    You probably spotted the one that operate on M42 by the junction 2 services.
    Nasty shit waiting on slip road where he can't be seen in black BMW 3 series.
    I knew the reg but can't remember now.

    Saw an unmarked Discovery on the M40 yesterday (around Oxford area).

    You can spot them by the blue flashing lights as they ask you to pull over!

    They are not just on motorways.
    However, if you're not doing anything wrong, why worry where they are? :Innocent:

    In Glasgow and surrounding areas most of them have SF at the start of their plates. I have seen one without though. Unmarked on the motorway tend to be either BMW or Audi but there is a Mondeo also on the M77 etc.

    LF is the other letters they seem to start with now. I remember one of my copper mates telling me that SF stood for Strathclyde Federation so I'm assuming LF could be Lanarkshire Federation. Just saw a white BMW with LF today pulling someone over and a grey Astra with SF on the other side of the road pulling someone else over!

    I've seen a black Audi A4 Avant on the M6 toll.

    ^^I agree @Nels

    Some of the driving we all see is pretty shocking, so if a few more patrol cars (marked or unmarked) helps to make people think more, and drive more sensibly, then I'm in favour.
