TWO POLICE officers in Glasgow drove off after being confronted for using a speed gun in an unmarked car.

The pair were quizzed as to why they weren’t making themselves more visible by two passers-by.

One of them said: ‘You’re in an unmarked car with a speed gun. You’re meant to be highly visible,’

After the female officer pointed at her high visibility vest and protested ‘we are’, the passer-by retorted: ‘You’re not. You’re in an unmarked car. That’s not highly visible. That’s at shoulder height.

‘Are you telling me that if a car drove down from up there they would be able to easily tell that this is a police car?’

The men then tell the officers that if they pull a vehicle over, they will remain present to argue with the decision, at which point the police offers drive off in their unmarked Vauxhall.
