My mate got a right telling off when he bought a Skarsky and Hutch type siren which plugged into the fag lighter and we went around Manchester with it on.
All the cars moved from us and then the blue flashing light came on behind us....we just played the foolish and my pal just got told off and warned...fun though.
I agree. Hopefully if he has the loot for a Maserati, he has the loot for a good lawyer. As long as he didn't use the car to perpetrate a crime or in any way to sway belief toward him being a cop for personal gain or endanger the general public with it, then this is a non-issue. The prosecutor must show intent too, that he planned on using it in the commission of a crime or for some other criminal reason. Innocently painting your car like that because you think it looks cool, isn't a crime.

Made to pain his car, why? Because it's replicated after a car in a movie which happens to look a bit like a police car but has no markings other than a quote and badge from a movie? We should arrest everyone who is still driving a black and white crown vict with the side lights....

Unless it says "Police" or "Officer"....it isn't impersonating a police officer.
Unless the officer admits to being a decepticon, I see no case here.

Your car has wheels!!! JUST LIKE COP CARS
Its a bit stupid, now if you dress like a cop, make your car look like a cop car and pull people over THATS impersonating a cop.
Cop cars make people drive careful when they are around, sorry how is that a bad thing again?
Stupid rules equal stupid laws - i doubt that even the cops themselves care, but i guess they are just doing their job, cant blame them for it really.
