When being pursued by another vehicle, unless you are prepared, you have very few options. When you are in a car chase there are only two outcomes that will occur:

1- Your car will be disabled and you will be caught


2- You will escape

Without proper preparation, your chances of escaping will be minimal. Maybe pursuers will get in an accident disabling their vehicle, or maybe your superior driving will loose them.

However if two or more cars are chasing you, superior driving will be a lot less effective.

To increase your chances of success in a car chase, you must first prepare yourself and your vehicle. Then you must take the right action during the chase:

Preparing Yourself and Your Car

How to Protect Your Car

1- Get Run Flat Tires on Your Car
This will protect your car from being disabled. Even if you run over a spike strip, your car will still be able to drive at speeds of 55 mph or more.

2- Better Shocks
If you need to go off road, higher quality shocks will make the difference of getting through it or not

3- Upgrade your Bumper
Replace your cars current bumpers with dual ram bumpers.

4- Heavy Duty Radiator
Replace your current radiator with a new heavy duty radiator which can keep up with the chase.

5- Bullet Proof Windows and Body
If you really want to protect yourself, replace the windows with bullet proof glass. Add Kevlar and steel plates to the cars interior. If you do not have Kevlar on hand, use old phone books and pack them inside the doors. Most bullets will not penetrate a phone book. Click here to read more…

7 Steps to Pick a Handcuff Lock:

1- Get a regular bobby pin. On one end you’ll notice there is a plastic tip. Pull away the plastic, this is the end you will be using. (If you are unable to pull away the plastic covering, simply bite it off)

2- Put the tip in the bottom part of the lock and bend it down. This will create an “L” shape on the end of the pin.

3- Take it out the bobby pin, turn it around, and bend it the other way. The pin will resemble a “Z” (This will create the leverage for prying open the jaw)

4- Place the bobby pin in the keyhole. You want the tip to be turned towards the main part of the lock pointing at the direction of 10 o’clock.

5- Take the bobby pin and bend it down. This will release the latch that will open the jaw of the handcuff.   Click here to read more…
