The BBC reports that seven police forces in England have given company cars with blue lights and sirens to civilian staff not trained to use them.
The seven forces which said they had were Devon and Cornwall, Merseyside, Humberside, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, Avon and Somerset, and Greater Manchester Police.
The main recipients were finance directors, although human resources and IT directors have also benefited.
It seems, according to one tax expert, the recipients could save thousands of pounds in tax each year as emergency vehicles are treated differently by HMRC.
However, the forces said the vehicles were part of their wider fleet, and denied they were provided for tax reasons.
Tax does have to be taxing.
