Running from the police is a bad idea, especially after you’ve stopped, handed over your driver’s license and given them time to sit and process your information. But, people still do dumb things all the time, like this BMW driver, whose escape was captured on video.
New York City cops are mad that their biggest union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, has stopped them from handing out 30 PBA cards (often called “get out of jail free” cards) to friends and family every year. Instead they can only hand out 20 a year. Retired cops get 10.
A New York City cop has been injured after trying to stop what appears to be a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG from drifting through Times Square, and the incident was all caught on video.

What’s likely one of the more commonly fantasized excuses for a car chase was no excuse early New Year’s Day, as Carl Alewine witnessed the birth of his daughter handcuffed to the hood of his car after getting pulled over speeding to the hospital.
TJ Hooker and other 1980s cop shows led many of us to believe that about 75 percent of police work involved hanging on to rapidly moving cars. Apparently that’s not exactly the case in reality. Except sometimes it is, as in this incident of a Florida cop who was sent to check out a possible overdose.
Miami-Dade police issued 123,731 traffic citations in 2015. So far this year, they’ve given out 76,563. Part of the reason for that massive dip, according to The Miami Herald? Police are running out of paper tickets.
Never, ever point a laser pointer at an aircraft. Your cat’s favorite toy can blind the pilots aboard that aircraft, who will not be pleased.

An officer in the United Kingdom showed the world just what a cop without a gun can do after he save a driver’s life by holding an entire truck back from a precipice.
A Minnesota police department got an anonymous envelope last month, sent to the attention of the chief.

Earlier this year, Ford unveiled the Police Responder Hybrid Sedan and F-150 Police Responder; pursuit-rated cars that, while not being as fast as some of their fully-gasoline-powered counterparts, still beat the hell of a Crown Vic. Today, Ford revealed a new offering for police: its first plug-in hybrid, which the…
You order the pizza, you eat the pizza and as you’re going to throw the box away, you remember that your old Buick parked outside doesn’t have a license plate. Well, who has a pair of scissors and a marker? You do!
I’m not sure what’s going on in St.Louis right now, but based on this video, everyone there seems really cranky and crabby. If you don’t believe me, watch this video of a man who was pulled over for the unconscionable crime of honking at an unmarked police car that was sitting at a green light.
