High Speed Pursuit, Smart

Tonight (1-12-09)

Smart Car in High Speed Pursuit on the 210 FWY at 9-9:15 pm, starting around San Fernando. Coverage was on Channel 9. They called off the pursuit, because they said they have the license plate. Speeds from 90-100 mph, but I don't believe that.

It was a Blue and grey Smart car.

Any more info?

If it's not stolen, then the driver is STUPID, to put it nicely !!!

haha, the cops must have been shocked! I bet it was stolen just take the cops for a ride. But yeah I agree, if it wasn't stolen, owner = STUPID.

Called off the pursuit because they have a plate #? And the description: One of a few hundred Smarts in the state. Easy to spot in a crowd.

What other option was there, though? Can you PIT a Smart or would it roll?

I'll tell you what, though... with all the computer control inside that thing, one of those EMP pulse/zapper things would shut it down fast.

Garage
LOS ANGELES
With speeds often reaching 90 mph, police chased a suspect Monday evening in a Smart car through the San Fernando Valley towards Pasadena.

CHP officers, about half hour into the chase, decided to pull back in an effort to get the driver to slow down, according to authorities.

They abandoned the chase altogether when they determined who the driver was and where he lived, said officials.

At that point, the chase was well onto the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway approaching Sylmar.

The super-small and very fast (who knew?) Smart car was pursued initially on the northbound Hollywood (170) Freeway.

The CHP pulled over the driver for speeding.

After giving the officer his license and registration, the driver took off -- turning a traffice infraction into a felony by fleeing from authorities.

Not Stolen, Just not a Smart smart driver.This might boost the impresion of smarts just like Al Gore III, 24, Pulled Over Driving 100 MPH in a Prius With Marijuana and Prescription Drugs in Car, Say Police

Boosted the perception of the Prius

But we know he was still getting about 27 MPG durring that chase. Top that Prius.
