Most guys have imagined what it would be like to be a secret agent at some point in their lives. The man in this article seems to have taken things a bit too far, though!
There were some interesting driving-related expressions in the article, too. The first is ‘raced past‘. This means to move past someone very quickly.
It’s also mentioned that the police ‘gave chase‘. This is a nice, natural way of saying that they started to chase the vehicle.
There’s another interesting expression when the police refer to the speeding driver as a “would-be ‘Mr Bond'”, meaning that he is trying to be like James Bond.
The last word I would like to look at is ‘sortie‘. A ‘sortie‘ is an outing so when the author refers to the driver’s ‘nightime sortie’ he just means a trip somewhere at night.
