Absurd that you think you can tell how fast a car is going based on a dashboard camera and he obviously slowed down when he saw the blue lights and the fact it took the officer 3 miles to catch him. I promise you could not tell how fast I was going in the videos taken from the inside of my vette, for that matter you could not come close to telling how fast the Blackhawk or the CH-47 Chinook was going while filming from the inside I have taken on numerous occasions, it is impossible.

He was referring to how fast the police car was going, not clowney...the police cam has a speed readout that shows how fast the police car is going, at one point he hit 142

Could someone do a video with the thread title in place of "What does the fox say"?

And I can assure you he was running 141mph. The video doesn't really show it but he is. Much in the way that you can't hear the siren. If you don't believe it, I can show you some videos of mine where I've gotten my Tahoe topped out at 140mph and it doesn't "seem" like it. But the speedometer, gps and radar all said 140 so that's what I'll go

A Tahoe can go 140?!

That was my first thought. Apparently the police ones can. How is beyond me w 320 hp at 6k pounds with the aerodynamics of a brick. Theyre crazy slow accelerating though so it must be tall gearing.

Careless operation is a trap. You may not get any points against your license but it does go against your insurance points. Insurance companies got wise to the coppers hitting you with a high fine but no points and they didn't want to be left out.

You get stopped in a speed trap and they offer you careless operation, take the speeding ticket. It'll save you in the long run.

Yep, sure can.

There are two Tahoe police packages:

The PPV (like mine, 2011) is lowered, stiffer suspension, wider track and a 6 speed automatic with a manual shift mode. It will still pull at 140 but the electronic nannies kill the fun.

The SSV is the 4x4 that is pretty much a base Tahoe with upgraded cooling systems, high output alternators and such. Not fleet of foot in the least but good when used as they were designed to be.

It is a funny feeling to be in a 5900lb truck running that fast, but you get used to it.

The new 2015 redesign (pretty fugly IMHO) will offer the 4x4 in the PPV.

Thank God it was the highway patrol and a routine citation. Columbia PD would have had half the force out there, the dogs, passengers cuffed and spread eagle on the ground, sobriety tests, car search, etc.

Like I said in the other thread, thank God no drugs and alcohol involved. Officer was very polite.

I've seen Police driving and shooting training, that's not saying much, if anything at all. I can guarantee you 40% of the population is just as good of a driver, and statistically 70% are better shots.
If it wasn't JC and wasn't a speeding violation, would going 140 to catch a child molester/murderer/rapist be ok?
No it wouldn't. You essentially double the number of people in danger on a highway during high speed "catch-ups" if you will.

Essentially, JD can't outrun Motorola. It's never "OK" for you to willingly put someone in danger trying to stop someone else from putting someone in danger. Murphy will kill you all in those situations.
