CD cars are diplomatic vehicles.

I believe they are 'immune' to traffic offences and have certain benefits with regard road tax etc.

Some of them are left hand drive as the embassy use their 'national; cars.

SXX01CD is the one designated as highest rank in the embassy ie Ambassador.

hi bro
You may find 2 different types of plates, CD, and CC. CD belong to the embassies and I think CC belong to consulates. Consulates do not necessarily enjoy full diplomatic immunity, including the honorary consuls (HC) or consulate generals in some. Also, a local resident appointed in his/her home country as a consul general, may not enjoy immunity either. Usually the said immunity apply to a foreigner appointed to a host country, and the host country's head provides the immunity. Something like that, imho.

Well looks like everything has been answered except for one question.

Nope, the vehicles are not given. They are exempt from COE etc, however, the cost of the vehicle is borne by the embassy, high commission etc.

If there's no state flag up, then they can be stopped. However if the driver has got diplomatic immunity, even TP also LL cannot do anything (except maybe bar the guy from driving if he's drunk).

Like I said. If the driver has got diplomatic immunity, there's nothing much that we can do even if they don't pay.

poor cop must have been invited to drink coffee...

S CD cars are best avoided on the road. although they will take precautions not to break local laws, these guys enjoy legal immunity as a trust that they will conduct themselves well in their host country. some embassies require their staff to pay parking fines etc, while others may not.

that said, if they do commit a serious crime (murder, rape, etc) the host country can request the other country to waive the diplomat's immunity and charge him/her to the full extent of local laws.

nope, the police was issuing summons to all cars along the same road and they didn't hesitant to place one on the S CD car. they just walked off after placing it on the windscreen.

i was standing there, kaypo-ing ard.....

then a while later, one ang mo couple came along, and the guy saw the summon, took it, read it and put into pocket and both went into the S CD car.

so i not sure if the ang mo guy is immune to our traffic law or not.
