No, I would never even think of it. Sure, you might get away but chances are you'll be caught and your punishment will be even worse. It's a stupid idea.

Oh yes, twice or three times I think, but I was young, 6 to 8/9, and did some strange stuff. Broke into an office with a friend once, when I was 6, short before 7, made a fire in an empty house (no one got hurt, the fire was put out very fast, and the house is still standing - it is made of bricks and not wood) when I was 7, and when I was 8 or 9 a friend (the same with the break in) and me burnt some big tires (one meter or more in diameter) in the neighbouring and empty garden of our neighbour.

But all three times I finally got caught by the police, I even got some sausage on the precinct while waiting for my mother.

I'm still in good contact with the police though, due to my stupid lifestyle of having accumulated quite some unpaid bills during my drug years.

I hope when I look back on the last sentence in some years, it will seem as stupid as those deeds I did in my childhood.

if you decide to run.....dont take your first right. that is human instinct. I have reads cops are trained to do that once they lose sight of vehicle as chances are they took that turn

Yea I have several times. Its all because of skateboarding, cops would pull up and we would all scatter...sometimes you are the one being chased. I've gotten caught a few times and put in cuffs/back of the squad car, but nothing major.

I cannot recommend it on a Harley. As soon as you full noise it the whole town knows where you are. I think I got a 400 slide fine out of that.


On a Ducati or something similar,well then it might have been a different ball game....this is 15 or so years ago mind you :D

No.

But I have hid and or rain from them a few times at underage drinking parties, when they unexpectedly showed up. :D

Mind you, this is over 10 years ago.

Whilst underage and drinking, I have run from the cops. The cop isn't going to spend his Friday night chasing down some teenager for drinking, especially when the house is full of even more who didn't run. (idiots)

I have by foot.

My friends and I set off the security alarm of the TD Bank building in downtown Toronto. We ended up escaping from the building and running outside, where it was snowing and freezing cold. Must have been -20 C. We split up and all managed to get away. :)

It was one of these buildings.




Good times. ;)
