New exclusive story from Exposed Police: Have you ever been pulled over by traffic police in a red, yellow, green, brown, blue, pink or black car and wondered why? This was probably because the police were in the process of playing their favorite past time called motorway snooker!
Police motorway snooker was once a myth, there have been stories in the past of bored traffic police passing time by stopping speeding cars and scoring as if the cars were snooker balls. As an example stopping a red Ford would score one point and then stopping a black BMW would score another point followed by another red continuing until all the colours had been done. As with normal snooker the highest score then wins.
How traffic police score your car:
- Red car = 1 point
- Yellow car = 2 point
- Green car = 3 point
- Brown car – 4 point
- Blue car = 5 point
- Pink car = 6 point
- Black car = 7 point
Well you heard it from us first, traffic police snooker is not a myth… It is a pathetic and crude game played by traffic police on a daily basis and has been covered up for some time with no real proof of existence till now!
For legal reasons we cannot name the member of public who was at a Sunday barbecue in Swindon Wilkshire but it’s reported an off duty police officer under the influence of alcohol openly admitted the myth of police snooker really does exist and is played on UK motorways as we speak.
Devon and Cornwall Police are reported to be investigating the existence of Motorway Snooker after John Emslie made his complaint. John Emslie told The Times news paper that when he asked why his partner, who was driving a black Jeep Cherokee behind him at the same speed, had not been stopped, he said he was told a game of Motorway Snooker was in progress.
Mr Emslie is not alone. An MG owners’ club magazine reported last year suspicions of the game taking place when, on having changed his car to a red model, one chap found himself being stopped every other day. And thieves have got in on the game as well. Police in Humberside, as well as other places in the UK, have in the past issued warnings to owners of cars of a particular colour, knowing where the thieves have got to in their “break”.
A spokesmen of Exposed Police said “It’s no longer a question of whether police snooker exists or not but when these corrupt coppers will be investigated, suspended and disciplined as necessary, this is disgusting and the police officers involved should feel ashamed”.
Tip’s to avoid UK traffic police:
- Don’t drive red cars – because there are 15 reds on a snooker table, the reds are much more likely to get potted.
- Similarly, don’t drive black cars. Although they may look sleek, stylish, moody and expensive, earning seven points makes them the top target.
- It’s probably not a good idea to drive pink cars either. Not only are they high scorers, but the chances of looking sleek, stylish, moody or expensive are slim.
- If you don’t have a red car, you should still be wary. Driving behind them could make you liable for a swift one-two, with you both being “potted” in swift succession.
- Mr Emslie was driving a yellow Alfa, but in the rules of the game, yellow, green and brown should be fairly safe bets, as they are low scoring. Getting a bad position after a red might give a playing officer no choice, though.
- White cars are safest of all. Police cars, being white, act as the cue ball in the game. So if a white car is booked, it is tantamount to a foul and will count as four points away. Jason Copeland of the MGM group said, in contrast to the driver with the red car, he had been driving a white car for seven years without being stopped.
The Department of Environment, Transport and the Regions has been running a hard-hitting campaign to tell drivers that cutting their speed to 30mph from 35mph halves the risk of killing pedestrians.
