I think a couple other great tips would be:

Do not drive drunk
Do not drive while blind folded
Do not drive while sleeping
etc...

I go through the toll booth at 70/80 all the time

Wasnt a chase. 52 yr old guy who was prone to seizures reportedly had one in teh morning and then another while driving. Reason the cop came on scene so fast was he was parked just up the road.

I was going to say, it looks like the cop is coming from an angle right when he enters into camera view, as if he was off to the side. That's a decent size fire at the end.

I saw two stupid MFs waving their Ipass out the window when driving on the open toll by Ohare And I thought I was dumb as a box of rocks Actually I should slow down thru the Barrington Toll...on the bike, I'm way too fast, even in the car I roll thru at 80.

I forget which ones, but there were some toll booth that Peanut and I went through that say Go 5 or 15 or some such...but they have an intentional buckle in the pavement that if you go too fast, bounces your ass up in the air like hitting a speed bump at 80. I nearly ejected through my sunroof!

I've since learned to take those a littler easier. Open road tolling is a whole different thing.
