Think of the ribbing there's going to be if it's a young man that has to wear the trews!

Hi-Visibility clothing on most 'A' Roads, Dual carriageways & all Motorways is mandatory with most Police forces in England already.

I blame it all on the fact that rules and regulations were changed a number of years ago. Safety is paramount in any police force, but you will always get the few who think they are being 'inconvenienced' more than others.

I only just realised that our local police force were issuing mens trousers to women, that is all changing, and the women are having their own designed trousers :O)

if Police Officers weren't highly visible, and started being killed as they tried to do their jobs on the roads.

I'm all for a bit of over-compensation where vulnerable peoples' personal safety is involved. The Northern Constabulary's ruling may be a tad unfortunate in its wording, but I'm sure it will be interpreted with a degree of sensitivity.
