Just watched Beverly Hills Cop and realized this is the film that has that funny pursuit of a truck I remember watching some time in the 80s.


Beverly Hills Cop 1984 Trailer:


Eddie Murphy is fun as hell and there are some cool car chases. About 10 minutes before the end, a large number of police cars arrive at the mansion where the final duel took place, and the manner in which all the cars arrive to the same spot from two different directions in front of the mansion reminds me so much of GTA San Andreas. Crazy as fuck. XD.png
One of the best soundtracks for a film too, by Harold Faltermeyer.

Here is the truck chase I mentioned:

I'm certain they make you back up with doubles. Not sure on triples but they probably do. In the real world you would find an open parking spot and disconnect the rear trailer(s) so you are left with one (or two) which makes it easier to back into whatever spot or loading dock.


As ignorant as America can be sometimes, if the pintle was a bad design we probably wouldn't use it for everything (military is completely pintle). It may not be automatic but it isn't too much fuss and as a good driver you should be back there checking connections and such anyway. sleep.gif

People say I'm crazy for running into burning buildings. I say I'm crazy because I do it for free.

The pintle looks like a much cheaper construction and I guess it's good enough for its purpose. I guess it's not meant to carry much weight as the trailers you use over there carry their own weight. Usually that is the case here too, but single-axle trailers are not very uncommon here, and if the trailer has only one axle the coupling must be designed to withstand a lot of down-force and up-force. These single-axle trailers have some advantages, they are shorter, lighter and cheaper, and much easier to maneuver. It makes sense to use a standardized coupling that works for all trailers, and we use the stronger type.

Our military use some simple couplings (probably a NATO standard) that looks like the pintle, but they are only allowed to drive at 40 km/h (25 mp/h)...
