YouTuber BaronVonGrumble has a veritable tantrum when he spots yet another motorcyclist wearing a deceptive vest.

In the streets of England, some bikers have taken to wearing vests that look a whole lot like police-issued gear, but instead say "Polite" on them. The biker in the video rides up to give a closer view of this irritating trend:

It's apparently caused a lot of discussion in England from those who hate it and those who love it, but they all ground their opinions in the same obvious point — these vests make people around them think the rider is a police officer on duty. That's also called 'impersonating a police officer'.

What makes it even worse is that all of these is actually legal for some reason.

If you love being insufferable, you can buy one for £35.

The other thing you can learn from this video is just how crazily all motorcyclists drive on the other side of the pond (as well as the other side of the road). In between lanes, around lanes, telling people gas caps are open, checking who's smoking pot, it's all a fascinating travelogue complete with a sizzling, acerbic rant.
