Pimp My Paddy Wagon

Clearly Brunstrom’s crew at the North Wales police have decided that if you can’t beat them, you may as well join them, and have kitted out a police van with thousands of pounds worth of plod mods.

They reckon if they turn up at cruise events in their modified Ford Transit (resplendent in classic Martini race colours and recently retired from camera duty) they can talk to the participants about road safety. Presumably once the laughter has died down.

Predictably, many people are mocking the police for this, but I think they deserve some credit.

OK, so it’s about as cool as your dad coming out clubbing with you, but at least they’re making an effort to engage with a culture that most police forces don’t even try to understand, much less care about.

The bottom line is, that if a single life is saved, the effort will have been worth it, and by running a modified motor themselves, they might even learn a thing or two.

If any plumbers out there feel inspired enough to kit out their transit van, you know where to come for modified van insurance.
