"To foil the police, he installed a switch to kill the rear lights and bought two laser jammers and three radar detectors. He commissioned a radar jammer, but it wasn't finished in time for the trek. There was also a police scanner, two GPS units and various chargers for smartphones and tablets -- not to mention snacks, iced coffee and a bedpan."

If ya gonna do it, do it right.   8)

Lol, now all I can think about is the Chinese team in the film "Canonball Run", featuring a young Jackie Chan.

As with most movies at that time, Chinese and Japanese were bunched together. The team was Japanese but Chan, obviously, was Chinese. I think the language they used was gibberish, at least the Japanese. Chan probably used Cantonese, not sure.
