Are You Serious???
What happens to the brain when you're in a situation where the police want you to pull over, but because of warrants, or drugs in the vehicle, or drunk driving, or you just robbed a convenience store, or whatever, goes through the mind that convinces one that they can escape the police in a vehicle pursuit in urban area? It boggles the mind. A woman ended up dead this morning, thinking she could outrun the police. Sad, but crazy.

Well... fear plays a huge part in irrational behavior.

Outrunning the cops (with guns, no doubt) is pretty crazy. Undecided

I've done it. All it required was a more detailed knowledge of the neighborhoods back in the day.

There's a guy who is famous in the tiny town I grew up in for robbing the bank and trying to escape the police on a tractor. Well that's how the gossip went. I wonder if there's a news report. I should look it up!

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

If she only killed herself I'd say that's a great success.

My cousin whom I grew up with is currently in jail (only a year older than me) for stealing a car and leading the cops on a 200km chase.
It's New Zealand, where the fuck are you gonna run too?

I was the passenger on the back of a motorcycle fleeing from the police years ago. I never, ever want to do that again.

This is the Kill-Switch.

Flipping this instantly kills the engine, sort of like yanking the keys out of a car's ignition. It won't cause lose of control, it will simply cut engine power to the wheel.

(On a side note, this picture has to be of a mid-90's era Honda, as it's almost identical to what's on my 93' Nighthawk & 93' XR250L and my brother's 96' Magna Deluxe)

Do you expect criminals to just roll over for the police?

Thanks. kinda hard for the passenger to reach. I think it was a Magna, IIRC.
at 85 mph, down the center lane in town, with state police doing lights and sirens on our tail, I was holding on for dear life, with my eyes squeezed shut.

And back to Girly's comment. It helps to know where you are. We were stopped on a dead end street.....lucky to be alive.

One of those moments in life when you realize you are dating the wrong person.
