With things like this happening in Stupidfornia every day, there should be a cable TV channel dedicated to covering this sort of thing.....

Carmageddon was a complete box office flop.

Traffic all around LA today was significantly lighter than usual.

there is. It’s called TMZ and a part time channel with shows like Access Hollywood.

Just passed by our sfx studio in Hollywood and you’re right, it was a flop.

One of our employees from the Valley said the orange line or SFV train line was FREE today but tons of cops and sheriffs were on hand to check the red line to Hollywood which was not free.

What I truly don’t understand.....These things almost always end the same way. Yet, I’ve clicked the link and am watching the live feed. Why am I even interested?

Depending on how much gas they have, if they drive long enough they may be able to pass the breathalyzer.

I’m just glad it’s not me. Hey what are the lights behind me....good god if they want the go around, just go around.

LOL, the biggest kick we got when I was deployed was watching LA car chases live.

We used to joke that is was so and so brother, and why was he going there.

I love those things and that was a good one.

I’m crushed that the helicopter ran out of gas.

Why don’t they just call ahead and have one of those strips with the nails in it laid across the road? They can also set up road blocks, that what the frickin’ radios in the cars are for. This sh** of chasing someone all over a city and endangering everyone’s lives is just BS.

I’ve tried to get my cable company to dump the Golf Channel in favor of a Car Chase channel. I love these things. I keep expecting to see my ex.

I’m with you. A channel devoted to live high-speed pursuits would get better ratings than the royal wedding.

Wow three hours. A third strike paroling taking a joy ride before life in jail. Probably means just a couple of months in the CA jail system.

Bummer. The chopper can’t go any further based on how dark it is in the area the chase is headed.

I just flipped over to my scanner app and heard they have the driver at gunpoint after a successful spike strip deployment.

One of my faves was an multi-hour chase of a little old lady on the I-5 from the north end of the valley to near Bakersfield. Average speed was 25 mph. When she finally pulled over, she berated the cop for how rude he was making all that noise and shining those bright lights at her. I think the word, “Sonny” probably figured in there somewhere.

The other day my sister said. “I would worry if I thought you meant half of what you say”... I told her, “I do, you just have to figure out which half”.

I’ll pay the guys bond if he runs over Bill Maher. I’ll pay for his attorney if he then backs up over him.

And I am being civil.

There’s a way to deter these kinds of chases. Arm police helicopters with air to ground missiles. After a couple of cars are shown on TV burning, most rational people will understand that they can’t escape in a car chase. Whoops, I forgot I’m talking about California, lots of irrational people there.
