Fun fact: Smoking cars are easy to follow.
Running from the cops is never a good idea. If you have to do it, you should probably have a fast car that could blend into traffic when needed, like a European sports sedan. Trying to lose the 5.0 in a beater Mazda gushing smoke won’t end well. To be fair these guys are just out for a test drive and the cop only ended up writing them a ticket for bad registration and no insurance. Still, it’s funny to see them trying to hide out while the Protege they were driving smokes endlessly.
Cops get crap for not being smart, but how hard is it to follow a trail of smoke? Lesson learned: If you’re going to run then don’t leave a trail of breadcrumbs behind you.
