AussieLars saw today’s article about a ‘professional thug’ getting caught in a Saab by the cops in Britain and thought he’d better balance the ledger with a good-guys story.
What you see here is the South African police in Port Elizabeth taking delivery of a Saab 9-3 V6, courtesy of General Motors South Africa.
If fact, they didn’t just get this one, they got three!
The Saabs were handed over to the ‘Flying Squad’ who handle all the high priority get-there-quick stuff, of which there seems to be a fair bit for one city:
Statistics from 2008 showed that the PE Flying Squad attended to 9 874 complaints, made 600 arrests and recovered 503 stolen vehicles.
“This donation will enable the PE Flying Squad to render a more professional and quicker service to the community,” Rabie and Kapp commented.
Good luck with those Saabs, Mr Plod. Drive ’em like you stole ’em.
I’ve got a special article coming up soon, too – a close up look inside and out at a Swedish police Saab 9-5.
