Police Stopping Supercars in Monaco Is Part of The Action

With a supercar population as dense as the one in Monaco, the police plays a truly special role, as the officers have to deal with all sorts of drivers, some of which are more civilized than others.

Like pretty much any power-gifting instrument in the world, supercars tend to bring out the best and the worst in a man. And that's fine, as long as it doesn't lead to go-fast machine drivers stopping traffic in the city-state just to get their share of instant gratification via public attention.

More or less legal maneuvers aside, the compilation below allows us to get a good taste of what happens when cops pull over supercars in the said world supercar capital.

Truth be told, the conclusion here is that the officers show a balanced attitude - should the arm of the law get too long, the tourism can be affected, but if the authorities don't keep things under control, we end up with situations such as the one in the link above, which makes things unsafe and ruin the fun for everybody. Oh, and by the way, the incredible polish on all Monaco police officers' boots should give you an idea on how thorough things can get if necessary.

In our book, the traffic in Monaco is much less polluted by inappropriate hooning moments compared to what happens in another one of the world's supercar capitals, namely London.

It's not that the French air suddenly invites drivers to behave. Instead, the overly crowded streets mean everybody knows you can't stretch the legs of your high-octane machine inside the state no matter how hard you try.

Those who want to weld the throttle to the floor only need about one hour of patience - under normal traffic conditions, that's how long it takes one to get to the mountains surrounding the city.

However, we'd advise speed freaks to pay attention, both the tight mountainous roads and to the well-hidden radars that sometimes await them at high altitude.
