I've recently picked up an 'intention to prosecute for speeding' issued by their mobile unit. - Thing is, he was parked on DOUBLE YELLOW lines! - Do I have a case for having it thown out on the grounds that the police vehicle was being outrageously unsafe at the time AND breaking the law - anyone know?
They can get away with a number of things, but I'd suggest you investigate further on the double yellows thing.

My other cars are less unusual!
