Geez going to jail for evading in a "Smart car"?! If you're gonna try an escape the police in an under-powered vehicle, at least have the self respect to steal something cool like a DeLorean or C3 vette.

Are they kidding? You could have caught that thing in a foot chase. Were those cops to fat to run after him?.,,,,

Looks like the TV chopper just picked a random car driving down the freeway to be involved in a "police chase"?

Nah, the owner need to do an Italian Tune Up.

Just look at him slowing down through the first ramp off... The DOT truck was nice to him for not pushing him off the road....

This dummy was lucky, most chases in Arizona end badly for the driver. PIT maneuver or spike strips or crash followed by bullets.

They took pity on him, he couldn't even keep up with traffic.

according to google ---> According to Smart, the 61-hp engine can go from zero to 60 mph in about 15 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 84 mph for the driver's safety. (Cars as small and light as the Fortwo become very unstable at high speeds.)

the 84mph is also about the mechanical limits of a rubber band.
