Look forward to 0.4 where the AI drivers are suppose to be much improved.
As for the tripping, it's usually me that's tripping. Run within 10ft of a PED and I trip. I found that keeping up with a Perp on foot though is all I can do. Thank god for backup and the tazer.

Are you using NVR? If yes, go into the dlcpacks in OpenIV and go into NVR emissives. Delete pranger.ytd, sheriff.ytd and firetruk.ytd.
This topic has been moved to the appropriate forum. Please post in the correct location in the future.

So I was told I was in the newspapers... looks like The Times has published an article about the British GTA5 police modding scene and my channel 😮
Was also kindly sent this picture of the article in the actual newspaper itself:
Page 11 of The Times 2 June 2018. Fantastic publicity for the whole community! 😀
The Times seems to have based their article on the original Wired UK article: http://www.wired.co.uk/article/gta-5-mods-lsdpfr-british-police

Here are cars used by the Swedish police through the years. Hope you will enjoy!
Up until 1965 the Swedish police were county managed, meaning agencies could use whatever vehicle or equipment they wanted. Many Swedish police agencies liked the American cars. Chevrolet was popular. The liveries were mostly plain black with a sign or door text saying POLIS, but other liveries such as green and black-and-white were also used.
1952 Plymouth Cranbrook:
1955 Buick Super:
In 1965 the Swedish police went from county managed to nationalized. All police agencies now started using the same vehicle fleet and with the same livery: black and white.
1964 Opel Admiral:
1965 Volvo Duett:
1965 Volvo PV 544:
1966 Plymouth Valiant:
1967 Volvo Amazon:
In 1970 the Swedish police started using blue "cherry-top" lightning instead of steady red lights used before. This change was because wanted to follow the European standard with blue lights, originally introduced by Heinrich Himmler during WW2 so emergency vehicles wouldn't be seen as easily from enemy airplanes. This change was criticised. You can compare the lightning in the the next two pics:
1969 Plymouth Valiant with pre-1970 lightning and 1974 Valiant with post-1970 blue lightning (yes, they're on!):
1970 Volkswagen 1500:
1972 Volkswagen Kombi:
1974 Dodge Tradesman:
1974 Volvo 144:
1976 Volvo 244:
1982 (?) Volkswagen Golf:
In 1984 the Swedish police decided they wanted to try change their whole image, with new fonts, logos and police car livery. They went with a futuristic style font and the black-and-white cars became white with yellow, blue, and black stripes on the side in the shape of a hockey stick, giving the livery its name "hockeyklubban". The colors in the stripe had some meaning; the yellow and blue meaning Sweden, and the black to "honor" the old black-and-white livery that most Swedes were used to when imaging the police.
The new livery was criticised by both the public and the police themselves due to the low visibility in traffic compared to the old black-and-whites. The plain white livery with glued on stripes were also planned to save money when taking the cars out of service but the glue stuck so the cars had to be re-painted anyway before being sold on the public market.
1983 Ford Econoline:
1984 Volvo 240:
1985 SAAB 900:
1988 SAAB 9000:
In 1989 "hockeyklubban" and the futuristic font were scrapped. All new police cars would from now on get a blue-and-white livery with a new text font. The font is the same still used.
1986 SAAB 900 CD:
1990 Chevrolet Beauville:
1990 Volvo 740:
1996 Volvo 940 Turbo:
SAAB 9000 CD:
