Had a spot check last night off the police

Firstly, this is the General Lounge for most things to do with our roads. Indeed, most of us at some time use the road system in some way. With this in mind, users may post their experiences or observations here.

Had a spot check last night off the police

I pulled away and turned right then I noticed a car had turned into the same street as me.
Then I realised it was the coppers.
Within 100 yards they put on their blue lights and so I pulled over.
Is this your car, sir blah blah.
Just a quick spot check have you got your documents with you blah blah.
I never carry them so I had to sit in the back of his car.
They done their checks and within two minutes I was on my way.
This was a totally random stop by some bored traffic cops.
Fuming I was :argument:
Anyone else been stopped for nothing?

I wouldn't worry about getting a spot check from the police.
I had one.
All they want to know is if you have the right licence and insurance and if your car is old enough, a valid MOT.
You have problems if you have not got the right documentation.
But then again, we all have haven't we ;)

Don't you just hate it when the police pull you over for nothing!
I had a police stop last night and he only checked three of my tyres with his hand.
My other car is a Reliant Robin and you can say what you like!

I think the police stop you when they get bored.
Don't they have quotas as well?
Stay safe everyone!

The police have a quota to fulfil, they will stop people for nothing.
They should really only stop you if they suspect a crime has been committed.
However, they just stop you for nothing in most cases.
