Good for the cop. In that traffic, he or the woman in the Boxster could have cause a horrible accident. He has her tag number, you can't outrun the radio. And instead of a ticket, she'll end up in the King county or Seattle jail when they catch her.

It didn't take horsepower, just a wacko driver to escape the cop.

I was tooling along interstate well above the speed limit. I spotted ahead of me a trooper, also traveling at a good clip. I eased off a bit, but kept him in sight...a while later another trooper came up from behind and pulled me over. First words out of his mouth was "Pretty slick, but you forgot we have radios".
Lesson learned.
