    Titles read: "ESSEX MOBILE POLICE IN ACTION".

    Essex.

    M/S of a long line of traffic approaching a semi-rural junction. The cars turn left and right - they seem to all be police cars.

    One police car drives slowly along a country road and passes two cars coming from the opposite direction. The second car attempts to overtake the first on a bend but falls back behind at the sight of the police. The police car slowly turns around and follows the car, overtakes it and flashes a sign in the rear window of the police car, reading 'Police Stop'.

    The two policemen get out and walk over to the inconsiderate driver. An extremely young-looking policeman has a little chat with the man about his attempted overtake and the man humbly agrees that if the policeman had been a less-experienced driver he might have been frightened into doing something foolish or dangerous. It's quite funny!
