Berlin cops can't handle BMWs


Beamer ban for bad-driving Berlin bobbies


21 September 2005

BERLIN - Police in the German capital are such bad drivers that they are losing their beloved BMW squad cars after having been involved in too many crashes, media reports said Wednesday.

At least 22 of the leased BMW 5 series estate cars have been totally demolished in accidents since the force took delivery of the vehicles in December 2002, said the Berliner Kurier newspaper.

Over 60 per cent of the crashes were the fault of officers behind the wheel, the paper added.

As a result, Berlin's cops are being downgraded in motor world and will in the future drive the slower and less sexy VW Touran van.

It could only be worse if they were mandated to have a magnetic soccerball stuck on the rear door.

Thats 22 in three years, for a department the size of Berlin's. That doesn't sound that high, really.

It is, considering that it takes at LEAST nine months of rigorous training just to get a BASIC drivers license in Germany.

It is one thing to punish them, but anothing entirely to torture them. Show some compassion.

Remember to laugh from a distance. There are still no established Police brutality statutes in Germany. They can beat you until their arms get tired, and then the kicking starts......

Damn, the rest of the world truly sucks.

I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

So in an urban city with a population in the millions, the police have totalled 4 cars per year, thier fault, for the past 3 years. They change cars based on that? It would make sense if there were 4 officers there.

Did they ever think the VW van will take longer to stop once the brakes come on.................... making crashes MORE likely not less.

Of course they could deal with the 14 officers invovled in the crashes directly instead of punishing the other 99.9%..................................

Yeah, let's not forget that either.


European driver's training is sooooooo superior to American driver's training.
