An alleged street racer meetup in Los Angeles turned deadly this weekend when undercover California Highway Patrol officers shot and killed the driver of a truck they say turned and drove toward them after a pursuit. The truck’s passenger was also injured by gunfire.
The collection of muffler shops and strip clubs collectively known as “Fresno” is known for many things, but a healthy and active unicorn population is not one of them. That’s why it was so surprising that CHP officers spent three hours chasing a rogue unicorn in the area.
A few days ago, the California Highway Patrol tweeted out this pretty remarkable picture of their precision driving team in formation with what I can only assume is a precision flying helicopter. I don't think I— or most Californians — ever realized they had a precision driving team.
And now, it's time for your daily dose of vehicle-related D'AWWWW! Officers with the California Highway Patrol are being praised for rescuing a tiny chihuahua off Interstate 680 on Friday. An adorable tiny chihuahua to boot!
The San Francisco Giants may not engender the kind of rabid fan base as do New York's Yankees or the Boston Red Sox, but as today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe homage Mustang proves, there are still those who demonstrate that fan is derived from fanatic.
The gentlemen on this site — like most gentlemen anywhere — seem to have a Sofia Vergara fixation. So what's with the guy giving her a ticket? If Vergara isn't above the law, maybe no one is.
If you happen to be an extrovert, like say, Charlie Sheen, then an SSP Mustang in full CHP livery might be the perfect car for you. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe ‘92 EVOC is just such a car, although I think Charlie'd be more comfortable in back.
Robert Andrews is getting a special Christmas present this year: the 1973 Chevy Camaro stolen from him 27 years ago, returned by the Santas at the California Highway Patrol. But who is the Grinch who stole it?

An out-of-control Toyota Prius was brought to a halt today in San Diego by a California Highway Patrol car putting itself in front of it like a brake. According to the CHP, the car suffered from a stuck accelerator. UPDATE.
The Tesla Roadster has yet to officially hit the streets, but the electric Elise-cousin has stirred the ire of the Calfornia Highway Patrol. The electron-powered sportster chock-full of lithium-ion technology, was nailed by the po-pos not far from the company's San Carlos, California facility. Look out, honey, because…
Since we got tipped to this by Thnderblt, Jamillah of tha Beeb and Herr Roy himself, we kind of can't not post it. A 35-year-old G ttengen man was taken in by German authorities for impersonating an officer in a 30-year-old California Highway Patrol car. Apparently, the man was taking the car to Bavaria to sell when…
The California Highway Patrol is caught up in a bit of a snafu. For the last six years, the law-enforcement agency has been buying and riding BMW patrol bikes through a Roseville, California dealership. A Santa Cruz Harley-Davidson agency, however, submitted a bid reportedly a cool mil less in an attempt to score the…
Let us say right now that as opposed to other law enforcement agencies, the CHP has only ever busted us when we were actually doing something really wrong.

We pontificated yesterday about the possibility that the California Highway Patrol would appropriate Dodge Chargers for hot pursuit duty, given the vehicle's more-than-respectable horsepower numbers, four doors and commodious backseat space.
