A British man earned a sentence of three-and-a-half years in prison thanks to this run from the bobbies, where he hit 90 mph and dodged an oncoming train at a closed crossing. Jason Statham would look impressed if he could.

Police in Cambridgshire say Terence Fowler, 20, led them on a high-speed chase in a stolen Mercedes C180, managing several close calls including one involving a closed train crossing that smacked their gobs enough to call off the pursuit. The car was found abandoned following the chase in June 2010, but Fowler had left blood stains inside — enough to lead to his eventual arrest and incarceration. The Brits may be fast, but they're too restrained to be furious.
