Default Totally owned by a new Impala (must read)

well i am going down 441 at about 85 (149 Km/h) and i see this new impala on a side road getting ready to pull on to the road, now the speed limit is 55 (89 Km/h) on this stretch... anyway, i look in my rearview about 20 seconds later and guess who i see, Mr. Impala, he is following me through traffic for about 2 miles when we come to a light, the light turns yellow and i could have gotten through (it would have just been turning red as i got to it) but i am a bit more sensible than to run a red... anyway i roll down my window, i was going to compliment him on his car, as he pulls up his window is down too and i think cool, not for long though... i get out "Nice car" and he comes back with "you need to slow your *** down" then he moves his up a bit higher and i notice that he has a badge in it... i am now thinking OH ****!!! but that is all he says, then... as i am pulling out of the light he gets behind me and about the time i get to 50 (81 Km/h) he hits his little headlight flashers, at this point what i am thinking is R rated... anyway he ends up letting me off after commenting to his friend "Rocket Scientist here was going 100 (161 Km/h) down 441", and another "You need to slow your *** down" to me

well... thats not the first but it is the last time i am going to be doing that... i realized that i want tires a lot more than i need to go 35 (48 Km/h) over the limit...

He had a badge on his car or his chest? You might want to chjange the title so people know it has to do with law enforcement.

Always slow down for cars on the road like crown vics, caprice'*, and impalas. Or just look at their drivers side mirror. Usually the mirror will have a searchlight on it even if it is undercover sometimes.

We got a few Impalas on the force here. So hard to spot. Gotta be careful.

yea, this car was totally stealth... no spotlight, nothing to tip you off that it was a cop car, it wasn't even white... it was a silver color

Here in Holt, MI, the cops all have White Impala'*, and there are 2 White Tahoe Canine Units. But, there is also an Undercover Black Impala with an L67! It looks bone stock, it even has normal impala wheels, not the cop ones, the only difference is there are 2 very little lights on the grill that are red and blue. The car even has the stock 1 outlet exhaust.
