Slang Gang Word of the Day

Police Chase

Occurs when motorists are afraid to pass a police car while driving on a highway due to a fear of being caught for speeding. Similar to a parade maker, the result is a traffic jam.

Joe: Why is traffic moving soooo slowly?
Bob: Can't you see? We're in the middle of a police chase.

~Guilty as charged~

HAHA!...I learned a GREAT trick for avoiding that when i was younger...it only works in a stick-shift....all you do is down shift quickly when you see the cop....NO BRAKE LIGHTS...that alerts them! Then you come to a slower pace with no lights!....um...I might or might-not do that now-a-days...I do drive a stick again...hehehe! but I NEVER speed...NO not me!

I hate hate this! Or how about when people hit the brakes because the cop has someone pulled over already? It's not like he is going to jump in his car and chase you!
