  1. Hi Folks, Quick question I was watching a program recently in which a motorist was stopped due to an anpr hit for no insurance (the vehicle was high value) On stop the driver was asked if the vehicle was insured to which he replied no, but he was. He advised that he is self insured (depositing money with the Accountant General) and able to drive any motor vehicle with our without insurance held on it The stop was in the early hours of the morning and mid was not showing any details of insurance on the car, he also could not produce anything stating the above Does anyone know how it actually works or is it a myth? I didn't get a chance to see the ending
  2. Road Traffic Collisions - On Duty

    I had a similar discussion with a paramedic that I worked with on a shift, but it was about penalty points. If you drive to an incident on blues, hit a vehicle, deemed to be at fault, and get points on your personal licence (as you don't hold a "company" licence) should you be penalized on your personal licence for this? As in your normal day to day driving, you wouldn't be on blues or using exemptions. Also, from an insurance point of view on the topic at hand. It goes side by side with what i have said above, i dont think it should have to be declared as an accident to your personal insurance company. But the fact of it is, if you have an accident which is logged on the accident database, in your name. Then yes, you will have to declare this to your insurer. Of course, you can explain the circumstances involved to the insurer who will then seek guidance with the underwriter to see if the policy should be loaded with a premium or not, as they have the final say on clauses, terms, pricing etc.
  3. Police shoot 2 in woolwich

    With the comments regarding the sentries from the barracks turning up prior to the ARV, what force could they have applied in this instance? Would they turn up with their weapons, and if the need arise use them in the same way as ARV?
  4. MOP Thank You

    No police related but emergency care, I received a letter from the upper management in the ambulance service after a call i attended that resulted in a cardiac arrest patient being successfully discharged from hospital. The letter was sent as the family of the patient wrote in thanking me for my quick response and prompt actions during the resuscitation
  5. Driver trying to avoid breath test

    For option A, Has the driver committed an offence of failing to provide a specimen, as from reading the above, at the time of "walking off" the officer is currently waiting for another patrol to drop off a breathalyser? Maybe I have just read too deep into it?

    Found a couple of videos on youtube of M+L ambulance service (which is a company under the branching of UK Secure Ambulance Service)
  7. Echo: Special Constable on phone when she collided with biker

    Again, I need to press a button which enables voice activation on my parrot system. So for the purpose of the offence as I have had an interactive communication function ie. pressing a button. I would be committing an offence? So much for the advertisement about Bluetooth headsets or built in systems... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Echo: Special Constable on phone when she collided with biker

    So by using my mobile, through a bluetooth system, would i still be committing an offence as the phone is still in use?
  9. Would be better if the location in the headline was correct... Larkhall is in South Lanarkshire, 15 or so miles away from Glasgow! This is also still on-going so I've heard!
  10. Police Pursuit

    Is it just me that's concerned about the way the last male in the pursuit was handled? In the back of a van without a seatbelt, and from the officers own account "will be thrown around" while the car was travelling. Now at that point, from a medical view, I'm thinking there's an MOI for a spinal injury, and also the fact he presented unresponsive when the doors where opened. He gets dragged out like a sack, with no effort to hold his neck straight or his spine, from what I saw they allowed the spine to bend! Then it was checked to see if he was breathing and has a pulse? At no point was a proper ABC assessment done to the person. Apologies for taking this off topic, just want to hear others views on it?
  11. Not good at all. RIP Not a nice call to take
