Pretty angry at the fact the media don't mention that the female driver is pregnant and had children in the car, sort it out!

You do realise the woman driver was 6 months pregnant and had 3 other children in the car at the time of being hit by a speeding police car!!

With all the warnings about the psni clamping down on dangerous driving if found at fault will this squad be sacked or will the public get an excuse why they seem to get off with this behaviour on a regular occurance ?

I hope the officers and the other car's driver are ok. Unrelated to this incident, yesterday around the town was an absolute nightmare with congestion. I was approaching the Lodge Road roundabout (which is one that money has been allocated to to reduce the traffic delays) from Sandleford Bridge. Some IDIOT decided to use the cycle lane to obviate the inconvenience and potential safety of waiting for the lane to the town centre coming free. This was done at a speed of between 40 and 50 mph AT LEAST. This was carried out by a few drivers including a taxi driver before this imbecile. I "foolishly" followed the rules of the road and the driver started blowing his horn and he was clearly raging that he couldn't use the cycle path / hard shoulder. I can understand risk taking but the belief that your moronic actions should be endorsed and indeed be unimpeded by your fellow motorists is beyond understanding. I'd love to see cameras included in the new roundabout because people like that need to be reeducated.
