Obviously the solution is to follow the lead of the police in Dubai! They had to purchase super/hyper cars to keep up with the rich kids driving them over there
Getting the cops faster cars is just asking for trouble. The solution is much simpler, given that no car can outrun a radio.
Decades ago police gave chase to a speeding idiot inside city limits where I live. And by city, I mean a small town of less than 10,000 at the time--this didn't take place on a 4-lane highway, but main street. It ended with a dead pedestrian--incidentally the mayor's nephew. It didn't take long before the rulebook on police pursuits were changed in Ontario.
I got 125 mph out of one at midnight on the Tampa freeway once. My main problem was when the street lights stopped. Suddenly, absolute total darkness. Still the new pants were cheaper to buy in the US.
In the Netherlands there’s a website http://bestwelsnel.nl/ with measured speeds on the road.
“uitleg” = help. Its Dutch but I am sure you can find a translator.
Measurements are done by “inductions loops” in the asphalt, 24000 of them throughout the country.
Green = bevestigd = confirmed (within 1 minute, within 5km, a second measurement > 170kmh)
Gray = onbevestigd = unconfirmed
Red = maximum (as of 2013-12-31) or dagmax (maximum of the day)
The Netherlands is not that big, if you watch this website, it looks like a formula 1 circuit.
Take a look and see for yourself how much idiots we have over here
Not to be negative, but after a weekend to recharge, that's what you come up with? We're gonna have to keep an ion you.
