Good

I got pulled for having both mine on just before Xmas by a motorbike copper and it actually was foggy. Me and my mate were laughing to ourselves tho cos as I indicated to pull away one my fog lights would have come on and as I was still following him every roundabout I went round and junction I took my fog lights were coming on

You should have told Mr. Copper to go find a a Merc cos they have been doing it for years , half the new Seat range have cornering fog lights too, i've seen a new Polo and a new Skoda so next time tell him to get stuffed

I don’t know I would use those exact words, but hell it would be funny if you did!
Seriously though, it’s obviously just been one of those PC’s where a little bit power has gone straight to his head.
I would pull the handbook out, if it ever happens again.

Re: The Rozzers

Join the club, i got stopped before xmas during plods drink drive campaign.
You just turned left and you had fog lights on.
Yes i turned left, and no i dont have fog lights on.
Plod walks to front off car and i demonstrate Fiats cornering lights, never seen that before says plod i will check those out, have you been drinking.
Just finished an 8 hour night shift and on the way home after dropping swmbo at work, said no and off i went.
If this is going to cause problems go into the menu and turn them off.

Thats not the point though. If they are fitted as standard, I am entitled to use them without being harrassed by the village idiot and his blue lights.


Ps I prefer my Italian stripes to his blue and yellow checkered ones

Re: The Rozzers

I rever couple years ago I got pulled for my exhaust copper asked my why he pulled me and I thought I was for no seat belt he then checked my exhaust and was .1 db under limit so he went throw my car with a tooth pick then after half hour trying to them say had on rear fl he told me to go then followed me when pulled in to get other half he stopped and went I've just followed you and you still have no seat belt on.

Thought he would have spotted the bright red 4 point harnesses.

Then seen him later on that evening and he pulled up next to me at lights and told me to turn front fogs off but he faulted to notice this other 2 times to had words with me

Re: The Rozzers

tell the copper you cant turn them off as the vehicle is ec type approved with the feature fitted, as its legal in the eu member state where the car was type approved its legal throughout Europe then watch his face drop


Its the same with OEM factory fit HID units the UK road vehicle lighting regs they are not mentioned ergo illegal to use or have fitted however they are legal in Europe so EEC rules come into play as our laws are so out of date and have not kept up with advances in technology

same goes for LED tail lights and the like on other cars

Re: The Rozzers

They should be pulling over the f***ing jerks who drive around at night, and even during the day, with there actual fog lights on, it's rife around the area I live and to see Traffic Cops let alone your usual plods driving around is as common as rocking horse sh*t! It makes me mad and you try flashing these idiots they give you the finger or don't know what the f*ck your trying to tell 'em, if I was flashed I would use common sense and check out the car etc.

+1 I also think that fiat's fog lights should not turn off after 50 kmh..So you will have better visibility in corners on a mountain or any road without lights and also it would be easily to be seen from cars on the other lane..

and especially the ones that drive at night with lights off....if you dont know your lights are off at night (big bright illuminated dashboard in front of you!) then you shouldn't be on the f*cking roads!
Thanks IronHorse thanked for this post

Re: The Rozzers

I had the same happen to me, when i was waiting to turn right with my cornering light on, the cop car pull at side of me and told me to turn my fog lights off, i thought it was quite funny and told him they wasnt on and explained they was cornering lights. i told me that it was crazy then drove off. haha love it when they think they know it all.

Totally agree, its the same in B'mth, every other car drives around with fog lights on. It used to be just the chavs but everyone is doing it now.
Do these plonkers think they look cool or something.

I used to flash them to but dont bother anymore. Cant the plod give on the spot fines for this, if so they could make a shed load of money down here.
