drivers stick to the rules. But there are other s who chance their
arm committing offences and hoping they will never get caught. It is
up to to Motorway Cops to look out for those who take risks. When
you're on patrol, you're always looking for things, to generate
your own workload. And that is how we operate. We will go for what we
think will get us the best result and take a dangerous driver off the

They have seen some ropey means of transport, but this takes the

Everything seemed to be just happening today and he was going to

shorted out when it stopped. It is crazy to go on to the motorway with
a thing like that, which to anybody wouldn't seem safe to ride in a
playing field, let alone on a highway. Some of it is in order.

for something there is nothing available. He decides to escort
them to the nearest services. But it is to become clear how
vulnerable they are. As he started to move, because of the fact he had
no mirrors or indicators, he was pulling on to the inside lane then
a truck come back and we looked at him and thought, there will be
something happen. This guy will get wiped out in front of us. There is
no way we can turn a blind eye to this. He is taking too many chances.

people on the road who commit offences to try look to commit

The job he does, he's I'm sure he has dealt with a number of patients
and victims of serious road collisions, which could have been
caused by drink drivers. So he's seen the other end of it. One of
the consequences this time is a trip to the police station for a
further breath test and until he gets there, he won't be allowed to
use his phone. Switch that phone off for us? No, switch your phone
off. I need to let my girlfriend know. You can't have contact with

what he has got. He can hardly stand up. He nearly tripped up over

And what is more shocking than anything, he is a nurse. You take
the risk and you have a Rhys thank we won't find you. On this occasion,
we did. So at those times you never know where we're. We could be in
the weirdest place at the weirdest time, which will be the right time
for us and the wrong time for you. While the drink driver is taken to
the police station, 15 miles south the biker who risked life and lum
by taking his mobile kennel is being dealt with. I need to give
you a ticket for this. And then I have done my bit. Can you get on
the phone and start jacking up recovery. I would prefer to do it

But the dangerous state of the bike has not hit home yet. Just a few

people who take chances. They take chances with the condition of the

they have got away with it today. But we're always out there looking

but this extra test usually comes up positive as well. My experience
of the last few drink-drivers, they have all come back were the limit
anyway. So maybe it is a bit of a waste of time, doing it. It is a
second chance that is wasted when you could just charge them and send
them to court anyway. Each blood test costs around �80 and is paid
for by the police. The option to go to blood was introduced when
breathalysers were not as accurate as they are today. A recent
government report has proposed that these blood tests are abolished. It
will be at least three hours before he is sober and free to go, and up
to six weeks before he knows there is also of his blood test. If you

they are roadworthy and not running on a legal duel, making sure
drivers are all legitimate. Con for it a popular belief we do not have

it look legitimate. They cannot be 100% sure if the vodka is
legitimate without a proper test, but the label seems forged, meaning
that duty has never been paid. It It is bad news for white van man.

into. It seems pointless. It seemed pointless, because yes, he is
committing offences, no insurance, it is a motoring offence. It is not
a criminal offence. See how good you look for lying. I asked you
several times. I don't know. have got people like that you know

get the punishment he deserves. reason for his pretence is simple.
Is what why you have given us false detail, because you have no
insurance. Yes. But it has got him into more serious trouble. You're
getting yourself a criminal record just for muck us about. I thought
it was worth the risk, I would be banned. There will always be people
who will give it a run and some no doubt have got away with minor

have told me. When they dance alpolicy, for non-payment -- cancel

It is your fault. You didn't sort it out. It is a simple answer, go
to courts and tell them you don't have time to get insluerd. They
would love it. We understand, you're a busy man. I know it's

apparent she had been drinking. Come and have a seat sit in the car.

