Well this is different to the usual "will I get points on my licence" thread!

I thought for a second that theory tests had got a lot tougher and more sinister... "If the police motorcycle should approach from your left, which hand should the driver eject the magazine from their Browning Hi Power and throw it into the bushes?. Find the velocity of the police barrage."

So the car travels 45 meters in the 3 seconds, and assuming it continued at the same speed by the time the bike is alongside the car and bike have covered 315 meters together. The car covered the distance in 21 seconds and the bike at 18 seconds, at 17.5 m/s
