Abstract: Police officers' actions and decisions must both be legal and appear legal. The uniform or the vehicle is an indispensable accessory for a police officer. That is why the police officer cannot become involved in unlawful activities either as a cause or only as an innocent participant. If a broken police car is dragged along the busiest streets of the city or along the country, it makes no difference to spectators that the car's damage or malfunction is the result of the driver's past mistake or the vehicle's breakdown. The spectator concludes that the police are not superior to others, although they should be better drivers. The author is a section head at the Institute National of Criminalistics and Criminology
