Yes, I too thought it was interesting that it is not common place for the cops to hide in a effort to catch speeders.
Here in Dallas, I have seen them parked just on the other side of hills, behind signs, behind trees, behind other cars and much more. I have even
seen one cop up in a tree with a radar gun while another was parked way off in the distance and when the tree cop caught a speeder he would radio the
other guy and tell him which car to pull over.
I just always assumed that hiding was a tactic used world wide. I am actually surprised to hear that it isnt.
For that reason, I did not really get why they would deny it. Is it illegal in Scotland for the cop's to hide like that?
Is it just a tactic that the people have not seen much before and they feel violated? Forgive my ignorance as this is a very common occurance here. I
see this atleat once every few weeks....
Could I get some clarification on why the Scottish citizens are not happy and why the cops there would deny it?
Thanks, for bearing with my ignorance!
