Tooo fast

I am far more concerned about the 91mph this officer reached in the 30mph limit on his way the M54. Where he felt the need to see how fast the vectra went rather that ask Vauxhall.

There wouldn't have been much left of Jonny staggering home after a few beers not looking for something travelling at 130 feet per second. Scraping poor Jonny down the road for 350 feet whilst he thought of a good excuse for ending up in someones lounge with a lampost, bus shelter and Jonny.

Of couse they would test Jonny's alcohol blood volume, find out that in fact he would have been 3 times over the driving limit, even though he was walking and blame him....never thought of that.

Police driving instructors are authorised to test vehicles unlike Milton. However testing does not allow them to see how fast things go. Handling acceleration and braking are of more interest.
