What's the point of sending me to a good job??
In Myshire you have three types of drivers.
Basic - Those who can just about drive a car! If it weren't for the fact we covered such a large area, we probably wouldn't be allowed to look at one! But basic drivers are just that, able to drive a car without using any blue lights or two tones.
Sector - Those who have almost found the holy grail and who can operate the flashing lights and sirens. Only just however! No pursuit, so if someone decides to do one, then you let them go. So you can go to jobs that are "immediates".
Advanced - Well, these have found the holy grail taken the wings and stuck a steering wheel between them. They're the traffic guys, or old zulu drivers if you're old enough! They can do just about anything on the road!
The reason I make this explanation is that today, it was just a basic driver I was with. So no blues, no twos, no getting their as fast as humanly possible!
On atleast 4 occasions, we were sent to "immediates" (those jobs that are deemed by control, Well that's a whole other post, to be of such a nature to require officers there ASAP!!) where we were at completely the wrong end of town, and at rush hour, you're still making an immediate, stuck in traffic, obeying all the laws and following all the rules.
I have to ask myself, why does the force not train more up! We've got response times to meet, yet we can't because we're not allowed to!
Oh, I ask you. I don't want basic drivers driving like lunatics, I just want more sector drivers, but it seem like too much to ask.
Just one of those things.
