More than 4,000 drivers in England have been caught committing offences
over the last two years, following a special operation using a lorry,
police say.

Since April 2015, officers from 28 forces have used an unmarked lorry to
film examples of dangerous driving.

eating lunch and using his mobile phone.*

I'm amazed it was that low.

Yeah, I've heard about that. Seems like a very good idea to me.


The police are claiming they're short staffed, yet they waste time
pestering drivers instead of solving real crimes. Would you rather
they stop a murderer or a burglar, or someone who might possibly be
doing something that will maybe cause a dent in someone's bumper in
the future?

Do you believe the police can predict the future?
