Cops and Bollards

We've all done daft things at times, things we know we shouldn't, or things we did when we weren't paying attention, but I cannot help but feel sorry for the motorist in the story on the Telegraph's website this morning. Bad enough that you've driven over a rising bollard, only to have said bollard punch clean through you car. How much worse is it when you're a police officer, in an unmarked car, in the middle of a busy city surrounded by amused shoppers armed with camera phones?
I would suggest that the unmarked car is now, quite definitely, marked. I also suspect that a certain silver 5 series BMW might be making its way to the auction room quite soon. After all, every crim in the area now knows it's a cop car!
