The Rugby Advertiser reports that a policeman set off to Overslade intent on trapping drivers by radar. The first householder whom he approached about setting up his apparatus in the drive to the house refused permission. In backing the Police Morris Traveller out onto the road to try his luck at the next house the policeman hit an on-coming Mini. The motorcycle police patrol, presumably waiting to take part in the trapping, did not help by parking opposite. The police driver was fined £10 by Rugby Court and had to pay £5 5s. towards an advocate’s fee.

A letter has been received congratulating the Essex constabulary on their keen observation and efficiency. The correspondent’s M.G. Midget was travelling along A127 with its bonnet insecurely fastened early one Saturday morning. He noticed this and stopped in a lay-by to fix it, before resuming a 70 m.p.h. cruising pace. At the Halfway House roundabout he was halted by one of the crew of a patrol car, who pressed down on the bonnet. Another police car had noticed it flapping and radioed back to have the driver told about it. So one sports-car driver went on his way with a good opinion of the helpfulness of the police in this area.

Bucks County Constabulary are to include advice to purchasers of cars in their county on how to prevent them from being stolen (1,272 were stolen in Bucks alone, last year). With the co-operation of dealers they will include in the car’s papers a personal letter from the Acting Chief Constable and a “Bucks Constabulary” envelope containing pamphlets on Crime Prevention and on locks and alarm systems for vehicles. The County Crime Prevention Officer, Inspector L. Bishop, telephone Aylesbury 5010, ext. 113, will give additional advice. The Chief Constable of Bucks has previously taken a realistic view of motorists’ problems, preferring his patrols to caution rather than convict, and so there is every chance of something useful coming out of the present campaign.
