Re: failed to stop for PCSO on operation tackling irrespons

If they were conducting an authorised road check then ill eat my hat. I was merely showing that all PCSO's do have a power to stop vehicles as people were saying we dont.

The only littering ticket power is using local council tickets (which is ridiculous because i would probadly have to carry around 3 different ticket books on me) but our ticket for littering in my local area is £80 so higher than the police PND
