Actually a lot more exciting than this still would have you believe.

If ever there was a compelling reason to get a video dashcam mounted in your car, it's got to be this video, in which a cop commandeers a civilian's car to take it on a high speed chase through the streets of Russia, where it seems that dashcams grow on trees like some wondrous viral-video producing fruit:

In fact, I think I've got to go out and buy one today, because I don't think I'd be able to take it if my car got commandeered by the police and I didn't have a dashcam installed. What's the point of even having a car if you don't have the slim possibility of getting it grabbed by the police and taken into hot pursuit of a bad guy?
