London Cops Steal From Your Car, But It's For Your Own Good

Call us crazy, but if someone took a mobile phone, a briefcase, or a handheld GPS navigation system out of our car--even if it were unlocked--we'd call that theft.

Expired: NYC Cops Ticket Deceased Driver For Weeks

Here at TCC, we love our friends on the force--even meter maids and traffic cops.

Link Love From The Car Connection: Smart Fortwo Loses In Court, Police Love Lambo Gallardos, And Please, No More Hipster Videos

♦ At left, you see the Smart fortwo and its lower-priced doppelganger (i.e. Chinese knock-off), the Shuanghuan Noble. But which is which? To Daimler's dismay, a Greek court has ruled that informed buyers totally know the difference, so Shuanghuan is clear for takeoff. But let's see Shuanghuan...Read More»

Really Hot Pursuit? 2010 Jaguar XF Police Car Hits the Streets

Here in the U.S., police generally make do with high-volume, low-tech fleet vehicles like the long-lived Ford Crown Victoria or the more recent Chevrolet Impala or Dodge Charger - all perfectly capable of the job, but not particularly luxurious or sporting.

Police Found Guilty Of Loving The Pontiac G8

Search Limitations (For Police, Not Google)

For 28 years, police in the U.S. have operated under the assumption that if they pull you over, they can search your car. Everyone who's ever watched an episode of Matlock knows that.
