This is one of two televised police pursuits in California yesterday. I’m waiting for the other one to go online, but this one should hold me over until then I guess.
LA is an exciting place on TV.
Thankfully the teen isn’t seriously hurt. But watching this video made me think of portions of the book Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us). Non-aggressive people turn aggressive when put behind the wheel of heavy machinery (vehicles like SUVs included).
This is the scene you create when you run from the cops in an SUV and then flip it into a fire hydrant. CRASH.
Some neat ideas here for a fuel-cell driven concept SUV called the Ener-G-Force from Mercedes-Benz. But who are we kidding? This will never be released (at least not looking as cool as this).
