Mayhem loked out of the windows, "if you let me out near a fire-escape, I could get to the roof and shoot out the tires so it can't try to run us over."
And so it was. Just not as intended, for they merely pushed mayhem out of the car, forcing her to scramble to safety. She did get to the rooftops though.
(note#2: being an elf with no sillystring, I fight with guns and bows/arrows from a distance and usually never upfront, trying to avoid close combat)
