ha ha. Yeah it depends on where you are. Walk around a major town like Cleveland, Columbus, or Cincinnati, and people are going to call the cops. Walk around one of our many rural towns, and they're less likely to think anything of it. Of course that said, since the introduction of the concealed carry law, many of the local businesses have signs posted stating no firearms are allowed. So even in an open carry capability they can restrict your ability to come into their building.

Assuming the proper aim, and proper intensity, no they're fine. I even had them on my '10 Charger. You've just got to do it right, and aim is one of the key factors. Many people just slap the bulbs in and don't adjust the aim of their beam. When converting you need to get the proper beam shape, and alignment. As long as they're set up correctly they're legal.

Nope, well not on the ground anyway. We could always sick the plane on it. That's hard to outrun because it doesn't have to deal with traffic or bends in the road.

Seriously though. I assume the SRT8 (especially a modded on) will exceed 160 mph so it should be able to take us, assuming of course we don't have unit's ahead of it to radio to with spikes.

Yesterday while going on a cruise i noticed a z06 going 100+ mph on the highway. A trooper was on the median checking speeds so i assumed that the trooper would have gone after the z06 but what i noticed the trooper do was simply turn on its lights drive about a quarter mile and pulls over into the median. Now the z06 was bright yellow and loud as heck theres no way that the trooper could have not seen it. So my question is. Does it ever get to a point where a car is going to fast and the sheriff, cop, ST is just like "oh well maybe some other patrol car will get him"

To h*** with I-80. The only thing I like about that road is the speed limit, otherwise I stick to I-90 and RT-2 when I'm home in Ohio

Been wondering about the dogs too. Do you guys use the same dogs to sniff for drugs, bombs, track people etc? Or does each dog get trained to do it all?

I wouldn't say it's so much of "oh well", but rather, the officer will terminate for safety reasons (violator, officer, and public). When pursuing a vehicle you need to constantly weigh the risk of continuing the pursuit versus the risk of allowing the suspect to get away. In the example you mention the initial violation was speed. Now with the car being a Z06, it's a pretty good guess that the only reason the car was driving that fast is because it is a Z06. Does that make it okay? No, but it's not likely to have been someone fleeing the scene of a violent crime (though not completely out of the question, just not probable). So the officer needs to ask himself/herself if having 2 car now running 100+ is worth a a speeding ticket. Depending on traffic volume, road conditions, weather conditions, ect, it may simply not be worth it. Now if that car had just been reported fleeing the scene of a shooting, or armed robbery then yes, you'll push a little harder to catch it because the risk of letting them get away is greater than letting a speeder get away.

So to answer the question in short form. Yes there are times an officer will let a car go and hope someone further down the road will catch it.

Our dogs are all dual-purpose dogs. They are drug and apprehension, bomb and apprehension, drug and search/rescue, etc, etc. They've all got 2 things they're trained for.
