    What about those vehicles that run on garage plates, at full speed on the wrong side of the road with red and blue flashing lights on the dashboard, so far I have not seen any policeman stopped one of those vehicles, in fact i have seen the traffic policeman turn away when they see vehicles with these special lights approaching.

    He is a great man so many unsolved investigations in his hand but keeps adding laws and regulations. I think he is planning to enter the Guinness Record book. via DM Android App
