If you have suspicions or genuine concerns about an unmarked car which is indicating for you to pull over, you can call 999 as the police can check if one of their cars is stopping you.
Drive at a reduced speed to the nearest public place, such as a petrol station, police station or somewhere well-lit, and try not to stop anywhere secluded.
Do not speed away but instead signal that you have acknowledged their request to stop and indicate the action you are taking, such as putting on your hazards lights and pointing from the driver's window to where you are heading.
Keep the doors locked until you are happy it is the police - you can ask to see the police officer's warrant card through the closed window, which should carry their name and picture, and check this with the force’s control room by calling 999.
A genuine police officer will always take the time to reassure you of their identity.
