    He's not that well hidden - I can see him!

    Easiest game of "Where's (the) Wally?" I've played in a long time!

    Well done to the Police.

    I have to admit he is not very well hidden. I am a supporter of police catching criminals but the question is how come he has no ANPR (For tax dodgers, insurance etc) or any visible speed camera? I can only guess he was looking for mobile/ seat-belt offenders or was he just purely guessing a vehicles speed?

    may be looking out for "hatched lines" drivers. Enough of them around there

    Yes, you often get pushed into them on Kew roundabout because of the a****oles who cut straight across the lanes, like the guy yesterday, who, in his grey people carrier, did this to me then gave me the finger.

    Is it against the high way code/law to go onto a ghost island [ hatched area ] - if the ghost island is only surrounded by broken white lines? IE not continuous white lines as its boundary

    A broken line can be crossed, only when absolutely necessary, a good example of this are the centre markings down cemetry road. If it solid - you should not cross.

    I'm going to be well knackered at the next STOP line then :)

    Rule 129
    You MUST NOT cross or straddle double white lines in normal driving. Exceptions are: if it is safe to do so and you need to enter premises adjoining the carriageway or a side road. In addition, it is permissible to cross the line as necessary and provided the road is clear, to pass a stationary vehicle. Or to overtake a horse, pedal cycle or road maintenance vehicle, only if they are not travelling at speeds greater than 16 km/h (10 mph). You can also cross double white lines when ordered to do so by a policeman in uniform.
