California’s canyon roads offer some fantastic opportunities to enjoy enthusiastic driving and motorcycling. Local police are aware of this. Try not to freak out and fall over if you see them.
Remember that Texas police officer who was caught on video spraying pepper spray into the road as motorcyclists passed by? He now admits he did it, but claims it was because he could not safely approach the truck he’d just pulled over.
A helmet cam from a rider in Fort Worth, Texas shows what looks to be a police officer, who was parked on the side of the road after pulling a car over, attempting to spray pepper spray into a row of oncoming motorcyclists, for what appears to be no reason.
On Aug. 3, 2012, Justin Wilkens was speeding in his Aprilia motorcycle and unwittingly passed Oregon State Police Officer Rob Edwards in an unmarked cop Camaro. After a few minutes of chase, Edwards rammed Wilkens off the bike, pulled a gun on him and kicked him in the chest. If you think that sounds egregious, the…
If the fear of fines and jail time doesn’t stop you from breaking road rules, this trucker—who, apparently, isn’t familiar with the “Move Over” law about switching lanes while a cop has another car pulled over—probably will.
Police waited at the home of a family after someone called in seeing the parents “put a child in the trunk” of the car — someone who clearly wasn’t aware that the Tesla Model S can be equipped with a third row of seats for children.
In preview of David Cross and Bob Odenkirk’s new Netflix sketch series With Bob and David, they’ve released a clip which parodies the “Know Your Rights” videos. If you haven’t seen them, the series is a YouTube staple that features various ways with which to engage with law enforcement, and are often recorded by white…
Nobody likes getting pulled over for speeding, but at least when you are pulled over, you know exactly what happened, why, and the cop who pulled you actually knows who you are, regardless of what you’re driving. None of these things can be said about Officer David Carter’s methods, which involved his own private car…
Can you say a cop is ‘undercover’ when they’re holding a sign announcing exactly who they are and what they’re doing? Maybe, if the sign is scrawled on cardboard, the officers are out of uniform, standing by an off-ramp, and everyone’s brain is conditioned to read people like that as homeless? The San Bernadino Police…
The NYPD knows fanny packs ain’t cool, guys. Actually they describe the wearable cargo-pouches as “hideous” but hey; if you’re gonna look like a dorky tourist here’s how to get the most out of it.
Last week somebody called the cops on this 1994 Plymouth Voyager low-budget ice cream van for swerving into oncoming traffic and slamming curbs. Cops rolled up and arrested the allegedly intoxicated driver while he was selling ice cream to kids.
A 22-year-old stole a car, got stopped, stole a police car from the officers trying to get him, then led half the cops in Bergen County, NJ on an almost unbelievable chase. Here are the intense final minutes of pursuit from the car that finally brought him down.
In America two dudes stopping traffic to yell at each other usually escalates to gunfire, somebody losing an eye, and maybe an exotic pet breaking out of the trunk. In Canada, it’s just some sherbet-colored shorts and a stern talking-to.
A random pedestrian news outlets alternately referred to as “heroic” and “crazy” brought a wild Los Angeles police chase to an end as he stepped in front of the suspect’s car, ending the hour-long pursuit.
This might come as a shock: The FBI has a secret air force of sorts that’s recently been buzzing over Baltimore. Or maybe it’s not a shock at all. The FBI’s been using aircraft for decades. These new planes, however, use surveillance equipment designed for warfare and capable of tracking innocent citizens. That’s bad.
Looks like some prankster at Loyola University Chicago cranked the wheel of this catering cart, put a brick on the accelerator, and ran away as hilarity ensued. Until the local lawmen show up to shut it down, then it gets way funnier.
So, maybe your car isn't necessarily legal to drive. You've got expired tags, an expired inspection sticker, and even an expired property tax sticker. Maybe it's been that way for more than a year. And considering your daily commute is an hour each way, in traffic, on major highways, you can practically feel the cops…
Police officers turn up a lot in Gawker stories, but unless they’re a department commissioner giving a press conference or a union leader loudly berating a public official, it’s rare that they actually have a voice. What does the average beat cop think about Darren Wilson or Daniel Pantaleo? What is he looking for…
