be it trying to take off with an ATM
As this Channel 7 news report explains, the crim put the police through a two-hour chase that started in Clarkson, Western Australia and ended in Wilbinga. After considering his options, he drove straight into the water. Rather than follow, the police just waited for the tide to come.
Despite Google Maps’ previous reputation for allowing one to kayak over the ocean to reach various destinations, I couldn’t get it to plot a path from Wilbinga into the sea.
Which bodes well for the company’s autonomous cars I suppose:
The drive is around 30 minutes, but the thief spent a bit of time cruising the beach before attempting his short-lived aquatic adventure. Note to self — if I’m going to steal a vehicle, best nab one of those amphibious APCs.
