He really thought he was going to fake the policeman out with the u-u-turn.
Double-U (W) turn
The UwU turn?
Officer: "What's this?"
Criminal: “Notices your bulges”
Criminal: “ I’m sowwy wowwy fo twying to wun awa-“ gunshots
FUCKS SAKES, JENKINS, WHERE DID HE GO??
Do a 360 and walk away.
If you think you can outrun the patrol cars on the highway, you haven't played enough nfs most wanted 2005
Edit: holy smokes, 3k upvotes and an infinity stone? Thanks everyone
Doesn't matter what car you have... theirs are always just a touch faster (past level 2 anyway) lol
Son, let me tell about the radio, police station next town, and road spikes. Hard to outrun the radio.
You can outrun the motor but you can't outrun the motorola
This statement completes me.
Ikr.. i hate it when I'm flooring my modified carrera gt and then a crown Victoria overtakes and brake checks me
This is an apt metaphor for life generally
NANI, THAT MUSTANG CAN KEEP UP WITH MY BUGATTI?!
Those pursuit engines burn out easy, but boy do they burn out
Cops showing up in a corvette is the sign that you’re in pretty deep.
Nothing outruns police radio
Motorcycles frequently do
My wife is a trooper. In the academy they showed them videos of what happens when a motorcycle chase goes wrong. There isn’t much left of the motorcycle or it’s driver. More of the bike survives.
If no one believes this ^ poster. Look up Isle of Man TT deaths. 252 Deaths.
What is their policy on chasing bikes? I’m generally curious because a lot of people say police won’t do much if it’s a minor infraction but I always see plenty of videos of police trying to chase one bike who was speeding initially. They normally seem to keep trying too, even when it’s obvious the bike is far gone.
Probably depends on the police department and the cop. They have to know logically they aren't going to keep up with any 600cc supersport nevermind the 1000cc or higher supersports.
And with a turboed hayabusa they don't even bother to turn their lights on.
/s obviously. But they aren't catching it without a lot of support from other officers.
In Arizona, my buddy talks about how police won't give chase, but State Troopers will chase you forever. So it very much depends on the department.
Here in the UK they have a policy where they're not allowed to chase the biker if it could cause danger to life, for example if the rider doesn't have a helmet they won't engage in high speed pursuits, I think they changed it recently so they can knock bikers off at lower speeds because so many were taking advantage of this
They go after them, like anyone else. Also like anyone else if it gets dangerous they call it off. With bikes it tends to get dangerous more quickly, so they either don't chase and often try to get the plate and stop.
One of the corporals at my wife's station literally just started (read, just turned the lights on and was seconds into it) going after a motorcycle when the bike took off... And immediately went into the back of an 18 wheeler.
It partially depends on why they want to stop you. Didn't signal a lane change? They aren't going to pursue. Just shot somebody? They will chase.
Light as fuck car: exists
SUV Heavy: heard u talking shit
That SUV doesn't happen to be a Ford Explorer, huh?
If that game taught me anything, it's that if the cops ever chase me I need to find a bus depot
The good part of that is getting a 30 minute chase just by circling around the main highway lmao
God i loved that game
What kind of IDIOT tries to run from the police in a fucking Kia Forte?
Edit: Kia Rio. It’s been corrected many times.
The kind that thinks he can fake out a cop with a double U-turn.
Cop: Ohh shit, where'd he go?
"HE WAS JUST HERE!!!"
SQUAWK! - "Dispatch, you're not gonna believe this..."
"All units be advised this driver could be going in any direction. ANY DIRECTION, over!"
The snozberries taste like snozberries!
They'll never catch me meow!
Call in the helicopter
That's why it's called the O turn.
He’s listing lazily to the left!
a double U-turn.
Ah, the elusive O-turn
Nah, that's just an O
About the only idiots that get away with this in south florida are people with motorcycles. But even then it's stupid to run from the police. They have this advanced technology called dispatch, that somehow is able to send a shit metric ton of more cops into the area. Bonus points if there is a helicopter involved. Because we all know you can outrun helicopters. /s
All of which takes time to mobilize though. I think the old statistic of "you have 60 seconds from the start of a chase to establish a consistent break of line of sight with pursuers to have any hope of escape" after that odds essentially go to zero.
