This achievement is obtained by hitting 50 cars with spike strips during the Cop campaign. Note that hitting other police cars during the Power Struggle races also counts toward this achievement.

First off, I would say to save going for this one until after you've finished the campaign for two reasons: 1) you'll naturally get spike strip hits during the campaign, so you don't have to grind all 50, and 2) you'll have faster cars unlocked which makes this much easier.

An easy way to get this is to go to the Level 2 event "Aggression Check". I used the Bugatti (unlocked at level 14) for this one. This map is easy because the cars are pretty slow and the road is narrow so you're almost guaranteed a hit. When the race starts, you can easily overtake the first car with your much faster car. Get a little distance ahead and wait until a straight section so it's easier to line up the meter at the bottom of the screen. Even if you don't line it up perfectly, you still have a good chance of getting a hit since the road is so narrow. After a hit, slow down a little so you don't get too far ahead, and repeat the process. You may have to move onto the second car after a couple of hits. Using this method, you can get 5-6 per round. Finish the round, rinse, and repeat!
