traffic management group (ex tog) chase cars. theyre all v8's....highway patrol for example.

cop cars are rated according to what speeds and driver training they are "supposed" to do.
ie, divvy vans are only silver and arnt permitted to go over certain speeds when chasing cars.

unless ur using a digi scanner u have no way of knowing if a bike cop has already radio'd ur plates in. and car cops have it all on computer now.

so unless u want to get arrested as soon as u get home id advise to pull over if they have ur plates and are trying to take you down (pull you over)

Rgr that, just saw on the police website. But seriously the grammar fails on their side.. they should be "maintaining" not "managing" traffic. Traffic lights "manage" traffic.

na they manage traffic. they make their own rules for others that they dont abide by so i think that puts them in management position.
