    PCs Andy Jackson and Andy Clarke deal with a man who has a brake light out, only to be rudely interrupted by a shouty Range Rover driver wanting to get noticed. But he could live to regret his outburst when a background check reveals he has no insurance. The officers catch up with the outspoken driver, who proves his has no intention of coming quietly, throwing a string of insults at officers and barely letting them get a word in edge ways.

A Ford Fiesta has ploughed into another car at high speed, sending it spinning and leaving the elderly driver with serious head injuries. To make matter worse, the occupants of the Fiesta flee the scene. But the crash has been captured on CCTV, showing the terrifying moment of impact.

As PC Brian Camsell tries to catch up with them, one car crashes. As Brian reads the riot act to the bashful boy racer he gets more than he bargained for.

    In North Tyneside, PC Jan Simlesa does a double take with a suspected drug driver – he's arrested the familiar felon before.

But it's the drugs test which brings him despair and leaves Jan teaching him a lesson.

    On patrol in Sunderland, PCs Will Hunter and Mary-Anne Hutchison are comparing their policing styles, when Mary-Anne's copper's nose kicks in at the sight of a Ford Fiesta seemingly spooked by their cop car.

A roadside breathalyser reveals a shocking result.

    PC Marc Crammond has a number one pet peeve: drivers talking on their mobile phones. As he spots one chatty driver and pulls him over, Marc sees a phone in the passenger footwell, but the man claims to have no idea how it got there. The stop turns into a standoff, but as Marc delves deeper into his driving history, making a call on the move is the least of this motorist's worries.

    In Sunderland, PC Will Hunter and PC Mary-Anne Hutchison don't like the look of a car that's seen better days. As the driver pulls in to get his tyres checked, he spots the cops, ditches his wheels and makes off on foot. But he's no match for Will and Mary-Anne who soon catch up with this slippery customer. But what does he have to hide?

    A force-wide hunt for two stolen cars leads Jan, Marc and Jamie to the seaside town of Whitley Bay. As Jamie goes it alone up against one suspected car thief, Jan and Marc race to back up their fellow officer. Once they have the suspect in cuffs, Jan and Marc turn detective and get help from the owner of the stolen cars to track down the remaining vehicle. But as they close in, what will be waiting for them?
