Is it just me, or do the tractor/trailers ALWAYS hit tollbooths?

and why do they drive somewhere on the middle of the bloody road... go to the right lane you!

I still remember there was one time where a chopper wanted to dodge me from the top. One time, that pilot made an error and dodge a container instead. The container flew to the sky, including the truck, finally coming down onto solid ground and spun for about a few feet, and destroying the road block in front of me which has just been deployed.

The most hilarious and fun scene ever! Wish I could have recorded it... :P

one thing that's bothered me from the beginning was that it was not possible to do a 180.
i've tried so often, bit i only get like a 100 degrees or so. even when i drag the handbrake while going straight then jerking the wheel to the left or right, it doesn't go all the way.

i know it SHOULD be possible, since my peugeot 306 was able to do that in real life!
(only did it about 3 times, though, since i thought it might not be good for the rear axle)

Haha! Another ROFL! :lol:

I had a scene similar to this one time. The Chopper hit the Corvette Cop and the cop car went flying all the way up. When it came down, it landed right on one of the Corvette cops in the roadblock and this glitch came! When the flying cop car hit the roadblock car, they both went down right into the ground and sank into deep Earth! :lol:

Speaking about cops, have you ever realised that their cars don't have engine sounds? :shock:

Parking brakes in modern cars are just that - brakes that should only be used when parked. They are quite a lot more fragile than the old 'emergency brakes' fitted on older cars and act on a much smaller, non-ventilated drum, or directly on the driveshaft itself. If used with force whilst in motion, you run the very real risk of tearing the calipers off their mounts and incurring yourself a hefty repair bill in the process.

You can't? Hex Magic.

There are some strange cop behavour to...
The way they can't follow you into a small side road or what ever without smashing each other to bits.
That if you turn off the freeways even if you've driven along the side of the road the cops just blast past you on the freeway
That some cop cars are anchored to the road and just move a meter or two even if you hit them at like >200 mph.
That one cop car can hold back >5 cop cars & you pushing forwards by going into reverse.
That before they've even joined the pursuit take out pursuit breakers.

Well, when you smash a road block in the wrong way and you fly over it, all Vettes coming after you fly asswell, and land all arround you, and guess what, you get busted. Now I wonder: how whould contributors like 8 police drivers ramming their tax paid cars at 180 mph against another?

Here's some more unreality I noticed the other day.

Roadworks on two-lane roads (1 lane each way) are not traffic-light controlled, so vehicles fight for the same lane in both directions. Bearing in mind what a litigious country the USA is (where I assume this game is based) and the generally poor standard of driving in Rockport, wouldn't this lead to the road contractors getting sued out of existence? :?

It gets worse in that when the dug-up part of the road is on the left, I was following a big rig on the right, cars came the other way and the big rig starts driving down the pavement! Has this game suddenly turned into Carmageddon while I wasn't looking? Thank God Rockport is a ghost town - or there would be dead bodies everywhere!

I really must take a picture next time this happens :D

I've gotten creamed against a wall a couple of times by a big rig changing lanes while trying to overtake them (from the wall side). They sure don't yield for anybody...

Ya, daytime headlights are now mandatory since ever during the day, a car with headlights on is more easily spotted than one without.

daytime headlights arent mandatory here in the US, at least not in the southern states, but most car manufacturers put them in their cars anyways. they're dimmer in the daytime than they are in the nighttime

Canada certainly isn't all bad. At least they had the sense to stay part of the Commonwealth!
