              Sgt.....I just can't see myself driving (let alone sitting in) one of those things. I am too much of a tradionalist I suppose.

                • Can anyone be taken seriously as a security or LE officer in one of those. I guess the perps are to busy rofl to get away.

                  When I was Navy Security Force at Naval Weapons Station Concord, we were the first NSF, taking over from the Marines. So we worked for them till we had enough personnell assigned, then they worked for us till we were 100%. Anyway, we inherited everything but weapons pretty much. Our vehicles were Ford Rangers on a 2 year lease. Now, some posts had alot of buildings to check, one had 106 stops in 6 hours. Pretty hard on them, doing that twice a day.

                  So as the vehicles became shot before the two years, we picked some up from salvage at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. We had this 73 chevy pickup, (this was about '88), and I was SOG (Sargent of the Guard) and had just pulled up to mobile 24 in the 73 chevy. As he hit the brakes, a pully fell off and rolled out in front of him . Mobile 24 was now on foot.

                  • The Montreal Police have 2 or 3 of those little Bombardier vehicles. They are used in parks, during sidewalk sales etc. They are not used for everyday patrol.

                    • The car I most drive at my place is an 07 plate Vauxhaul Zafira in black. It has about 3k on the clock.

                      If thats unavailable there's usually a silver 56 plate Vauxhaul Zafira to use as a back up. Its a bit crapper than the '07 to drive...gears are looser and its always dirty inside as its more of a general utility vehicle

                        So I looked up the website. But what's this '07 plate and '56 plate? That's not the year is it? Sorry, but that's not yank lingo

                        • the last part of the license plate is the year... the first part is currently the month in which the vehcile is licensed... the 0 corresponds to April and the 5 is September...

                          thats the way out license plates have worked for 7 years...

                          01 (april 2001)
                          51 (sept 2001)
                          02 (april 2002)
                          52 (sept 2002)
                          and so on

                          sorry about the confusion.

                            Hey, I always say "you learn something new everyday". It definitely holds true for me, and I'm 45 y/o. I'm curious as to why April is 0 and not January? Obviously a British thing, but you use the same calender, soooo.....?

                            • well i'm assuming its because April is the start of our financial year, so i'm guessing that they make it april to keep finance deals easier to work out... But personally i dunno...that really is a big big guess

                                Well, that makes sense.
