If I run over pedestrians or hit other cars while driving through the city, what exactly are the consequences?

    I love it when Gaming.SE questions make the StackExchange 'hot questions' list. They sound so... WTH?!?!?!?! Nov 20 '11 at 2:56
  • Other than the revoking of your driver's license, spending some time in jail, loosing your job... I suppose there are 'moral implications', whatever that means. Nov 20 '11 at 2:59

Your final rating (1-5) for each case is affected by hitting cars and pedestrians. The full list of things that affect your full score are:

  • Number of clues found
  • Number of questions correctly branched
  • Damage to vehicles
  • Damage to city property (running over fire hydrants, etc.)
  • Inflicted injuries (including running people over)

Those bottom 3 are applicable to driving. If you want to get a high case rating and are a bad driver, let your partner do the driving.



If you run over pedestrians or hit other cars it lowers your total score at the end of the case. They're not the easiest to run over though as they jump out the way, but if you do you get a notification that informs you that it's not really what police officers are supposed to do and that it will impact your case grade at the end.

In terms of hitting other cars, it's exactly the same story. From memory though, you don't get the notification for it.

So in short: If you want a perfect grade for a case. Don't hit cars and don't run down pedestrians.
