I/2 a police car

A police car passed me today, well actually it was half a police car. The passenger side was painted in police colours + the Police logo, on the top was half of the flashing blue light (switched off).

The drivers side was painted in black.

Anyone any idea what it's all about, I guess it could be car sharing:)

Well it's identical to the one running around in the Louth (Lincolnshire) area. Today was the second sighting in a week and the driver was wearing an high visibility jacket

Perhaps its a 'covert' car, trying to fool the criminals and public ;o)

Or a low budget film being made in the area.

If you contact your local police HQ or newspaper, they might have the answer.

maybe "a cut and shut" from 'Honest Johns/Freds/TomCobley/ Motors'

It's a left over from the work of that well known garage partnership - U. Bendum and W.E. Mendum.

I thought that if a PC is not driving the car then the blue light had to be covered ?
