Unless you're driving a Bugatti or other supercar, your chances of outrunning the Texas Department of Public Safety's latest highway patrol car are slim-to-none. Not only is itbased on the fastest SRT8 Challenger that Dodge sells, it's also been modified. Did I mention it was donated by Buffalo Bills DE Mario Wlliams…
Gov. Rick Perry's Texas Highway Patrol just received their first-of-six armored "Shallow Water Interceptor" gunboat. Why does the Texas Highway Patrol all of a sudden need a fleet of armed-to-the-gills gunboats? For the same reason Texas usually arms itself up: Mexicans.
A Texas Highway Patrolman commands respect when behind the wheel of a Police Interceptor. When he's standing outside of one with AAA fishing out the keys locked inside? Not so much. (Hat tip to Jim!)
