In an attempt to curb the ever growing criminal activities of the elderly,italian police have armed themselves with specially outfitted patrol vehicles.No longer are wheelchair and walking cane laden assailants safe with this new weapon.:)
My Alfa has gone, and I think I have probably seen it for the last time.
Some guy in a Peugeot pulled straight out onto me on a round-about, result, my passenger side meeting his drivers side.

I pulled onto the A1 behind a Volvo S60, no markings, no lights, no extra aerials etc. I followed it for around 4 miles keeping back at speeds of around 80-90mph.

Slovenian Police got a brand new Alfa 156 GTA. :)

I guess it's the first time I can't wait to see a police car on the road :D
Our country sure has some good taste :)
