IT'S...

COMIC RELIEF!!


On this stupendous day we are all acutely aware of the less fortunate.

I have instead decided to concentrate on the decidedly more fortunate. I know that the public at large will be delighted to hear that PC Mark Milton has finally been acquitted of dangerous driving for hooning up the motorway at a whopping 159mph. It has taken two years, and I think we all agree that the hours of court and prosecution time have been worth it.

Those of you who are horrified at this result, as I am, may console yourselves with the knowledge that this is a case in point that judges are mad. I mean really, it is a travesty to suggest that someone's advanced driver training could make the blindest bit of difference to their safety on the road. We all know that the police just run these training courses as an administrative exercise.

As for those of you wondering why PC Milton was not just charged with speeding, and instead a great deal of time and expense was decanted trying to stick him on for one of the hardest offences to prove (especially where no accident has resulted), you really are missing the point of the Criminal Justice System. It should be obvious to anybody that driving really really fast is pathetically stupid no matter who you are.

April 1982, Sleepy town in New Zealand - well loved nurse killed by speeding drunk driver while she was driving to visit a patient about 9.30am. Her 17 yr old daughter was with her in the vechile, and although seriously injured, tried to resucitate her mother. Sadly instead she had to listen to her die. The drunk sped off and and was eventually found at his home - acting like nothing at all had happened. The daughter went to hospital - the nurses other 5 childen never saw her again - well except for the day of the funeral that was - I couldnt go - see I was still in hospital fighting to live!!!! I am the daughter and the nurse was my mother and I dont care whether its a Police Officer/Magistrate/boy racer or some woman off to tescos - if you speed you ruin lives forever but at least have the balls to own what youve done!!!!!! I feel like ive just hijacked your comment section - sorry about that but the law is the law is the law and if you break it you should admit it - especially if your trying to enforce it!!!! That guy obviously doesnt understand that.

Hooning?

Sympathy and understanding for Sue, but who is doing the driving and why makes a difference. Or should ambulances, women in labour, and fire trucks stick to the limit?

On this case, the question is what offence should he be found guilty of. Speeding, certainly. He had no necessity or reason to be driving so quiclky. This "familiarisation" is nonsense, if he'd told his Sergeant he wanted to wind the car out then he wouldn't have been stopped.

He was charged with dangerous driving, though. To prove that, as I understand it, the Crown had to prove that there was actual danger from his driving and they couldn't. He was just going really quickly. If the element isn't proven, he's acquitted.

I hope the drunk that killed your mother and hurt you is too dead to drive again.

He could not justify his driving. Simple end of story.
If he had been carrying out a pursuit, responding to an emergency then he was acting lawfully. No problem.
What next eh armed officers honing there skills on the local chav low life?

Sorry to hear about what happened in NZ, but that was a drunk driver.
There are several issues here. The Police can speed if it is necessary. The CPS obviously decided that it was necessary for the PC to speed, while testing the car, or he would have been summonsed for that instead.
He was summonsed for dangerous driving, but speed in itself is not necessarily dangerous. 150 mph, in the dry on a motorway at when it is quiet is probably less dangerous than 70 past a school when the children are turning out.
Unfortunately speed cameras are a good source of income and a good many otherwise law abiding drivers have been fined and had points awarded for being just over the speed limit and that is where the public resentment comes from.

Blueknight your point about the driver being drunk, I take. I did get a tad over emotional while writing lol..but back to the speeding copper - If he was testing a car, hence the speeding, could the 'testing' not then be done on a disused runway or similar. Just a thought!!

I'm with PC Milton.
I'm disappointed with you Bloggs.

Yep I agree, I’m with Milton here.

I have been in his ‘boots’ in a previous life. I was an ARV driver for about 7 years where we were given various vehicles to test out during the early hours by our transport department. Theses vehicles were past from Division to Division over a period of weeks with an A4 book with a list of things to comment on, such braking at high speed, suspension, acceleration, etc etc …there were pages of the stuff to comment on, and yes we drove those vehicles extremely fast, but safely.

On my advanced driving course I often drove on motorways at 150mph. Is it dangerous? Of course it isn’t, for an advance Police driver. But to everyone else it is, why? Well because it sounds dangerous. That’s the difference.

I’m a bit surprised with this thread as well.

I cannot speak from a position of experience because I was not an advanced driver. I should imagine that a certain amount of training on an off road circuit,(not necessarily a straight run on an airstrip,) would have some benefits, but I the Force would have to pay for the use of it. I am not sure but I believe that the original Court case 'discovered' that there was mo guidance on the subject of testing the cars on the road and the Pc thought he could. If he knew he could not then I am sure he would not have done so. My thought is that anyone who has a particular skill need to keep practising it.

Hands up those of you who would like a personal sarcasm alert sent to their inbox on the relevant day.

Blogger Sergeant Simon said...

I'm not convinced by his argument about practicing his skills, for the simple reason he was in the car alone. I'm an advanced driver etc and a driving assessor, but I need someone else to assess me. I can't do it myself. I'd pass myself the whole time.

Now I don't think he deserves a criminal record and conviction, but at the same time he was pretty damn stupid, especially the (alleged) 90 in the 30mph zone. He should've left the "performance testing" on the motorway.

We didn't hear the final result on what he thought of the vectra, either.....

What really should annoy you all is the huge, REALLY HUGE, amount of your federation money that has been spent on this officers defence. He will probably happily live with that as he probably has by now convinced himself he was in the right (and wasn't just boosting his ego when he could have been doing some police work). For all your sarcasm Bloggs, he was in the wrong. There's a time and a place for vehicle testing. He should have been dealt with in house and his pathetic supervisors and the CPS should never have escalated it to this level. Hang on - now I'm arguing against myself! Why is this job and the legal system so messed up?

Bloggs, your normal common sense seems to have deserted you in this case. Of course training makes a difference!

If you have had proper advanced Area Car, or Traffic, driving training you must be aware of that.

The problem is never speed on it’s own. It’s always an appropriate speed for the conditions, vehicle and competence of the driver.

I know you were trying to be clever with the sarcasm thing, but as an experienced bobby, I have to agree with anon on 20/03 when he/she says training makes a difference....it does! And I know so.
However, I have to disagree with anon on 19/03....I don't particularly think the job is messed up, although I have to say that sometimes the legal system is a wee bit silly.
I don't know about your nick, but at mine there seems to be a culture of 21 to 25 year old police officers with 2 or 3 years service who seem to be very wise about the job and spend most of their time moaning and complaining as though they had some police experience to speak of! Amazing!

Sorry if I missed the point.

Some of this clever sarcasm is just, well, too clever!

It would be interesting to know if PC Bloggs is a police driver though....
