Jalopnik: Cops Cruise Woodward Avenue On Nerd Chariots [Woodward Dream Cruise]

10 posts in this topic

The Segway was the high-water mark of nerd-tastic transportation until the T3 Motion three-wheeled chariot came along. The local police had 'em to patrol this weekend's Woodward Dream Cruise. And believe us, nobody respected their authority. Gallery below.

We actually feel kind of sorry for these cops. How can you project an air of control over an armada of the baddest cars ever built when you're scooting around on a ride more suited to a sci-fi convention ? These guys are showing up to a gun fight with a kazoo.

Actually, this is a good idea as the cars are not going that fast and it would be hard for a motorcycle to fit on that road between cars.

A very good idea as long as there are also officers available in normal vehicles, and these guys can radio the other officers if need be. It's an efficient and effective way to have police presence in cramped areas, and even though you could easily outrun these guys, you can't outrun motorola.

I've always wondered what that thing was...I see security guards at my school ride around on those.

If it were a pedal bike delivery driver, the Corvette owner would be in court on manslaughter charges.