Reddit will remember this
Pretty sure I was about to get pulled over once as a kid (cop had been on my ass for a few blocks, but no lights) when we came up to yellow light and I zipped between two cars and made the light, but the cars stopped and trapped him in the inside lane.
Also know I got radared once on the freeway going about 15 over and they were using the old one cop using the gun and another pulling people over a half mile down the road, so I just exited and pulled into a neighborhood.
Both of those could just as easily be me being paranoid though, so who knows
Not to mention if you escape they'll just find you later... Like oh hey, there's that motorcycle wanted for evading police sitting at that store/wherever, let's impound it and arrest this ass.
Unfortunately he didn’t know the 707HP 6.2L Supercharged HEMI will burn a full tank of fuel in 13 minutes at wide open throttle. Source- hellcat owner
What kind of monster links to a 50 minute video?
What a fucking ride
I had no idea the hellcat would burn that much gas, I guess it makes sense though. My only frame of reference is a honda civic
Haha, well it’s hard to drive it at wide open throttle for more then a 30 seconds. However when my cruise control is set at 62-70 mph my fuel consumption is roughly 11-13 litres per 100km, for frame of reference my Honda Odyssey at the same speed would be around 7-11 per 100km. So as you can see, if driven modestly it’s actually not that bad. I also have the manual 6 speed in the hellcat so it’s fuel consumption is supposed to be slightly worse then the automatic 8 speed which has an ECO mode.
I know it's a dick move to run from the chopper but it is delightful to see someone do it successfully. Seems like most people crash out after doing something stupid, but this guy kept threading through traffic again and again.
Sometimes it's satisfying to see someone just get away with some shit (well for a little while).
Guy does like 120+ on probably a 40-50 road . . . so stupid like you said, but exciting to watch.
Most police have a policy that if the biker is doing something like speeding or minor not to chase. I ride but I wouldn't have the balls to run off.
Dude ive played a lot of gta. It cant be any harder than 5 stars and ive escaped that in one piece.
I wish I had that confidence.
Presumably the same one that’s running in this Kia Rio.
Rio, forte. Both trash vehicles that aren’t good for running from the police.
What kind of idiot thinks he can run from the police in any car? Like, how many car chases ever succeed?
There's a video going round of a chase with a Dodge demon, it put up a good fight but eventually lost due to running out of petrol.
If you’re referring to the white one, it’s a hellcat not a demon. Demons have the widebody kit standard, where as this white one is the narrow body version. If you are talking about a different video then my apologies.
On a motorcycle you can easy depending on where you are, and what you are on.
And many places cops won't even give chase to bikers because they may get themselves killed in the pursuit.
Should watch the video of the female running in a scion XB. Was some good recoveries lol.
That thing has got to be like 8-9 seconds 0-60 and they think they are going to outrun a v8 charger. The sub name fits.
One that has been watching too many stars in reasonably priced cars?
I really don’t understand people who try evade the police anymore, i would understand if we were in the 1970-2000 but with todays technology don’t they think it’s just a dumb way to increase sentence?
Maybe he's trying to ingest something in the car, and they need more time? You would think people should know better but...
A lot of municipalities have restrictions on chases, since the danger to the public often outweighs the positive results. Maybe they're hoping for that. But more likely is that the driver has a warrant and arrest means certain jail and/or prison time and another few months for evading is worth the risk (to them).
A few more months?
For a foot chase maybe. Evading with a vehicle, while doing stupid shit like this, is a felony in most places. That'll add years.
I knew a guy who evaded the police before. He knew the backroads pretty well and knew a lot of people in the area to hide on their property. But essentially, that car was out of commission. He didnt drive it ever, took the plates off and kept the car hidden under a tarp. And overall just constantly tried to avoid run-ins where his name would be run.
Didnt seem worth it at all. Gained temporary freedom for constant paranoia and hassle.
Some members of my family decided to street race. Cop saw them on the other side of a highway median and hopped it. They raced home & into the garage. Cop was circling the neighborhood looking for them.
