Few days ago on my normal commute to downtown, its ussually busy as hell so whenever I get some free road, I floor to 140 km/h (speed limit is 90 km/h). This is really a nice road with wide curves for 15 kms. So I ran into a black oldsmobile on the left lane, he is driving at 110, I highbeam the guy tell him get out of my way, but he deos'nt listen, then I tail gate him for awhile just to piss him off, still does'nt get the point (the right line was busy at the time). I noticed I had some room on the right lane to take over him so I did, zoomed by him 165. After like 10 sec then I see in my back mirror the guy in his oldsmobile speeding up, so I slowed down, maybe he wants to race or something. But this guy pulls right beside me at 110 km/h, with police badge in his hand, shouting pull over. I knew he was off duty police officer, but I gave him an experssion like I did'nt know what was going on. I got back to my cruesing speed of 140, now he behind me giving me the highbeams, trying to make his oldsmobile look at cop car. Now he does'nt have computer or radar on him it was'nt a cop car, probably does'nt even have tickets on him, but I realize its not worthy pulling over (cause he can call another to give me a ticket). He can't really prove much in court of law if I were to just run away from him, so I did. All he had was my lience plate (plus my car is'nt registered under my name). This bastard followed me for quite some time ( I already missed my exit), he knew i was'nt was'nt going to exit so he took his exit and left. I expecting a call from this guy, but still without any evidence he can't prove much.

Pretend pig out for some carjacking..... I don't blame you, I wouldn't stop either.

The funniest one (and quite dodgy) I ever pulled was when I was 17 and had just got my licence. I was out with a mate driving around at a bit of speed, having a laugh when we passed a cop at way over the limit.

He started to chase us and we couldn't get away. I pulled into a small lane and made maybe 20 seconds on them and then pulled over.....

..... once stopped, we both got into the back of the car and waited for the police. Police turn up and say "who was driving?"

"Sorry officer, I claim my European human right to silence and to not provide evidence against myself."

"Well, who's car is it?"

"*Silence*" (it was registered in my dad's name)

"Can I see your documents lads?"

"What? I'm a passenger, I'm not in charge of the car"

"Okay, lads.......... eerrrm....... we'll wait here until one of you has to drive off."

10 minutes later and they had gone! We just sat there laughing at them from the back of the car until they left.

Don't try this if there is even the slightest defect on your car .....or they'll arrest you for poor wiper blades or empty screen wash!

the SC just ruled you must provide identification when told by a police officer, regardless of who is driving the car.

I agree with it, why shouldn't we be expected to tellem' who we are if they wanna know. It slows everything down and messes up the system if people make it hard like that. Sry if that was off-topic. Good story guys ... i doubt i'd have the balls to do the same.

I don't think it took balls ....... just impetuous youthful behaviour in my case.

I know the rules are different in the states but you can't have your car searched if everything is locked can you?

UK police are okay with you if you are okay with them, if you piss them off then they make it their life's work to have you enjoy a night in the cells. (They do a good job on balance)
