A Police chief has claimed that dangerous drivers are a menace and police resources should be diverted to tackling this issue.
Juliet Bravo, Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire, said "The driver in the car behind you is speeding. He is not wearing a seat belt. He is on his mobile phone. He is driving like a lunatic. This man is a Police Officer."
Bravo has controversially called for dangerous driving to be tackled. The Police Federation hit back. Constable John Cole said "We think that the police should concentrate on catching real criminals. Instead we are spending time being suspended from duty and getting prosecuted for causing death by dangerous driving. It's a fantastic waste of resources."
The public wait to see how the row will develop. Will we return to more bobbies on the beat, as they all get banned from driving?