is a �100 car they do not insure it, because the insurance out ways the

Coleman. Her though, jump in. It is the white van man! What is your
name? Do you have ID? No, I haven't. Immediately, it was obvious these
two knew each other. But not according to the man. A are you
sure your name is not Munir Hussain? 100%. What is your name?
Shakira Nadia. Water records often come across persistent offenders
but this is especially memorable for PC common. We were with the BBC
at the time we stopped this man. And that programme was on for weeks
ago. You don't remember me? 100%? Take your glasses off. Have a look
of it there. Look that way. You don't remember me at all? What is
your real name? Munir Hussain? has made a schoolboy error with his
idea. You have got now driving licence. He is using someone else's
name, and he has got no licence. If you are going to use somebody's
details you want them to be clean. Do you remember re-arrested you
with a white van and we went to court with you? Yes or no? If you
carry on flying, I am going to arrest you for attempting to
pervert the course of justice. Don't be silly. You are on national
television. I went to court with your last year. What is your name?
Shaqeel Nazir. It is Munir Hussein. I wanted him to have some honesty,
but he would not tell me. We do not believe who you are, so you are
under arrest. PC Coleman has some idea why the man is refusing to
come clean. Are you busy? I knew he was disqualified because he had
previous dealings with me, and I knew that he was disqualified. You
come up to me in court and said, no hard feelings! For whatever reason
he was never going to tell Alan what his name and date of birth
were. So he knows who you are, you know you are, why don't you just
say who you are? And your date of birth? So, first name is Munir

you forget? Why is this the jackpot for me? With the camera crew again,

Exasperation is what I think it is. I have been married for a loan time,
I am used to women sign. But then the playful manager changes. I want

delayed in order for you to speak to your solicitor. A I want to see
my solicitor, now. I think she is used to being in the driving seat,
telling people what to do. But she's in the custody block and had
to do what she is told. What are you doing? Oi! It is quite bad,
that is a word that I have learned in England. You look at these
people who have high profile jobs, and you think, you should know
better. And you want to tell them that sometimes. Keep going, keep
going, keep going, keep going. Well done. OK. Deep breath in. Keep

others, and for PC Hadley, she has been flirting with disaster. There
will always be people who want to take the risk. It is not worth
taking the chance. People get killed by drink-drivers. The
consequences of that are horrible. Everybody knows that you are not
supposed to do it. Everybody knows the dangers. Campaigns have been
made for years telling people not to do it, and the results are self
evident. I have got no sympathy for people who do it. The drunk Dutch
woman was fined �460, paid �105 costs, and was banned from driving
for 17 months. The medic who was drunk at the wheel was fined �200,
had to pay �95 in costs and was disqualified for driving from 12
months. The man who had no time to check his monthly insurance
payments to seat six points on his licence and was paid �100 -- fine
�100 for driving without insurance. He was too busy to pick of his car,
which was scrapped. No further action was taken against the driver

destroyed by customs officers. The man who gave false details because
he didn't not have insurance was fined �100, plus 65 praise for
obstructing police, and received six points on his licence. Munir
Hussain, the driver to refuse to give his real name, was fined for
driving while disqualified, having no insurance, and no MoT. He did
not collect his car, so it was scrapped. And the motor cyclist
The Motorway Cops catch up with the drivers who try to cheat the system, taking chances even though that may mean putting other people's lives at risk - and they find that the drivers who do this are often those they come across time and time again.
On the M6 the Motorway Cops are cracking down on 'white van man' in a joint operation with VOSA (the Vehicle Standards Agency). More than two million white vans are on the roads but many are untaxed, untested and not roadworthy. But it's what they find inside the van that interests the cops including six hundred bottles of vodka. The van driver has bought them on the cheap, intent on reselling them and making a quick buck, but his hopes are dashed as the cops find out that the vodka may well be illicit and they have to decide what to do with it all.
In the city PC's Alan Colman and Jess Rojek come across a familiar face; someone PC Colman caught behind the wheel of a stolen van in the last series of Motorway Cops. This time he's caught red handed, driving whilst disqualified, but even though PC Colman knows exactly who he is, the man refuses to admit anything.
PCs Kevin Whitehouse and Jerry Hadley attend a crash where a woman has had a lucky escape cornering too fast and ripping a wheel from her car. As they arrive they find out that drink may be the cause, and discover that the woman is a qualified nurse, someone who should be acutely aware of the dangers of drink driving.
