A common situation met by many criminals driving around which 95% of the time ends up with criminals being arrested (screenshot taken 1 year ago, things did not change up to this day)
As a criminal, especially driving alone with stars, you dread it, you know they will catch you, it requires no skill, just numbers. A situation in which you are gunned down almost instantly by a cop car usually with more than 4 people "in" it, with no intention to even RP like in the old days. Yes it happens often, and I experienced it many times when I just wanted to drive around and relax.
Now don't get me wrong, there are still some cops in the server who are looking to stop you and RP, but this is the most common way cops deal with criminals outside a criminal activity besides base raiding.
Most of the cops opinion on this would be that I'd have to take friends with me everytime I drive around but really, is that a possible scenario? Can I get 5+ of my gangmates to protect me while I just want to drive around every time? Not really, most of the criminals drive around with a friend, 2 or 3 at max and still have no chance against the usual 10+ cops on a car.
The simple solution? end the drive-by script, for both sides.
It is the most fair way possible, cops can take you down, you have a chance to escape, and afterall, it is a much more fun and rewarding experience for both sides.
EDIT #1: another maybe more fair solution would be only to allow the colt and taser, so cops can shoot down the tires
