Seriously, this is the kind of statement that sounds horrible, but means absolutely nothing. The cop could have done any greater speed than the target and caught up, from 1/2 mph faster, up to the speed of light.

Of course, I also realize this has nothing to do with Havener's post, much less the original post, so I'll shut up now.

Which is why over here the highest speed quoted has to be constant.

The widespread use of video has pretty much ruled out the "donuts" defence....anyway, we all know you would never put down your donut, you'd finish it first :-)
