You ask/you answer: Should I ever try to out-run the police?

You ask, you answer: Should I ever try to out-run the police? A friend of mine claims to have out-run the police who attempted to catch him when he was speeding on a dual carriageway. I think he's telling the truth. I ride a Blackbird, and must admit I'd be tempted to gas it if I thought they hadn't got my...

Childhood

It is strange I grew up in what I would like to think was a good family environment. I knew right from wrong. Do not steal, protect the weak, help old ladies etc. But also I witnessed many incidents that made me dislike the police. One vehicle related incident I remember was an officer pulling over my friend for a spot check (who is quiet as a mouse to this day) and breaking the side skirt off of his 2 month old Fiesta RS Turbo, then saying you should get that fixed!

Respect is earned, it does not come with a badge (or plasticard)

Please dont.

I cant face another crap series on I.T.V where the plod are given airtime to big up how clever they are chasing people around the roads . The only time I want to see the police on the TV is on the news when rioters are bricking them.

Show us your facts please..... cuz I think you are a little bit confused. If speed is such a big factor then why do the police break the safety limits?

Danger... idiots at the helm...

What a totally ridiculous and stupid question.

Can't believe that this one slipped past the editorial filter onto the website.

WTF were you thinking MCN?

No. Don't be an idiot. Three points vs. a lost license and possible jail time? What are you thinking?

Theoretical situation:

You are getting a move on down a single or dual carraigeway and a cop car or bike comes the other way and flashes his headlights at you and motions you to stop or pull over as he passes you going in the opposite direction.

What do you do? ........Carry on and get lost fast knowing he has little chance of turning around and then catching you, or do you comply with the officers request and pull over to wait for him to come back and nick you ?

Theres only one answer really ;)

stooopid question

I agree It is a dumb ass question for MCN to ask.  I've only been stopped once on my blade.  (the first ride out after the insuurance cleared)  I was on my way home and it was why are you riding slowly and have you thought about bikesafe?  Touch wood no trouble after that.  If your misbehavin' 'fess up and take the hit.  Always worse if you try and run.  lol watched tooo much CSI :p

180mph

So the Audi A5 was used by Criminals ... at least 16 times before they were captured by police during a high speed chase. So the moral of this story is ...........?
