** In ''Chinatown Wars'' for the {{DS}}, where the cops were memorably described in ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' as "having brick wall magnets attached to their bumpers."

What the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy does for marksmanship, this trope does for police driving. In RealLife, it's largely assumed that most law enforcement personnel are trained professionals in specialised top-quality vehicles when it comes to [[CarChase Car Chases]]. Their movie, television, video game, etc. counterparts, not so much. In fiction, especially if they're chasing the protagonists, they crash into [[FruitCart fruit and/or vegetable carts]], get cut off by closing railroad crossings and opening draw bridges, drive their vehicles into ditches or off cliffs, and run into any number of other snafus a real police officer (or anyone with a learner's permit) would know to avoid if at all possible.... and needless to say, the film-writers have apparently never even ''heard'' of police helicopters, since there's 'nary a one to be seen.

** ''Grand Theft Auto V'' - The cops are ''far'' more aggressive than they were in ''IV'', although they would rather keep ramming you from behind than try hitting you from the front or side most of the time... until [[DemonicSpiders the NOOSE units]] turn up, that is.

** ''Grand Theft Auto IV'' - Despite it's more serious take on the series, the cops that would rather sit at the side of the road and watch you speed by in a crippled minivan. This time the game spawns new cops ahead of you instead of making AI good enough to actually chase you. When they do chase, they almost drive reasonably.
