I would be extremely pissed off.
I also agree with one of the comments on that site on how the officers should replace the vehicle and then be sacked.

Re: car owner not impreza with poilce driving his evo

damn right they should pay for it, but i can tell you tho i would find it hard not to have a little go wouldnt you, but then again i own a scooby and know driven a car like that aint like jumping in ya grans car. not sure sacking them would be right they have made a mistake and crashed and no one was hurt. HOWEVER if they had hurt anyone then jail and no job.

Pi**ed off big time but dont think they should be sacked, suspended without pay and also pay for the car they wrecked and re-train them again how to drive a car

Normal procedure is to use a recovery vehicle - I WONDER why they decided to take his for a run! The taxpayer will end up paying for this as said above. They would throw the book at us so good enough for them - sack em!

Re: car owner not impreza with poilce driving his evo

Funny thing is they take the car saying he could cause an accident, then they write it off themselves........................................ ............................................... Again thinking about this logically they would have told him all what could happen with speeding etc and told him he was a danger to others blah blah blah including a danger to himself probably. Funny thing is this was his car which he is used to and probably never crashed. Only for an incompetant officer of the law (probably with little experience in a car of this power) does this. Now who should be the ones paying silly insurance. Us performance car owners generally look after the car, know the cars limits, dont want the car damaged spend loads on security and generally dont claim off the insurance unless some idiot runs into us. Seems unfair really doesnt it that we pay the high premium. Insurance STINKS...... about time the real causes of accidents and people with low security on cars pay the premiums.

Re: car owner not impreza with poilce driving his evo

There's no excuse for drink driving, I don't condone the actions of the idiots who took his car for a spin but makes me think that anyone caught drink driving should have their car crushed, you would only need to crush a few cars and a lot of people would soon think twice about drink driving !
Anyway back to the story, what a pair of bell ends !

Have to agree about the drink driving. The driver will have to accept his punishment just as much as the cops will!

What idiots getting into a car like that and wrecking it. I doubt very much they drive a car like this day to day and you need time to get used to high power car before throwing it around a bit.

They should have let the owner drive it home would have done better drunk, and i dont agree with drink driving at all.

he has not been charged with drink driving yet, however totally agree with your point. happend to a mate of mine who works for the railways, got up ay 4am on saterday morning to drive a train, on the way to work he was pulled and arrested for drink driving (POLICE COULD SMELL DRINK ON HIM!!!!) they asked if he had been drink NO he said. he actually blew over the limit on the test, went to station and went on the machine there but before he could do it another officer asked the same questions as before but ADDED HAVE YOU USED ANY MOUTH WASH THIS MORNING? yes was the answer and thats why he failed at the raod side but passed in the police station.

Could have been worse, could have been a Scooby. He was a t****r for drink driving anyway. As for the Police they should know better but they will get away with it
