Law above the law.

Just driven back from Brighton towards Lewes to find myself following 2 brand new police vans. Both of these vehicles were un-registered and without number plates. Also neither were diplaying trade plates. I was always lead to believe un taxed vehicles were uninsured (as they are un-registered they must be un-taxed)! How is this right? Why are they "above the law"?

The police self insure their vehicles and they don't have to pay road fund. Although they should still display a road fund licence. They could already be registered for the new 61 reg plates. They could have been criminals perhaps preparing for an IPO blag somewhere. Haha

ALL vehicles on public roads need to display a valid road fund licence! Without registration this is not possible. EBM if you are correct then why do they bother putting vehicle registration plates on any of there vehicles.

Guido...wrong on this occasion. Serco (Prison transport) do not display road tax discs and are exempt, i would expect any vehicle used by the home office and any other dept not to display them, the vehicles would be insured and mot'd. As previously said "get a life"

I'm sure you'd find Guido has a very fulfilling life and has a valid point, no-one should be above the law. Some of us were just trying to explain, some just want to turn it into a slanging match. You're fired!!

Lord Sugar - as you seem to know all about this subject, please explain to Guido why the particular police vehicles that he saw are allowed on public roads without number plates, which was the original question. Are we all allowed to do this or are the police above the law ?

Just a thought. Perhaps it was the supplier delivering the vans and they got a good nickin' when they turned up with them!!

First, this probably isnt the right area to post this. Sorry, but im desperate. You users seem to be proficient with computer related equipment. We have a credit card processing unit and everything was working well until we went from Cox cable to DSL. Our credit card unit now will NOT connect through ethernet..only dial up. We have checked our router that it is plugged into and the port is lit so we know its connected. All of our laptops connect to the internet all day long without issues .Anyone have any ideas!?!? Thanks in advance!

Actually, I would like to add to what I have written above. I understand your concerns about medical marijuana, especially if you... more
