Pascal, it was a type error. Should read: "Were there police officers in that car?" Furthermore, it were no speculations. It were questions.

Thanks Insp K for your steadfast 'investigation' of events yet again. What would we do without you?

"Were is police officers in that car?Or some male influentials.." The usual speculations based on nothing.Crazy! Better spend some time to  improve your English language skills.

Speed-speed-speed. Driving faster than they can think. Thinking?  No police info at all about this happening? No  names, no details. Spooky and funny.  Were is police officers in that car? Or some male influentials on the road after late illegal bar closing time?
