They have several utes. I’ve seen two unmarked Holden utes, one doing speed trap and the other pulling people over. If you suspect the ute in front of you is an unmarked cop car, look for tiny lights on the rear near the tailgate hinges.

Plenty of cars like this getting about. As well as the usual Falcadores there’s Mitsubishis, Toyotas and 4WDs as well.

The strangest one I think is the Toyota Prius. Interesting to see how that would go in a pursuit.

Have heard a few anecdotal stories of the utes, in particular, revving it up at the lights to try and suck other motorists in for a TLGP.

A bright green ute by any chance? It seems to be at every job across ACT.

It’s one of the 3 RAPID vehicles. What’s the advantage of a ute? It can carry lots of stuff, eg cones and other equipment.

Nah, they can’t do that any more, they are drug tested now.

They wouldn’t be that comfortable in the back of the ute when they catch them!!!

Great idea!
