Haha, could be looking at the wrong part of the speedo.

I have been a bit over 160 mph in my sig car, but not without careful prep and 2 spotters on a desolate stretch of a toll road near here. Stock limiter kicks in at about 171-173 mph and the car will easily go 180 if you have enough road...

Can't say I haven't been there done that but young people do stupid things sometimes. But I didn't do it drunk. But then I didn't just go 155. Blue lights in the distance and fading fast.

I thought officers weren't supposed to pursue up to those speeds?

Yea, I mean I don't know if its right or not. I just didn't think they were supposed to. It would seem chasing at these speeds puts the officer in danger, as well as others. Being that time of morning sounds like the roads were probably empty.

Who cares how fast your or any other vehicle will go? Most of the roads in the US aren't safe at over 50 mph.

I believe that depends upon the jurisdiction. Every one having their own set of "rules" governing what they will and won't do.

I bet my rural area probably has guidelines for when officers can and can't put down animals--would guess that's a non-starter in cities. [Could be wrong. But just illustrating the point--I doubt many NYC cops have to deal with moose strikes.]

The Charger Pursuit package cars are factory limited to 155mph if I am remembering correctly.
