Escort of a big Oxygen tank

Figured you lot would like this, note the steady burn blue on some of the Police vehicles - this proves to Traffic cameras the vehicle was on an assignment/call, so if they go through red lights or speed cameras etc

Also, some genius in the comments said they should have taken the Oxygen out first to lighten the load (brilliant)

Yes they should have filled it with helium to make it lighter, or maybe laughing gas so we can all get a chuckle out of it as it drives by!

Kind of, they have Police support staff that, usually in regards to the vehicle fleet, have to sift through the automatic camera tickets (you either get pulled over, or caught by camera, which sends a ticket to your address instead of court) to justify why the vehicle was speeding or running red lights. They added steady burn, because sometimes the camera would snap the photo between lightbar pattern flashes (even LED ones)

It's waived when the support team confirm the vehicle was on a call.

I mean we have traffic cams here but they don't write tickets to other officers... Lol.. matter of fact my state outlawed them. Because the companies that were installing/ monitoring were not using sworn officers to send the citations and weren't even in this state

My understanding on it, is it's all automatically linked, so it's unbiased between Emergency services and the public. Plus the way vehicle registration and insurance works here is quite different to the US, so the ticket goes to the registered owner/address regardless of whether or not they were driving at the time. (We have quite a "duplicate plate" criminality element here, where crooks will find an identical vehicle to one they've stolen, and steal the plates, so without checking the VIN it appears legitimate.)

Oh that's a point too, unlike in the US, where you can lend your buddy a vehicle, in the UK if you intend to drive someone else's vehicle, you either need to be named on the vehicle or have your own fully comp third party insurance.

With regards to the Police getting caught by the cameras,I believe the support staff can trace the Officers driving, and check if they were actually on a call or not.
