Even if we assume that, at some level, pretty much every elected official sucks and will find some way to take unfair advantage of their position while in office, you still hope the people who make up your government have at least the minimal amount of intelligence to not be stupid about it. That’s clearly not the…
As far as I can tell, there’s no definitive data on how often someone’s pulled over by a fake cop. But it’s not unheard of for some moron to put flashing lights on their car and arrest someone! So, when Google revealed last month that it tested how its self-driving cars will respond to emergency vehicles, I had a…
This past Sunday afternoon, the North Carolina Highway Patrol stopped an alleged street race involving ten BMWs, impounding five of the cars. Troopers allege that five of the cars were slowing down and blocking surrounding traffic while the other five raced at speeds approaching 100 mph.
Look at this cow. Why did you put it in the back of a Honda Civic’s cabin, wedged between the seat near a piece of fruit and an old black shoe? It doesn’t look comfortable. It looks smushed. How did you do it?
As an attentive driver in America, there are certain sets of headlights you learn to look twice at when you see them in your rear-view. Crown Vics, Chargers, Caprices and these days, you better keep the Ford Explorer in mind, too.
Catastrophic brake malfunction, or sweet-ass semi-truck driftooo? Both, actually.
Nothing will ruin your commute like a highway shut down because a calf got loose. When the little cow decided to take a detour and avoid the cops on a Tennessee motorway, one brave cowboy mounted a cop car and roped it in.
Despite what movies like Zootopia show, police officers are people. Well, except for those police dogs. They’re canines. Human officers are, of course, human, and like other humans, they make mistakes and are not above the law. All of these facts became painfully clear as one Michigan deputy was forced to pull over a…
It’s nice to think of cops as the appointed “dads” of a community. Or like friendly characters in the first act of a Disney movie. This clip from Officer Martin Folczyk’s dashcam illustrates, well, exactly that.
All I want for Christmas is to go to the California Highway Patrol’s car handling camp. Who knew learning how not to drive would be so much fun? I mean, now that I think about it, we all should have figured.
Ruger the black lab must have good instincts. Or maybe he’s seen some Disney movies. Lost on a cold winter night, he hopped into an open police car and curled up on the passenger seat all cute-like. When the officer discovered the dog riding shotgun, the dog got a free lift home.
The Michigan State Police has conducted its own torture tests on pretty much all the cars, SUVs and motorcycles American cops are driving today. Preliminary results are in– check them out and see if your car’s faster than your local law enforcer.
This video isn’t exactly exciting, but it has a certain weird draw to it. I don’t think either participant comes off very well, and there’s a certain uncomfortable tension throughout. So why do I keep watching it?
Security at this year’s NY Heritage of Pride Parade will come with a strong display of solidarity with the LGBT community. It’s nice to see the police lead with an inclusive example, and frankly, the car looks good this way.
Is this the most equipment and manpower a law enforcement agency has ever devoted to a meme?
Three people were busted in New York’s Holland Tunnel today after cops somehow couldn’t help but notice their pickup truck, decorated in a ludicrously charming “hillbilly teens playing Army” motif, was allegedly packed with loaded guns, combat equipment, body armor and drugs. Why? Rescue mission, obviously!
Think they busted the guitar player dangling off the front too?
The Dubai Police have reportedly knocked down their local hooligans a peg, seizing 81 vehicles allegedly involved in street racing. And we’re not talking about clapped-out Civics; cops say some cars were clearing 180 MPH on public roads.
The 2016 Ford Mustang looks properly phosphorescent in British police livery. Reports say U.K. cops are evaluating the pony car for patrol duty this summer. And perhaps crowd control detail?
President Barack Obama was in New York City this week to join Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Moments before his motorcade cruised across Park Avenue, some apparently oblivious or brazen bicyclist thought they could “make the light” and cross before POTUS. The cops were not having it.
