Garden City Ghost Car

A few years back a video surfaced on the Internet of a police chase in Garden City, Georgia that has been dubbed the ghost car. In the video, officers can be seen attempting to pull over a white vehicle that is driving erratically. After following the car for a while, the driver swerves and makes a u-turn. The car moves off the highway, hits a dirt road, and comes to a dead end. It then moves to the left and disappears behind a chain-link fence.

The mysterious “Ghost Car” of Garden City, NY has been the subject of a few investigations. Could the car have jumped the 6-foot fence if there was a ramp in front of it? What if the bottom of the fence was unsecure? Could it just lift up like a doggie door, then drop back into place? After watching the video (more than once), we are left with more questions than answers.

Even more endearing is the child’s reason for stealing that car in the first place, then engaging in a high speed chase, and ultimately resisting arrest: He just didn’t want to go to church. Plain City, Ohio is probably just counting itself lucky his mom wasn’t trying to make him eat green beans; the ensuing slaughter would have been a national tragedy. Oh, and for the sake of justice and public safety everywhere, let’s pray he never hooks up with the 11 year old boy from Marion, South Carolina who also stole a car, and led police on a high speed chase. Eventually, he too was apprehended, his parents were called, and he was released into their custody. Then, when he awoke the next morning, packed his baloney sandwich (crusts cut off,) pocketed his comb switchblade, strapped on his KangaRoos, and stepped out the front door, he immediately stole another car and led police on another high speed chase. Two different cars, two different car chases, and two different arrests. All in under twenty four hours. All before he hit puberty. When his balls eventually do drop, the Earth itself will wobble on its axis. 5The Terminator Car Chase

Aw, they’re just playing up the ghost car angle by saying supernatural speed. Like “driving like a man possessed”. It does look like the fence to the right of the pole in front of the cruiser isn’t there. I can very clearly see the chainlink on the left, but not at all on the right. Even grainy, I’d have expected the odd glimpse of it, but nothing. But then again, if it were that simple, the cop on the night probably would’ve just gone through there.

The driver was never captured and it was revealed that the area beyond the fence was wooded with no roads. After examining the footage, many people have commented that the car traveled under the fence. However, this doesn’t explain what happened to the driver and why the police ended the pursuit. After the area was searched, the officers recovered the video and were shocked. The clip was featured on the television show Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, in which a stunt driver recreated the footage by driving through a chain-link fence that was weakened at the base. The stunt showed that a car is capable of traveling through a fence without knocking it over. However, it wasn’t filmed on location. To date, the original Garden City surveillance video continues to baffle watchers.

• Also, the test company must have a way of letting others on the street know who car owner is, if that vehicle is in a crash. They must provide police a way to deactivate the car and communicate with the car company. The car must carry proof of insurance.

Hard to tell for sure from the grainy video, but it looks as if the fence is open to the extreme left. The car may have gotten through there. The police car didn’t turn off at the same point, and so missed the opening in the dark.

I think you’re right, Doug. After I posted I recalled watching a man at a campground unhook his car from the back of a motorhome. Turns out he’d left the emergency brake on and burnt out the brakes while towing. The car rolled, unmanned, across the road and right under a chainlink fence and into the ditch beyond. There was minimal damage to the fence for the campground staff to fix, which popped back up just as it always had been.

We get the reaction, but we don’t do it, because we have empathy, and respect, and we understand that actions have consequences. In the end, it’s just not worth it. No matter how objectively bitchin’ it was when he tore that RV apart. Or how fun it looked when he drove right through that van. Or how hilarious it was when he floored it toward that one house, only to stop inches from the window, presumably just to enjoy the expression on the owner-lady’s face who heard the commotion and got up — expecting to see maybe a fire, perhaps a fender bender — and instead found an eighty ton war machine parked on top of her garden gnomes.

Currently in California, about 30 companies are permitted to test robot cars on city streets and highways. Current state rules require a backup “driver” to be seated behind the wheel to take control if something goes wrong with the computers, cameras, radar and light-based radar devices that typically guide robot cars.

Sacramento city officials meanwhile are pushing to become a test lab for the new technology. Last week, Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Rep. Doris Matsui and Kings basketball team general partner Vivek Ranadive held a meeting with members of the industry to encourage those companies to locate tests here.

One of the most talked about urban legends comes from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. The legend says that an actor can be seen hanging himself in the film. The controversial scene appears at the very end of the Tin Woodsman section of the movie when Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, and the Tinman start walking toward the Emerald City. In the sequence, an object can be seen for a brief second between two trees in the forest. The camera is not zoomed in, but it looks like a person swinging in the trees. For this reason, an urban legend was created that suggests a munchkin can be seen committing suicide.

DMV regulators say they believe the new rules strike a balance of advancing the technology and making sure the testing is done safely. Autonomous car companies complain the rules are too rigid, though, while consumer advocates say the state is looking out enough for public safety. DMV officials conducted a final public hearing in Sacramento on Tuesday, and say they now will finalize regulations they hope to have in place by the end of November.
