    reversing on the motorway? Illegal so they should have points on their license at the very least

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

      Queue control. Seen it done many times prior to the introduction of so-called 'smart motorways'. The end of a queue of busy fast moving traffic can travel very quickly back along a carriageway. The sight of blue lights were generally enough to slow or alert oncoming traffic so they used to run back along the shoulder to slow the approaching cars and had to keep pace with the back of the stationary vehicles. Very effective.

          This one is definitely the best from all of here! :O What kind of a car is that? Looks incredible - modern and old-school at the same time.

            Seen in countless movies and TV shows, the most iconic American police car in the '70s had to be the Dodge Monaco.

                The Ford Crown Victoria was a popular USA police car & taxi for many years, so much so that they were still made for a while after stopping private sales.

                  Mk1 Ford Consul/Granada's looked good in Police spec, also mk2 Escort's in that light blue with white doors.

                    I used to think that police cars were called panda cars because a lot of them were Fiat Pandas, but I suppose that it predates that.

                      Any by Ford to be honest looked cool I thought!1

                      Especially the Fiesta's - like on The Bill or Bigger ones like Grranada's or Sierra/Mondeos!!

                            Can't beat the classics. Love the old panda cars in pale blue with white doors. There were various models of car used, but all with the same colour scheme.

                              This one looks exactly the same as the police cars in the Police Academy (an awesome film shot in the 90s). In my opinion they were the best cars in terms of exterior ever

                                Vauxhall used to supply Thames TV with police cars for The Bill, usually Astras, although as "Sierra Oscar" was their call sign, one would have expected Ford Sierras? - I think they did eventually.
