I may be mistaken but I'm fairly sure that the Police don't use car forums as a source of information on motoring/construction & use legislation.

Here is my opinion.......cut the plod some slack and wise up to the fact that individuals dont know everything. If it had gone to court we all know what the outcome would have been so why carry on about who was right and who was wrong. They do a damned good job and get fa respect for it. As far as i am concerned the only person you are making an arse out of is yourself ffs.
lol.

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

Back on the topic of what law trumps what.

Cars are homologated in whichever their country of origin is. To be sold in the EU they have to meet the EU's "umbrella" regulations. It must then meet the local regulations unless they contradict the EU regulations, those of the original homologation or safety, best example is which way the headlight dips.

It basically means that as long as it meets EU regs and will pass an MOT or equivalent it can be sold anywhere in the EU.

It is more complicated than that, but it's coming from someone who works for in automotive design department.

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

For companies that homologate cars in the UK, eg Jaguar, Land Rover, Nissan, Honda etc.

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

If police officers would just listen once in a while then people wouldn't complain about them being cocky.

I had a young upstart of an officer giving me the attitude about the Bravo's cornering lights. Rather than saying something like "I see your fog light is on and it's not foggy, can you explain why it is on" he decided to try to be clever by trying to get my to incriminate myself.

He ended up quite wound up in front of a few other officers - adamant that I was breaking the rules - and then looked a right plank when I finally got chance to explain why it was on.

Respect must be earned - It doesn't come bundled as part of the uniform.
