davynelson: i hear it's very difficult to put photos up on the internet

Double prints aren't as cheap as they used to be. Besides, there aren't too many manufactures of high quality internet film these days.

I'd probably be dumb enough to hop into the back of that car perfectly sober and tell the cop, "The airport, and step on it!"

Godscrack: Police can hear all the cab dispatches anyway.

Then you're put on a watch list for being a drunk. Police keep tabs on you anytime they see you. Not a 'safe' as it looks.

Good luck citizen.

Another common tactic is that cops will often send undercover cops into bars disguised as young patrons. They will take pictures of their group, but will actually be trying to get photos of all the other people in the bar. They run this through facial recognition software to track who is drinking in bars, so that they can also be put on the watch list. Be careful anytime you see a camera or camera phone get pulled out at a bar, it is most likely a cop (or someone working for the cops).

I don't know why the stupid tag, seems pretty clever to me.

I have a tablet in a mount on the dashboard of my car (a big blue Buick), and a few weeks ago I was on the ICC here in Maryland when some dude came up behind me in a brand new, top of the line Mercedes. I was doing about 80 and he caught up to me like I was standing still. I moved over to let him pass and when he got next to me I saw him look over and he must have seen my tablet, thought I was a cop, because he slammed on his brakes. He dropped behind me and refused to pass me, no matter how much I slowed down. I actually slammed on my brakes at one point just to check, and dropped down to 55 and he kept behind me the whole time. It was kind of funny.

A deputy who drove it to Pekin from Springfield noticed a car speeding from behind at about 90 mph, Huston said. The driver apparently believed he was approaching a cab until he pulled alongside the vehicle and realized its true identity.

"Then it was like his brakes locked," Huston said.

You know, I could actually see something like this working out fine.
