When I was a kid, we had a method for dumping the cops off like that that puzzled the crap out of them. We'd get caught speeding and the cops would
invariably do this thing where they tailed you for a while before pulling you over. So when you saw the cop turn around and start following, you'd
take off into this neighborhood, and when the cop got there, voila! you'd vanished.
Eventually someone tried it with the cop too close behind, and our secret was out - one house had a garage with doors on both ends. On one side, there
was a driveway onto street A. On the other, a driveway onto street B. And the way the streets were laid out, there wasn't a close access from one
street to the other, you had to go around five or six blocks in a loop to get there.
So when they were tailing, we'd hit the opener, open both sides, zip through and close the doors. Poof! gone!
Some of the fun of young teenage life faded away the day the cops found the cutthrough. Alas.
