Highways Agency 2 - something to hide?

While traveling down the M3 the other day, I noticed a Highways Agency 4x4 parked up in the little area off the hard shoulder, that has a sign that clearly states 'Police vehicles only'.  Now I do appreciate they have a job to do, and that it's convenient to position themselves in these mini lay-bys, but the law is the law, and if anyone else did it, they'd be prosecuted.  I can't find anything in my copy of the Highway Code that allows these 'Traffic Officers' to ignore motorway signage.

So while on the road, I gave the Highways Agency a ring, and got through to Andy.  I told him I was recording the call, and stupidly I mentioned I might broadcast it and surprise surprise, Andy wasn't happy about that.  If he's doing his job properly, why would he have something to hide?!  Have a listen....

I've written to his manager, and will post any reply I get right here!

PS - Work is super busy at the moment, so updates might be a bit light for a few weeks.  If you have something you'd like to publish, please email it to me and I'll do my best!  And keep the site bookmarked - there's more fun to come soon, including my bunfight with the Police over a spurious allegation against me, which I plan to refute in court and following which I have a great complaint to put in ;-)
