Cops based near Oxford in the UK have revealed that they are unable to to use flashing blue lights on their new electric car - in case it drains too much power from the battery.

The Thames Valley police force is testing out the £20,000 ($33,000) Mitsubishi iMiev in an effort to improve its environmental credentials. Apart from this quite obvious setback, they have been pleased with the silent, emission-free car, capable of travelling 100 miles on a single charge (with the lights off).

Best not use the radio either because it uses electricity too.

Congratulations England... You went from being the most powerful empire in the world, where you were feared and didnt take shit from anybody to not being able to power the blue lights on your electric police cars.


Stay classy....

good to know you don't have that far to drive before they run out of juice in a chase.

What is funny about this is the stunt doubles really don't look that much like them.

Who needs a double to run down a flight of stairs fast?

Who forgot to use an amp meter before they added all extra shit.
