Q: "What's the best way to escape the police in a high-speed car chase?" A: "There isn't one."

Just one point of many. Do you have the Concentration?
How often do you drive in this manner? Unless you're running because you're on parole, this is likely your first dance. Sure, you've driven fast before - for a while. Then, for whatever reason, you got uncomfortable and backed off. Maybe your car made a sound you got concerned about, maybe you caught a glint you thought might be a trooper's windshield, maybe you thought you heard the faintest pulses of a siren. Whatever it was, it weakened your resolve and you slowed down. You have no such luxury here. And while this is fresh for you, this is, to many of the people pursuing you, another day another dollar. They've trained for this in training scenarios and have been involved in pursuits in the field. They run code multiple times a week. Even if one of your pursuers was a rookie who got eaten up by the stress, there will be a dozen vets to take his place. -- - Quora

Your Say

I don't know if Jack Baruth would agree. He mocks the way cops try to drive fast.

P.S. nothing outruns a Motorola, except maybe neutrinos under certain circumstances.

Going near the airport or going into tunnels may require helicopters chasing you to give up pursuit

Heh. Only in the movies, pal...

It's a rat-in-the-corner move.
