Got this link from mrbrown’s blog. It talks about how it is impossible to get a police complaint form in some part of Miami.
Wah… must see the video clip leh. The undercover ask for complaint form only, the police show gun liao.
Why don’t they just do it the Singaporean way? Write to the newspaper. lol….
ON FEB 16 at 11.15am while I was driving along the PIE at Simei exit, I noticed a police car QX4545 hogging the road and swaying from left to right on the extreme right lane.
Near the PIE Bedok exit, it nearly grazed a blue Toyota Corolla which was in the middle lane.
The police car continued to road-hog at under 70kmh on the extreme right lane until it reached Kallang exit, when it started to sway from left to right again.
As it was unsafe to drive behind the police car, I overtook it by taking the middle lane.
I looked at the police car and saw two men in civilian clothes. The driver was talking on his cell phone in his left hand.
I continued driving in the middle lane and as I was about to filter out at Stevens Road exit, I looked at my rear-view mirror and saw the police car still hogging the extreme right lane with other cars tailgating it.
Under what circumstances are police officers allowed to use their cell phones while driving?
If it is an emergency call, shouldn’t the other police officer sitting in the front passenger seat be answering it?
The police should set a good example by being courteous on the road.
To see a police officer using the cell phone while driving is shocking.

And of cos, actions will be taken.
I REFER to Mr Roslan Rahim’s letter ‘Police used phone while driving’ (ST, Feb 18).
We have identified the officers involved and are investigating. The officers will face the same consequences as any other motorist if they are found to have violated any of the traffic rules.
We will not tolerate any of our officers who act irresponsibly and endanger the safety of other road-users.
We thank Mr Roslan for bringing this matter to our attention.

I wonder what will happen to Roslan if he stays in Miami.
