I had to vote for the reality's.

How jealous are our cops that the americans can just ram into the car they are chasing.

If our lads did that they would have a weeks paper work to fill out.

There's a French crime-caper about a Taxi driver that has some spectacular chases involving a souped up Peugeot 405 of all things.

That'll be Taxi, Taxi 2 and Taxi 3 (I like 3 the most)

The Bourne Identity/Supremacy - two excellent chases using pieces of sh1t small cars

Of the ones on the list, probably Ronin the best and Bond in the T 55 worst (was it a T 80? my AFV is a bit rusty and I was getting a BJ while that was on so the concentration levels were a bit low!) :lol:

My mate versus a bunch of armed robbers in west london 1995, bandit car rammed off road and two armed men arrested by two unarmed cops after they had allready shot their way out of an armed flying squad vcp.

The villians told the arresting officers that they would have shot them to if they hadn't thought the black long batons they used to break the car windows were MP5's.

Did my mate get the Queens Police Medal? Did he b@@@@cks? The CPS made him stand trial for dangerous driving (aquitted luckily enough)

Now you see why we are bitter.

I voted for Bulllitt...Brings back my childhood :) However, we can't ram cars here either. Its considered "deadly force." Therefore, "ramming" can only be used in certain circumstances and in those circumstances, you must be able to use deadly force anyway, before you can "ram." Even then, its rarely, very rarely done. Too dangerous...

Anything from the Dukes of Hazzard and The Great Escape with Steve Mcqueen when he is running for the border.

You might want to talk to Central Region police about that. Apparently, their view was (as you mention above) that a high-speed pursuit entering a built-up area was "endangering the lives of others", and that if the only way to stop that happening was to ram the pursuee off the road, so be it.

By all accounts, it takes an Inspector to approve the decision, but once it's made, the pursuee gets T-boned on the driver's door by a Volvo T5......

It's cut the number of such chases in Central Region, apparently :)

Michael Mann directed a cop movie in the 80's called "To Live and Die in LA" starring Willem Dafoe. The car chase around the city's flood-relief channels is probably one of the best I've ever seen, up there with "Ronin" and, possibly, "Bullitt."

My own favourite personal car chase was conducted at 25mph at 03:00 around the North Circular. The suspect was a drunken Japanese salaryman who'd necked a bottle of whisky and was too pished to drive any faster. He refused to stop so we had this Darby-and-Joan "chase" (I like to think of it as a "determined follow") until he inexplicably stopped at some traffic lights. Eventually I had to handcuff him through the open window and drag him out that way.

At the police station he blew off the scale on the machine, winning the customary round of applause (Custody Sergeant shook his hand and the confused Japanese gentleman bowed). He didn't turn up for court, his company having sent him back to Japan to work in the mail room or something.

V!
