Running From The Police..., Bimmer + Hills + 100+mph = Fun

Well I guess I'll share my story with all.

I was driving home to New Jersey from Cornell this past weekend. I bought my friend's Escort off him this past winter, because there are tons of State and Local Police on the highways on my way down. On I-79, I-380, I-80, etc... its annoying. So now with my radar I can cut my trip down by about 30-45 min.
But I digress. I was crusin on I-380 in PA going about 120 or so, but if anyone knows 380, it has many hills. I was making great time and hadnt picked up any cops yet. I probably should have slowed down, becasue I got to a section where there is a series of about 5-6 steep downhills and then steep uphills, but I just decided to floor it on the up hills to keep going about 110-115 or so. Anyways, as I get to the crest of the last hill I think I'm home free but then my radar goes CRAZY
It is dusk, so it is getting hard to see, but I see the cop pull out of the bushes and put on his lights. I look around and see the last exit for like 5 miles, so I dart across two lanes and just barely get the exit. I continue on the exit ramp and get to a light. Since I cant see well, I almost turn into a military base.
Making a quick U-turn I head down a seemingly deserted road, only a few houses and some boarded up businesses. I see a truck pulled over on the side of the road for the night, so I pull up behind him, hiding myself from the road. I get out and go up on a little hill to see if i can see up the road. I sit on a little hill and wait for about 15min. No signs of a cop. I call my friend to get me back on the highway but about 5miles down. He gets me back on and I sail home, but this time only doing 85 so as not to attract attention.

Well that is my adventure, hope you enjoy it.

I bet he decided when you were goin 115 that he either wasn't going to catch you or he didn't want you to try to run and speed up. I've heard a lot of cops will just let you go if they think the danger outweighs the lesson they're trying to teach you. Not that i'm condoning going this fast in any way. But he probably was just hoping you'd slow down if he didn't chase ya

well he did pull out and put his lights on....

but i guess i can see what you mean... by putting his lights on he is hoping i slow down...
but you realize that if he had caught me, which he could have... i probably would have been arrested.

Crazy story man. I had a similar experience. Going about 100 and passed two cops on the side of the road. Instead of slowing down I floor it and take the first exit off. I saw the cop put on his lights, but I was gone before he had a chance to get close.

That's crazy. Luckily everything worked out okay.

Running from the cops usually isn't a good idea, but that would have sucked if you got caught. haha

Must have scared the shit out of you though, huh?

Nice work. I had a similar experience in HS with my Frod Probe GT (lol...like the GT really means anything). Anyways, I blew by a cop on the backroads in my hometown doing about 60 in a 35 and I saw him flip on his lights and pull out. Instead of slowing down and pulling over, I gunned it to the next stop sign and bandged a quick right. I got about a 1/4 mile ahead of him when he turned that right. Once I got outta his sight I flipped all my lights off and took a left ( I had aftermarkert fogs that would light up without any other lights) I drove down that road with my lights off and pulled to the side of the road when I saw him flying by in my rearview with the blues still blaring. Haha, I was loving it at 17 outrunning a cop.

wow you really got lucky...I think the only time I would try to outrun the cops would be in the canyons. They would have no chance at catching me with my knoweldge of all the tiny twisty connecting roads.

I cant condone it because If I have the chance to get away, Im getting away. So far Ive had no tickets with the red head, but she loves to flirt with the cops.
