I have always thought about the cars Policemen use whenever they are out there on the field chasing perpetrators of the law. If you watch a lot of Hollywood movies you will notice that Policemen have the maddest moves on the roads when they are chasing a bad guy. Sometimes the cars fly over one another, they somersault, they even catch fire at some point, but at the end of the day Police cars stay up to speed even with the bad guy’s cars and then they start shooting at each other, crazy stuff.
