German police caught this guy... Mobile office with laptop, printer, inverter, and whatever else...... This in a country where talking on a cell phone and driving can cost you a driver license suspension.

Agreed.

It looks like your typical cop car but those guys can use all of their stuff as well as their cell phone while driving 90+ MPH on the way to the donut shop.
