VR6, I was maxing out a Mk2 Golf GTI 16v, managed to escape a ban...
