Sunday Fun

One of my few guilty pleasures is watching videos of high-speed police pursuits. This is an area where the British police have something of an edge. British police drivers are trained to a very high standard, which they need to be, given the narrow width of the roads and the generally much higher speeds over there.

In this clip, the boys in blue are after a drunk driver. (Remember people drive on the left over there) They reach speeds of 85 MPH on residential streets in the pouring rain. My favorite part of this has to be where the cop passes a guy turning right, at over sixty. How he gets through that gap beats me.

Check it out - but don't try this at home!

Geek Footnote: The cops are driving a Honda Accord VTEC.
