Police were called by a member of the public on Tuesday, September 17, after he reported being pulled over by what he believed was a ‘fake’ police car in Kings Road, Horsham, at about 9pm.
The motorist noticed the blue BMW behind him after it flashed blue lights. He stopped his vehicle and the BMW pulled alongside him before driving off, again flashing its lights.
Sergeant Bob Trevis, who is based at Horsham said: “We will investigate to see if there’s anything we should be concerned about and enquiries will be made to make sure there were no offences.
“Our advice to the public would be to continue to react as if a police car was stopping them but ensure they take measures to make sure they’re safe.
“If they are concerned it would be routine for the police officer to get out of their vehicle and approach the person they’ve stopped.”
