  1. Currently on but either transport/storage or areal degraded or I'm mounted wrongly (not my choice of 'aim) but I get a few things but not much.
  2. Personaly I usualy have the right kind of attitude - drive upto the ignorant 'learned driver' and make him/her/it move for me. Especialy when someone comes down hill as you are just entering uphill - then sit there seemingly brainlessly while they have not got a clue! As stated in the Highway code http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk/12.htm "133: Single-track roads. These are only wide enough for one vehicle. They may have special passing places. If you see a vehicle coming towards you, or the driver behind wants to overtake, pull into a passing place on your left, or wait opposite a passing place on your right. Give way to vehicles coming uphill whenever you can. If necessary, reverse until you reach a passing place to let the other vehicle pass."
  3. So the two 'people' wearing police outfits on Chesterfield Road near Meadowhead (the road boardering Graves park as you come from Morrisons up the hill) anout 4-6 weeks ago were NOT police officers even though they were wearing Police uniforms with the shoulder numbers? They were just Chimpanzees in disguise? Then again some may not know the difference.
  4. If either are like Shallow Hal stylie pants I think I'll puke. j/k
  5. http://www.sheffield.gov.uk/in-your-area/crime-reduction/cctv >> Objectives of the system >> to help with traffic management and to deliver the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) Initiative which checks vehicles suspected of involvement in criminal activity I'm not sure if this means it's already implimented though.
  6. Nope it's been around for a while - you know the Volvo cop cars? The ones on 'Police Stop!' where they record idiots et al? They have it but I don't think any other type do.
  7. Agreed - most Volvo cop cars have ANPR and can check out the car in seconds for tax, MOT and insurance (plus other things IIRC) and even if not most others radio through when they get a feeling, on a whim, bored. Not woth the 6 penalty points and fine and your insurance going from £1000 to a guess-timated £2500+
  8. I may be wrong about that but I do know that whatever they are used for it's probable to be able to link them into the ANPR system.
  9. I usualy ask as it's curtosy of nothing else - such as it's curteous to help a lady with a pram X people in front then resume your original space afterwards.
  10. Agreed ex Stannington but was driven into almost insanity by some 'neighbours' ('kids' and the lower tennant on a maisonette) Most were great but...
  11. As a few have said and I will say - the system is good as long as valid and accurate data is exchanged. I will assume the ANPR cameras on penistone road - both towards town 1) where Morisons pull-off is and also 2) about the 1'st or second street lamp after the speed camera (or after the junction - they are around there) These 'should' help instead of having a Mobile T5 waiting in the wings slowly getting bored and calliong not chasing...
  12. IIRC it takes a few seconds to scan the registration plate and OCR - relay and get ALL available data. It can flag anything from no (new) MOT or insurance (Motor Insurance Database - shared with the police) so in both cases a HO/RT1 aka Producer is issued unless it's able to be cleared about the time of any 'pull' If the registered owner is wanted there is a flag for this - stolen - VED/Road Tax? the same. In essence 'anything digital do not rule it out' If the RO has a warrant for his/her arrest you possibly would get stoped for that either T5 (Volvo ANPR (Automatic NumberPlate Reader)) or a regular either Mondeo/Peugeo radio check (which means they are bored or have something suspect on you/car (eg faulty brake light).
  13. I've just purchased a hand-held (well I say that but with the d*mn size of it it's probably pre WW2) and an in-car version which is brand new. I was wondering if any one here was still into CB's and could give tips on the lingo - I did a little research prior and got Q and 10 codes, but anything I will need? Hints, tips or notes-taped-to-bricks-at-back-of-head - anything could be welcome. Thanks in advance all. VVM
  14. I always advised people eating McRoadkill to eat the packaging for the better taste an nutritional values myself.
  15. Just likke London road or Chesterfield road lead TO those towns (if you follow in the right direction in any case)
