On "Blues and Twos", From wikipedia:The origin of the 'rossers' as this has been used many times by May. Richard Hammond's comment about 'blues and twos'.
The origin of the phrase comes from the fact the lights are blue and the siren previously was a two-tone horn, although now most emergency services use a gradated siren.
Not sure on rossers. I think that it might some be something like:
Police car (which looks like a) raspberry jam sandwich (shortened to) raspberry jam (shortened to) rassers (and ultimately) rossers. But I'm guessing.
