Since we're talking in the context of minor offenses like speeding you gotta know that the consequences of trying to run and getting caught are far far worse than a couple of points and a fine.



So ya gotta ask yourself, "Do ya feel lucky. Well, do ya? Punk?"



I get a speeding ticket about every two years. I take my medicine and pay up. It ain't worth a felony evading rap.

They also were days when the penalties for every thing under the sun weren't so nasty. These days the stuff we did as teenagers that only got us a lecture and a ride home would get you locked in jail and forced to see a shrink.

I have some great stories about very dangerous things. Just because it wasn't safe or wise doesn't mean it's not a great story.



I don't think he's looking for tips on how to run. I think he just wants to have a discussion about it and understand it, and that's what the internet is all about. Just because I know that people have run from the police and succeeded doesn't mean I'm going to do it.

I honestly cant believe this topic was brought up...I had an experience like this today. I'm traveling down a road in my jurisdiction when my radar pops two vehicles at 10 over...they pass me, and instead of slowing down like normal people do, i see the first truck accelerating away from the second truck. i hit rear radar and the guys accelerating ..11,12,13,14 over... up and up. i turn around, lights, siren. vehicle made two rights trying to lose me... unlucky for him his friend in the second vehicle was slower and i caught a glimpse of him turning. i pulled in between him banged the first guy. asked him where he was going, and it happened to be in the opposite direction of where he turned...laughed at him asking him why he was trying to get away, but he couldn't answer. another one for the good guys...
