It's part of his long-term plan. He lets some people live for a while, despite doing unbelievably stupid shiat. This encourages other morons to do likewise. Then he snags more people. You people are thinking titily winks, Darwin's playing Go.

I guess my first question here is how far was he going? I mean, speeding by and large rarely cuts that much travel time.

If you are going 15 miles:
At 60MPH, you will get there in 15 minutes
At 75MPH, you will get there 12 minutes
At 193MPH, you will get there in about ~5 minutes - but he did not travel that fast the entire time...

So let's say with the stop lights, turns, neighborhood driving and the area around the hospital he averaged a total driving speed of 80MPH (which I am guessing is on the high side here), he would have saved about 4 minutes. That kind of reckless driving simply is not worth it.

50 Miles on the thruway from Albany to exit 19 (which is where you would get off for Rosendale). About an hour from Albany to Rosendale if you go 75-80 and there's not much traffic. He cut his trip in half!

The real question is, why the fark is this posted in a Sacramento California newspaper?

This. Reckless driving, speeding, maybe get him on a plate or insurance or license violation, but those probably would've been mentioned. Pretty unlikely he had any equipment violations. Sure, throw the book at him maximum wise on those, but where did they get the other 10 charges?

I lived in Rosendale, NY for a summer while working at Mohonk Mountain House with a bunch of my friends. Was pulled over one night going home after a party. I hadn't been drinking but had 7 people in a 5 passenger car that also had pot in it. Cop gave me a ticket for 5 over and sent me on my way. I felt pretty damn lucky that night.

Ok, from the new article I see how this happened.

Once Anderson was in custody, three separate troopers ticketed him based on the infractions each one had seen, Lovely said. He said one trooper issued Anderson five tickets for infractions in the Greene County town of Catskill, while two others issued tickets fro infractions in Ulster County.

That's pretty god damn shady if you ask me but... What do I know.

Probably the old standards for idiots like this. Illegal lane changes, lack of signaling during lane changes, lane splitting, violation of right of way, et cetera.

It's nearly impossible to ride that fast in traffic without breaking the hell out of all sorts of other traffic laws.

I'm just astounded that he kept it upright in the rain at high speeds. I have some of the best "rain tires" available on my bike, and it still reminds me from time to time that anything over about 70 in the rain is a Really Bad Idea.

I bet one was for a 'busted tail light' and at least three counts of destruction of police property (namely broken batons)

/The police don't like it when you don't stop.

I bet he also had a 'fleeing and eluding' charge, even though there is no way the cop would have been able to get behind him with this lights on.

6am one sunday morning, I wanted to see how fast I could go. I hit 155mph, then the wind caught my backpack and turned it into a drouge parachute. Damn near ripped me off the back. I have decided to play it safe from then on, and haven't gone past 110 since.
