    I drove to work today and saw a middle aged woman alone in a huge SUV driving while talking on her cellphone. Won't someone think of the children and carbon credits? Where will it all end?

    Its a concept I have been considering for quite some time. The North Island is not going to be big enough. I was considering Australia. It will be on a three strikes type arrangement.

    Saw a cop driving on the ohone while putting his seatbelt on, whilest on the move... Was on Stewart Island though! 'archair critic' I will accept it if someone can coe up with a decent reason why they needed that many cars for bugger all officers. Dont get me wrng I have nothing against the police force in general but that incident just got my hackles up

    Perhaps they were not all sitting in station and were out and about then joined up whilst enroute? Then when the incident is sorted they don't have to go back to base to split up again

    Probably different units, from different stations, Traffic cars, first responders etc. Cop cars are one or two up, which means they have room to put offenders in the back seat if need be.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    They may have all been going to a serious incident, but each officer or pair and his vehicles are a unit, all units aviaviale, may respond to a serious incident, but they will be expected to be able to respond, to others as they need, this is very difficult, if they vehicle is else were,
    Many other industries do the same, ie power linesman, fire brigade, maintance crews, etc.
    you can not have flexibility, and rapid response, if everyone takes a bus,

    The back seat is for do-nuts and confiscated booze.
