    The radios have always been faster than any car.

    I've been kind of stymied by the move to Chargers for police cars these days. Used to be I could spot a Crown Vic 10 miles away in a fog on a moonless night, but now it takes a few hundred yards of closing before I spot them.

    Not that I condone fleeing from the police.

    1. Don't speed boys and girls.

    2. If you do use a quality radar detector.

    I run with a Valentine V 1, even in Virginia :devil:

    If you do get pulled over don't run, pull far off the road so the officer is away from traffic and be respectful and polite. You will be surprised just how many tickets you do not get and you will have a nice collection of warnings. :ihih:

    In the old days you just needed a car that was faster and handled better than the police cars. Now there is nothing faster than a radio.

    Not that I condone fleeing from the police.

    Two cave men sitting in their cave beating on rocks, one of them looks up after a bit and says: "You know Ogg, they ain't never gonna have radio".

    It is amazing the stupid decisions that people make when they are under pressure. An idiot in south Jersey stole $5.00 worth of candy got himself arrested, ended up with a long list of charges against him and forfeited the $6,000.00 of cash he had on him.

    LOL, that is like 3 doors down from a friends house. Coincidentally, that is the same intersection that I had some chick cut the corner and took the front end of my TT off.