Surprisingly they ended up getting away with it.
One got caught a few months later from a youtube video of a different incident however.
Freedom, probably the thing more people on this planet have died for than anything else. Until yours is removed, you can’t understand the motivation of someone evading to keep it.
"They say a man never really knows himself... until his freedom's been taken away. I wonder... how well do you know yourself?"
People legitimately do still get away with it a lot, just not in a Kia Rio in broad fucking daylight on a long straight highway. People successfully evading police in/on vehicles is literally like a whole YouTube genre. Especially sport bikes - I've known a lot of those guys who just ride without license plates or with them bent up and unreadable and have a more or less blanket "I don't stop for cops" policy. A $2500 Craigslist liter bike with a competent rider on it can go from 55 to 150 before you can even finish calling it on the radio, and most cop cars are maxing out at like 130 maybe, and it's going to take them 30 seconds to get to that speed, and they can't split traffic like a bike can, and they often won't bother chasing either due to policy or just plain not wanting to deal with it.
In a car it's a lot harder but people still do it if they're fast enough and running with no plates or fake/stolen plates. A lot of people will soft-run too. See a speed trap too late, gun it instead of slowing down, and try to be off the next exit and gone before they can catch up from a stop. Personally I wouldn't ever try to keep running once they're behind me with the lights on, but if I see a chance to get away without digging my hole too much deeper I'll take it. Have definitely dodged a few speeding tickets before by hammering it around a bend and taking an off ramp while they were still pulling out of the median.
Edit: really good example of soft running here. Technically he didn't actually break any laws aside from speeding and not signaling or whatever, but is still 100% evading a state trooper that clocked him at 80 or 90 and was trying to catch up.
Like my department, we would never chase a sports bike or a motorcycle. We can't pit the vehicle or lay spike strips. It's a typically write it up as eluding and it'll attach a warrant to the plate and/or person if they were dumb enough to drive recklessly without a helmet. Most motorcycle eluding is just waiting for them to spill and find them later.
Exactly. The dudes I've known that do that sort of shit ride cheaply plastidipped bikes with a full face helmet and no plates or bent plates. If anything gets too ridiculous they'll peel the bike and buy a different colored helmet and that's about the end of it.
A buddy of mine used to commute daily on a GSXR that had no plates and technically belonged to the bank that was trying to repo it from the original owner who then reported it stolen and gave it to him to keep for a while. Just rode in cheap gear he could replace if he got lit up and had to book it, but ended up never having to deal with it because a cop sees a liter bike with no plates on it and they just don't bother. Could write five texting and driving tickets in the time it would take to deal with a failed pursuit and a pile of paperwork.
In a car it's damn near impossible. On a bike, it's very doable, borderline easy.
Even more so because there is no even remotely safe way to stop a motorcycle without killing the driver.
UK Police have developed a new tactic for just that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtoKz1FLVh8 lol :D (and no need to feel bad for the moped drivers, they brutally attack delivery drivers to steal their mopeds and then use the mopeds to rob people).
This looks like it works great at low speeds, but what about at chase speeds? I can't see how doing that to someone at 90 mph+ wouldn't kill them.
Edit: I'm dumb and didn't read all the way through. Parent comment is referring to mopeds, which obviously can't go above like 30-40mph. I assumed they were talking about full-size motorcycles. My mistake.
Often times people can get away with it in a big city, if the watch commander thinks it’s too risky and has the potential for loss of civilian life they’ll call it off. There are a lot of factors to determine this such as officer demeanor, level of traffic, time of day.
If it's a stolen car, they just have to get out of sight for a second. Then they can ditch the car and disappear.
Just need to lose them long enough to get into a Pay N' Spray
The police don’t want you to know that 1/3rd get away.
Even now. So you tell me.
I've only seen two videos where the guy gets away. One was a 'ghost car' scenario where it ran through a chainlink fence in such a way that it seemed he passed through it without touching it.
The other was a guy on a dirtbike who just took to the woods. Cop ended up stuck on a train track while trying to chase him.
