Yet your reply completely ignores the extremely valid point I made. Everyone secures their prisoners. What about people who aren't prisoners????

I don't see why half cages aren't more popular... How often are there two prisoners/passengers in the back seat? I don't see it often if ever around here.

Half cage leaves enough room for a prisoner in right rear seat and also lets you have full mobility to move the driver seat back and reclined if you want too (no not in a "gangsta lean" but I am 6'3" and the cage limits seat travel in a lot of cars).

The new PIs I saw in Cornwall were fitted with half cages and the guys loved them. If smaller cars are going to become the norm in policing I can see the half cages getting pretty popular.

Tell the CBSA that...

Well, prior to the no transport policy that is!

Meh, if you average it out...look at most multi-lane highways. You've got 50% of Lane 3 occupied by assholes doing 95km/h and passing no one, 75% of Lane 2 occupied by assholes doing 104km/h and passing the assholes in Lane 3, and 75% of Lane 1 occupied by assholes doing 106km/h and passing Lane 2. Then you gotta factor in a couple assholes threading the needle at 160, add a few more assholes that can't work their signals or use their mirrors....man, thats a lot of assholes. If they're on a highway in southern Ontario, chances are they're an asshole.

I was driving home from work last night and was almost run to the guard rails by two tractor-trailers because those assholes think it's necessary to do 102 km/hr passing somebody who's doing 100km/hr and cut you off to do it. I hate truckers! :banghead:

Not sure who you're responding to there.

I agree with Meathead...we often, he far more than I, would stop on the highway with folks who shouldn't be there, whether for a breakdown, pedestrian etc. There are times we don't arrest people, and when we offer them a ride. Not everyone on the side of the highway is an asshole at first blush..

It's a valid point.


Valid for sure. I was only responding to the one post and not the whole issue. Of course there are other situations to consider. Is the lack of a more ridged partition a safety concern? Yes. Do I want the airbag to deploy properly. Yes. Take each situation as it comes and do what you need to do to be as safe as you can. Our service has decided to go with the spit shield vs a more ridged solution. No need to discuss tactics here but on the other side it may make a good thread.

That smarmy_rebel idiot. He's still pretending he's on the job with CBSA by commenting about things he knows nothing about. Was hiding in the shadows for a bit. Wish he'd go back and take SourSkittles with him.
