The group highlighted the aging design of the 6623s had some serious shortcomings when compared with contemporary cars available on the commercial market.
“The reality is that the fleet of cars available to us are slower, offer very limited protection and lack anything more than two-way radio. The cars which serious criminals are using are literally streets ahead when it comes to outmanoeuvring pursuers.”
The group went as far as blaming the deaths of a number of police officers on the car design. The officers perished because the car had a tendency to lose control on sharp bends when travelling fast they claimed.
The Home Office meanwhile has responded to clarify that it will take into account the group’s views when filing its forthcoming budget request to central government.
