I've only had this once, but a lot of people seem to get it. More evidence that the AI tends to degrade over time into one big mess. It is good for a laugh though! :D

yea thats somethin that happens rarely... I've had the chopper, green pedestrian car and a heat 4 GTO all in one spike strip roadblock... and it was heat 5...

I find it weird how whenever they use a rig in a roadblock the trailer is always positioned as such to block the whole if the rig is in the roadblock formation where there's that one PC thats facing head on with you...the rig is facing head on..but the rig's trailer is blocking the road... this is really bad if they use the rig with the car hauler trailer.... since you cant drive under that :lol:

i had the rig instead of the helicopter. i guess the gamecube version cant handle helicopter roadblocks cuz after 3 careers, i havent seen it once.

Happens all the time, helicopters and rigs and such. I have only seen a rig used 3 times but the chopper once or twice. :)

Okay, so "all the time" isn't accurate, my point is is that the helicopter and I aren't strangers. :wink:

This has happened to me once before, and in terms of a road block, it was certainly a winner :lol:
I am against the fact that the helicopter acts like a concrete barrier against your car. Something which EA needs to do more research on...

yea a couple of time when i would be using the cement trcuk for a pursuit the heli would come up in a roadblock and i would try to plow through it doesnt work tho i wish it would blow up or get damaged like it sometimes does :( youd figure a heli would get annihilated by a cement truck going 120 + mph, but i guess not huh :?

You can never budge the heli, so if you can't go around it, then back up right away to avoid getting busted. Eventually the heli will leave.

The most unusual thing I saw was a civilian car on top of a police SUV in a road block.

lol, nice. I saw all kinds of things used for roadblocks, but by far the worst were spike strips with nothing else around at all. When you've become conditioned to looking for cars parked across the road, to suddenly come across a strip with nothing around it is quite a shock and near impossible to avoid once you finally do see it.

OMG i hate those once you see them its too late :x i have hit them quite a few time luckily there was a pursuit breaker nearby and i got away

I saw a helicopter smash through a SUV roadblock, that thing is like the irrestible object.
