if you're in a car, on a bike, on a skateboard, or rollerblades, don't even bother trying to run from the cops unless you ditch your vehicle at some point along the way
i tried to outbike a cop in a highly residential area (lots of corners, thought i could make it) and didn't have a chance. i have outran cops various times on foot with ease though.
first time i was hanging with my friend Rachel at the local elementary school at 2 in the morning. popular smoking spot but we didn't care, we were just chilling. cop pulls up, we bolt into the woods, spend about 5 minutes running then came out on the other side at a lake. chilled there the rest of the night, cop never came.
second time i was with the same girl, cop pulled up next to us while we were walking on the sidewalk in the early morning. I told him she was my sister and we went for a walk because we couldn't sleep and that we were walking home at the moment. luckily i knew the upcoming street and said that was our street, he let us go without a problem.
third time i was with the same girl again, cop drove by, we dove into some bushes, waited for 2 minutes, cop drove by again, we started running back to her house, ran through some yards in the process. halfway there we realized the cop was following us along the road so we just stopped in someones backyard and laid low for a little while.
1. run somewhere that cops WONT want to follow you. look around, pick out the place you'd LEAST like to run through, and run that direction.
2. if you decide to stop running at any point, GET LOW AND STAY QUIET. also, NEVER stop somewhere without an exit plan (for example any yards with high, unclimbable fencing)
3. coinciding with rule 2, always have multiple ways to go. if you've only got one way to go and the cop is coming from that way, obviously you're fucked.
