Chevy Chase

Okay, I don't know if it was a Chevy...looked sorta like one, but nevertheless it was a vehicle chase in California...again.

What's up with car chases? Do the suspects think if they keep driving that the gods will have all police cars and helicopters run out of gas simultaneously so he/she can get away? Do they think their own vehicle has an endless supply of gas or air in the tires? Or do they think there's a hijacker's refueling tanker that will drive up, refuel and drop back off so the chase can continue without interruption?

If you want a good nap, try watching CNN's coverage of a car chase while muting the sound. When you wake up, chances are the chase is still happening.

some people try to drive to their house so their car won't get towed. other people don't have a strategy, but they are too high to realize that they should probably stop when more than two police cars are pursuing them.

i usually keep driving, but very slowly, so maybe they will forget it was a pursuit at all.

I did that before! I saw a cop in my rearview mirror turn around with his lights flashing and I immediately starting hurrying without going over the speed limit into a neighborhood and trying to appear as though I didn't see him.

Failed attempt on my part.

I know what it is! It's all those heist movies wherein the people trying to outrun the police actually do outrun the police. Blame Hollywood!

Or it could be what Amanda Sue said.
