    It's more to do with economical impact and petrol prices, rather than actual size of the roadways. Lorries are allowed to go pretty much anywhere unless restricted by road tonnage limits. A lot of our goods/emergency vehicles, are shaped the way they are, not so much to fit in the roadways...

    It's mostly down to the Fleet managers to allocate a variety of vehicles for tasking, within certain budgeting confines. Also probably a few contracts with manufacturers that mean they get a better deal. As for the airhorn, I agree, but it's not really something we use a whole lot in the UK.

    Actually, the sequel to the "Met Sound" siren is in use with quite a few Londonish/South East forces (Essex, City of London) in the form of Stirling SS2H4 siren boxes (I used to have one). British Transport Police used to use them too. As for the Met, it's usually budget lighting and vehicles...

    Not many police forces still use two tone horns (some Welsh ones do and Greater Manchester are still going strong), there has been a lot of speculation in the UK EV spotting world over the high pitched siren - we mostly reckon it's a Premier Hazard of some form (the piercer and hi-lo tones are...

    I actually really like the light setup on these vehicles, and I dunno what was going on, but if there's 9 vehicles responding, someone done messed up big time.
