i know talking on the phone and driveing is bad, but way to show every one bubba!
I wonder what the note on the phone says??--"Out Of Order"??--"Dial 911 For Emergencies"?? !!
If you could ask my wife about my calls home, she'd tell you that isn't the way it is...............
you have to admite that is one stout phone booth!!!
Bubba phone home!
BUBBA,i alway's forget to ask MIKE. why are the rim's like that on cop cars? flat on the out side? the newwer cars anyway.
Yes, and they suck for the dirt and mud cause they collect that stuff and it's hard to get out. But they handle better than the older model wheels. Now since I never drove my old car hot in the rain, I can't do a fair comparison, but these new ones seem to hydroplane bad, or maybe it's the fact I was hauling butt.
I really like the Crown Vic as a patrol car. There are several improvments I would make. More power, which they did this year and from what I hear, those are faster than the old ones. I would also add some more weight also. They like to float at speed on the dirt and hydroplane really bad. I would also change the shock package on them. These shocks suck for those long, sweeping curves cause they are speed sensitive and in those curves, the car leans bad.
<--------------praying for a pursuit Tahoe next year
I concur. Give the CV some more power and better suspension and life would be better. In tighter areas with sharper turns and lower speeds I actually prefer the Impala. Neither are great in my opinion though.
thanks for clearing that up BUBBA. i'll pray you get the TAHOE
I would also like better brakes on the darn things. Last night, I was running to a fight with weapons involved call and it was pouring rain. I let off the gas (I was running about 110 at the time) to make this slight curve (4-lane changes into 2) and I missed the darn thing so I lightly get on the brakes to get the thing slowed down to make the curve and tires start locking up on me. Don't know how the heck I pulled that save out of my butt, but I continued. Then I get into town and I've got a turn to make so I get on the brakes lightly again, and same thing. I ended up sliding for a few feet before I was slowed down enough to make the turn.
Just another night in the life of a deputy sheriff
Sounds to me bubba like you've been having too much fun lately.
Well, I'm trying to decide if last night was a good night. I'd been on a streak of nabbing a DUI every weekend I've worked for the last month and a half. The streak got broken last night.
Now, on the otherhand, I went to a barfight Friday night, and last night went to a domestic and a fight with weapons, total Code 3 driving distance, about 50 miles. No paperwork.........................
Kind of hard to decide
Do you ever have odd moments of philosophy at the ideal state of the world destroying your job
Would that be along the lines of when I missed the curve last night and the one item I failed to mention I happened to be on the radio at the same time and I just quit talking, never released the mic button and made the save one handed??????????????
No, I meant, as interesting as policing is, it's neccesity speaks of a cruel world
LOL, that reminds me. One time under similiar circumstances, I didn't let off the mic and broadcast an improper word. Not like the old days though, we use an 800mhz system so we are not monitored by the entire world anymore.
