    Just a warning in case any of you guys are likely to use this road.

    A170 Thirsk - Scarborough in Sutton Bank/Helmsley area.

    Apparently the police are using an unmarked Subaru Impreza - silver body
    with gold wheels - with full body kit, etc, trying to goad people into
    having a race with them and then pulling them for speeding!

    A chap from work saw it last weekend with a couple of bikers being given
    tickets for something or other by them at the roadside.

    Sneaky fuckers!

    Let's see the evidence of goading into racing, then.
    Had they been goaded?
    I'd agree with you if you could back up your assertion.

    How are they goading? If a car revs it's engine, drives faster than the
    normal ebb and flow, has a body kit, or is a subaru impreza, is that

    The thought occurs that a couple of riders saw a subaru, thought "I'll
    have him" and tried to show off.

    Not my assertion. I have no evidence other than what a chap at work said he
    saw at the weekend. Just letting folks know in case it is true. :eek:)

    That car sometimes does the same with boy racers in Scarborough heh. I
    couldn't comment on the goading though.

    And there's some evidence of them goadng drivers/riders is there, or is this
    just an assumption?
    Must be Plod to blame then eh?
    You say that like it's a new thing, but Plod have always had unmarked and
    fast (for their day) cars.

    True. But sometimes it's nice to know exactly which.

    Not me. Not with Subarus anyway[1]. TVRs always seem good for a
    play[2] though, and are usually very well driven, IMO.

    [1] Seem to be driven by chavvy rally driver wannabes, mostly.
    [2] That was originally typed "platy". I nearly left it like that.

    Untill recently the plod in North Herts. used to use a silver Mercedes 320
    with a GB sticker on the back for the same trick.
    Haven't seen it lately 'though, mind you is was "02" reg so it's probably a
    minicab somewhere now.
