    I don't think the actually issue is being looked at here. How many of you guys have had over 25 stops.. for no apparent reason, been followed around for 20 minutes in the space of 12 months?

    There are loads of young people driving expensive cars that have not had to go through such an ordeal.

    Whoever made the comment about it being 5 mins, well to that i say. 1. usually it takes more than 5 mins as these officers are always trying to find something to pin on my bf. 2. 5 mis x 25 is a lot of unnecessary minutes wasted and 3. the duration of the search is irrelevant its the reason and principle behind it.

    The question that I originally posed was whether in such circumstances, are you required or could you request a written reason for the search? B/ c all of these could make a case in itself.

    Another thing that comes to mind, 2 weekends ago, my bf was outside rooting for something in his boot, 2 PC officers drove past, turn around in the road, and asked what he was doing, and who's car it was blah blah its so pathetic. WHAT, CAN SOMEONE NOT LOOK FOR SOMETHING IN THEIR BOOT!!!!
    lord. that's bad. maybe he's just an unlucky boy. was he in a dodgy area at the time?

    i said 5 minutes because that's how long it was for me.

    this is what i think. a certain amount of stereotyping (based on evidence) makes society run smoother. it means the baddies get caught :cool:

    it's a shame innocent people get inconvenienced, but i can't see another way.

    Nonsense. I've been driving a Jag since I was 18 (admittedly the parents') and the only time I ever got pulled over was at 2am in a small town .....
    Your location might also have a bearing on whether or not the police pull you over.

    exactly. you're more likely to be pulled over in certain areas of the big L.D.N (:cool: ) then a little village.

    My god the OP's got a bit of a temper......

    It makes perfect sense for the police to do what they are doing, get over it.

    You are evidently a credit to your boyfriend

    But if the police suspect the car is dodgy or the person they are quite within their right to pull the person over.

    thats my intelligent contribution, but really as I'm from cornwall, what do you expect? this stuff never happens down here

    Is he always getting pulled over by the same officers, or do they all look the same to you when you're drunk on White Lightning and stuff

    Haha, OP, what a fool. Drive a car worth more than your nans sofa and you get pulled over, get used to it.

    As others have so well pointed out, the most common car criminals are young males...so it makes sense to pull over young males, not a 97 year old nun in a metro... pretty simply really.

    perhaps she's trolling for sympathy, she's not going to find it here, better to go back down the offy with her cheap cider and her "crew"
