About a year ago, a sheriff’s office in Ohio purchased some GPS darts, which look like something out of a James Bond movie. Attached to the front of a cruiser’s grille, a dart is fired onto the rear of a car the cruiser is pursuing, allowing police to track the car from distance. On Monday, for the first time, a Lucas…
I’ve loved goats ever since I saw that Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were A Goat” video from a few years back. They seem to be some of the most vocal and inquisitive creatures out there. Things like police cruisers ain’t nothing to a goat.
Ford has been extremely rude lately developing a new generation of police pursuit vehicles, and now it’s introduced the F-150 Police Responder. It’s getting really hard to keep track of everything I’m supposed to spot from a mile down the road.
Austin Police Sgt. Zachary LaHood told CBS News he’s “lucky to be alive” after experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning from a leak in his Ford Explorer. Six other Austin police officers have also been treated for carbon monoxide exposure in the last week, so the department has taken 37 of its Ford Explorer Police…
It’s happened to all of us: we’re driving along, minding our own business, obeying the traffic laws, heading through that green light when suddenly we hear the sirens and see the lights and there’s the cop screaming through the intersection! Brake! Brake! Brake! Avoid the accident—if you’re lucky.
No, this isn’t the car for arresting anybody, although I’d love to see the police try in the speed and driving haven that is the Isle of Man.
I know all of you are upstanding, law-abiding citizens. I know the very idea that you would violate the sacred trust that is known as a ‘speed limit’ is barely possible to comprehend. I get that. Even so, I suspect you might find this chart of police car headlight patterns handy, for, you know, purposes of general…
Relax, this Porsche Cayman GT4 decked out in police livery is not for pulling people over or engaging in highway chases.
Car chases with cops are dangerous, and they almost never end well. The quicker they can be ended, the better. Cops have some exciting and risky techniques like the PIT maneuver to help them stop fleeing cars, and now there’s this MacGyverish-looking invention designed to let cops actually snag a fleeing car. This…
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.
A BMW Police wagon started vomiting flames out of its grilles in what looks like a scene from a horror movie yesterday near Ashford, in Kent, in England, in the United Kingdom. The devil hath taken this poor F31 Bimmer, and will not rest until the wagon is a large pile of Melted Driving Machine.
When Ford started with its now-popular Police Interceptor Utility, a Ford Explorer police vehicle, it was easy to spot one from a quarter mile. You could then slam your brakes, get down to the speed limit, and goose it as the car faded in your rearview. But now Ford has new LED lights that make it damn near impossible…
The Danville, Virginia Police Department is under a great deal of scrutiny after going viral for appearing to have popped the hoods of cop cars in order to block their dashcam views. Police officials have issued a denial, claiming that their cars merely got too hot and needed to cool off, but that explanation is also…
Watch as this squad car chases after a red light runner and ends up crashed and flipped onto its roof before even crossing the intersection. Thankfully everyone made it out of this wreck with minor injuries but, just, wow.
The Automobile Club of Southern California restored one of the few original 1961 Dodge Polara Highway Patrol cars, and one thing is for sure: as Jay Leno demonstrates, those cops took their rides very seriously.
Have you ever seen the car movie Luc Besson made just after The Fifth Element hit the screen? Well, I believe it’s time for Renault to pay for another Taxi sequel, because no Peugeot could deal with the R.S. 01 as a police interceptor.
Dodge revealed their new 2016 Charger Pursuit police car today, and the big takeaway is: it gets an enormous screen so you can keep your chunky computers in the trunk.
For years, there was a rumor that Volkswagen wanted to buy Alfa Romeo from Fiat after acquiring Lamborghini in 1998. That didn’t happen, but it seems like they managed to turn their Spanish brand Seat brand into something sexy enough for Italians. Even the Carabinieri.
When Tanner Brownlee was 15, his father Sam Brownlee was shot and killed in the line of duty while serving as a sheriff’s deputy in Colorado. Tanner doesn’t have a lot to remember his father by. That’s why he and his brother Chase wanted to buy their dad’s old Dodge Charger police car at a May charity auction.
