Watch A Vauxhall Astra Police Car Pull A 180 At Crime Scene: Video5
Maybe this pair of officers had been watching too many police chases because the stunt they pulled—while cool—might have ended much worse.
Video shows a Vauxhall Astra police cruiser approach the scene of what appears to be some sort of street altercation in Kent, England. As the Astra police car approaches the scene, it seems the officer loses control of the police car and ends up pulling a haphazardly executed 180-degree turn, parking the car in the same direction it came from.
We’re joking with this one a bit because the maneuver hardly looks intentional—the Astra police car bumps the curb quite a bit upon its J-turn. Still, it’s entertaining to watch, but we’re glad no one was harmed as the Astra flipped around on what appears to be a pretty tight street. Have a look at the move in the video below.

The videos are usually at the top of the post, but not in this one. Can you find it?
No I could not find it.
The curb arrested further out of control travel. Officer needs to take the right seat or office chair for a few months. A few split lips could have led to a some serious injury or death by the offices hyper actions.
Control starts first with looking far ahead and then controlling your speed based on critical observations. Doesn’t matter whether your flying an airplane or running your skate board down the street. Control your speed.
The officer was in the right seat. England they drive on the wrong side of the road. They even sit in the wrong side of the car when they drive.
Reported elsewhere there was a spill (diesel?) on the road. Incident is under investigation by the Police Complaints Authority / Commission – so should be interesting to see what they conclude. But if it was intentional – and it may well not have been – it looks like a pretty unforgivable piece of driving.
