.....and another for the rest of us. If you get pinged for speeding, you know they'll do their damndest to give you the summons within the fourteen days specified by the Road Traffic Act. However, if a copper speeds, it seems they'll just let it lie on the books until it's 'timed out'. I think the fact that an unco-operative drunk driver was being arrested is irrelevant in this instance. Copper does 124mph and gets away with it. Things like this only result in a lowered public perception of the police.
