    Me and my buddy did this back in high school. Back then the hwy patroll was using mustangs as cop cars and my buddy had just bought one. We had the great idea of installing relays to make his front head lights flash and put a pa in. None the less we had a guy laying on the ground spread eagle. As I can remember he gave us one hell of a chase after that!
