In reply to Rusty_Rabbit84: For clarity I'm adding that these comments are aimed at the people in the video, not Wusty_the Wascaly_wabbit

OK we all speed from time to time and when we get caught take your medicine.

Running from the Cops is a dumb idea, I've never done it but know people who have and (luckily in my mind) failed - BTW they had to sell the car to pay the fine.

Running from the Cops and getting away with it is dumb luck, don't push it A-hole

Running from the Cops, zig zaging through traffic at god knows what speed, getting away with it them posting your bragging story on YouTube…….Please tell me they've just incriminated themselves and can now be prosecuted up the zing zang. I hate that level of arrogance, I want at least the driver behind bars and the car auctioned off. Even better if he doesn't own the car and now has to pay the owner back.

Arrogant bastard.

Eh. If you know the penalties for felony evasion (not counting reckless driving and any other traffic charges you accumulate during your pursuit, not to mention the original offense) and you chose to run you are certainly taking your chances. Felony evasion carries a minimum sentence of a year in prison.
Police have radios, helicopters, airplanes, unmarked cars, etc.

Having said that, like all other crimes, its not illegal till you get caught.

These guys are obviously in some sort of race or something, to have all the support and etc that they have in place. And quite honestly, I don't know how fast they were traveling in the first place, but if youre going 100 MPH plus its likely youre gonna be arrested and charged with reckless endangerment or other crimes anyway. Not a felony, but still pretty serious.

Sorry, the video not you, I didn't mean to indicate you at all. I don't blame you at all. I'll edit my post to make that more clear.

Well, went to the website that's flashed at the end of the video. There's a "meet the super speeders" page with a little bio for this douchenozzle:

On two occasions in my life I've been caught speeding by LEOs going the opposite direction on the same road. Both times, they were certain I was going to run, and I'm pretty sure I could have evaded them, but I could never live with that, so I pulled over at the next side road and parked on the shoulder. By the time they got turned around and came tear-assing after me, I would be parked and standing by the car. The fact that I had a clear head start and a quicker car, but didn't capitalize on it seemed to garner some degree of respect with them, and I got off with warnings both times.

We've all heard the old saying: You can outrun the cop car, but you'll never outrun that Motorola radio.

Why not go to the track? If you want to drive fast just get on a closed course. I'm guess I'm old. I don't see the point....

His parents must be so proud of the way he uses his allowance.

From listening to the conversation in the video, I think the whole thing may have been a setup. You never see any cops, then toward the end they say the cop was after someone else anyway. Still stupid though.

Dumbass... He'll be the next one you read about killing someone else making his berkeleying superspeeder bull E36 M3 movies. That wasn't even exciting to watch at all... My guess is he isn't on track because he has no balls.

I dunno, he didnt really do anything more dangerous than talking on a cell phone, doing your makeup, eating a donut, or whatever, and he kept the stupid cops from raking in more dough for shooting fish in a barrel. Maybe if more people ran and made it harder they would do more real police work.

You actually do see the cop off to the left at the beginning of the video when the radar detector starts going crazy. Only spot though. They didn't use a very good hiding spot either, seemed pretty open to me.

That's a good way to make it so that you can't drive your car on the streets ever again. It's not exactly a low profile car.

Yeah, that's a V1 and it's saying LASER tag. I know the sound well. I couldn't really tell what was going on with the radio. Was the cop following? And you know that cops have CB's also, if that's what that was, so they can listen in and hear what exit he's taking too.

Definitely.

I mean, it was exciting to watch, but all that would be ruined if they killed someone during their "fun".

High speed stuff like that makes way more sense on a deserted freeway at 4AM--and even then it's silly.

Dumbasses like that think they got away because they're such good drivers. What they don't realize is that police will often terminate a chase because it's too dangerous to bystanders to continue it.

Running from the cops makes you a dumbass

Running from the cops in an area where there are potentially innocent people makes you a jackass

I often listen to the cops on my HAM, I know how to drive and yet I always pullover. Hmmm, some of us were just raised better. After I began racing the other knuckleheads on the road actually began to scare me a lot more. In regards to Lt. Douchebag, he's the reason I believe we need fines based on someones income and assets like Germany so rich weenies can get fined enough so it hurts and poor schmoes don't have to drive with no insurance to get to work. Rant over.