For some reason I remember this video having a song to it - Nightcall maybe
It was sampled in Kavinsky's "Pacific Coast Highway"
I think The fence just bent down as the ghost car drove over and sprung back up before the camera caught it
No, much more likely that it's a ghost car.
Or the bottom of the fence wasn’t hooked into the ground and the car pushed through and went right under it. Not exactly mind blowing lol
Wouldn't the police officer see that and follow, though? Or if they didn't, wouldn't they inspect the fence afterwards and realize there was a way to go through it (and therefore not call it a "Ghost Car")?
Almost certainly. But that doesn't mean the news would report the follow up where they learned this.
Ummmm... that dirt bike thing happens a lot. There are whole compilations of it happening
Righto, but do they often end up with a cop car stuck on a train track? ;p
Nah, they usually stop before the woods. Basically a lost cause if the guy’s made it that far anyway
There's shit loads of bikers who evade cops.
My favorite ever is where they're chasing some guy on a hyper-bike, the squad cars call to the helicopter for a visual, and the helo pilot had to sheepishly admit that he's "lost visual". From a helicopter lol.
Bruh I remember watching the chain link fence video on TV way back in like 2003 and I thought they were ghosts
There was a motorcyclist in Greenville, SC who escaped cops. Posted the video online and was caught that way.
Lol if you’re in any economy car just give up.
Even if you had the exact same engine as the Explorer Interceptor, you’d lose because your gearing is probably made to make you 50 miles a gallon.
There’s is made for the chase.
Most cop cars are really not as fast as people think they are. They don't have stronger engines or shorter gearing - the drivetrain is totally stock. What they actually have on those is stronger/higher suspension for driving over curbs, and about 400 extra pounds of gear weighing them down.
Flat outrunning a cop car is honestly not that hard if you're driving anything resembling a sports car on a curvier road. Outrunning the radio, all of the other cops ahead of you, and (if it goes on too long) a helicopter is the trouble with it.
Also there are automatic license plate readers and cameras everywhere. And the ability to search through that mountain of data is only going to get better with time.
Yep. Soft running is still viable most places if the situation is right, but the only people getting away from a real chase anymore are the ones who are going out without plates on specifically trying to bait one.
Bike guys do this shit a lot and regularly get away with it because when a cop sees a sport bike with no plate on it they often won't even bother since they know it's not going to stop anyway and chasing it only makes things more dangerous. I legitimately have seen a case where a dude rode around all night on an unplated super bike on slicks with an honest to god donut dangling from the tail.
Bald cop does a great job of backing his partner.
The stupid other cop keeps walking in front of bald cop's sight and firing line though. Bald cop does a good job not sweeping the other cop.
i don’t think stupid other cop realized there was a passenger until he already crossed bald cop so that’s why he crossed him again
would make more sense for him to keep on the direction he's going and let his backup cover the passenger.
Would makes sense for the officer in the back to re-position himself than the officer in the front to constantly look back and keep track of the the officer behind him.
Edit: Never mind. Just saw the clip once more. He cuts him off and is all over the place.. My bad.
Does the cop on the right forget he has a partner? He’s running in there like a one man show, all while stepping right into the line of a loaded gun multiple times. Good thing his partner has a bigger brain than he does.
Police chases are #1 on my list of things I miss most about no longer living in Southern California.
Many news channels stream them on their Facebook pages.
I never thought I’d hear the words “satisfying” and “crash” in the same sentence.
Thats a Text book maneuver right there
I'm surprised they did it at such a high speed. I always thought it should only be done at low speeds due to the high chance of injury (like slamming head on into a tree)
This maneuver is considered use of deadly force in America because it can be so dangerous.
I liked how the police had to wait until they passed that one car on the highway to PIT. Those extra thousand or so feet were the difference between guardrail and minor injuries and OH FUCK ALL MY BONES
Is that an Atlanta Falcons sticker?
When this was previously posted somebody pointed out the cop in the rear had great gun control while his partner had terrible awareness of his own partner.
Honestly amazed at the muzzle control of the guy with the pistol. Shotgun dude needs to stop walking in front of him like a dildo.
