* A commercial for winter tires once featured cops trying to chase a pair of thieves in a snowstorm so thick that both vehicles are unable to move... and the guy in each passenger seat is trying to get the vehicle moving with a push.

* In ''Film/JeepersCreepers2'', a student injured by a vehicle crash is pursued through an open field by the Creeper, who's been ''mangled'' by the same crash. Played with in that, although reduced to one leg and one arm, hence a lot slower than usual, the creature still manages to ''bound'' after its belly-crawling prey.

It even switches camera angles to reveal that instead of being right on top of the doomed minion, as it originally seemed, Deadpool and the Zamboni are still halfway across the rink from him.

* Dramatic variant in ''Film/WeOwnTheNight'', where the heroes are simply in the middle of a commute when the bad guys pull up alongside them and start shooting. The ensuing chase is in pouring rain in mid-day traffic, through crowded and winding city roads.
