It is definitely illegal to drive a police car.
There is more to just driving this car with the badge as it spells a matter between life and death. A huge sense of responsibility is put on the person every time he or she drives this car while on duty. And because such vehicles are not literally for the faint hearted, few people are given the privilege to even drive one.
Here are just some of the important lessons that you can learn while driving a police car. And this is from an anonymous person who had a first hand experience of driving one.
You Drive In A Bubble On The Highway
For some strange reason, driving a police car exerts the kind of authority that alerts the common driver to move away once they are on the same lane. The police car for the ordinary citizen also emanates a sense of urgency that should not be tampered with unless necessary.
Parking Outside Is Trying
It does not come as a surprise that a police car can cause quite some stir in a community. Prepare to have tongues wagging especially if you happen to have a relative who is a cop and he happens to drop by at your home for dinner.
Cops Love It
Need we say more? The car also breathes an air of prestige and authority the same way their police badge does. And it would not come as a surprise that new units will also have every officer in the force on their toes.
I Drive Like A Grandma In It
Any vehicle that is used by organizations made for defense have a variety of extra perks inside their ride. Perhaps, the most tempting of all is pressing the button that puts the siren on.
It’s Pretty Good To Drive
Who does not want to drive a police car, really? With all these new sand customized specs, you can see why being police isn’t so bad.
The Urge To Push All The Buttons Is Overwhelming
With so many customized specs, it feels normal to push all those buttons like life depended on it. After all, you just want to know what each button does.
Civilians Hate It
There is a simple answer to this: people think they are in trouble for something they may or may not have done when they see a police car within their vicinity. Talk about skeletons in your closet.
You Drive In A Pack In The City
One of the things that you have to consider when driving a cop’s car is the fact that you often drive in a pack or a group. Such a bummer.
