This Italian Police Motorbike Display Is Incredible

We can't be certain when this video was filmed (the YouTube description says 1953, but it appears to feature Italian Prime Minister Giovanni Leone, who held the post from 1971-1978).

But regardless of when it took place, this display by police motorcyclists in Rome is really quite spectacular, even by modern- day (by which we mean 'OK Go') standards.

Presumably this was a good day to be committing crime on the streets of the Italian capital...
