It seems like your case was a lucky coincidence, I mean you've already got 3 people disagreeing with what you've said from their experiences.

As soon as you get to the case ratings screen just dashboard and then you can retry without having to do the whole case over again.

How can I track this on the social club? Some previous poster said you could.

I wrecked the two hidden cars 3 time a piece and a few other random cars, about a half hours work and got the achievement. Wasn't that as bad as I thought it would be.

Just a tip. Destroy hidden cars as they are worth lots and make 1 or 2 trips to Hollywood Police Station and pick up a firetruck. It pays...

Then again, you could just destroy a bunch of hidden cars and unlock the achievement, but those two cars are the only ones with values posted on the Social Club Website.
It will probably have to be more of the hidden cars, because destroying those two hidden cars, along with some regular ones, only netted me $14,890

After you hit a save point, go to the social club (use your computer, laptop, phone, etc.) and login (you must obviously have previously linked your gamertag to the account). Click on "Cases" to see the case tracker. Click on "Traffic" (assuming you're doing "The Driver's Seat"). Check the top right corner of the screen to see your current damage. Once you see that you've enough, complete the case ASAP.

I used the fire truck method and racked up over $66,000 on vehicle damages alone (not including city damage and injuries).

Thanks for the information with how to track it on the Social Club, I wish you could simply do it in game however.

I almost have all of the achievements, I just have to find all the damn cars and five star the missions.

I was bouncing back and forth between these two (fast traveling), destroyed them 4 times each (engine fire, partner hops out), assumed that was good enough so I went and finished the case. I ended with about 41,000. So I re-loaded my last checkpoint.

New strat. The Walker Coupe is a POS and a gawdamn pain to drive so I went straight for the Phantom. Those bastards get up to speed real quick and get the job done. I destroyed it within 5 blocks and fast traveled back (they re-spawn surprisingly) and repeated 2 more times. 3 destroyed Phantoms gave me $19,000 and bumped my total to $60k for that cheev.

Thanks for the tips. Definitely beats destroying 50 cars.

I did this on your final Murder mission "The Quarter Moon Murders".

This is a great mission to do this on with the help of Rockstars Social Club site because there are 7 different places where you find a letter, and finding each one of those updates your stats on the social club site. I did this between finding those letters and checking the site and ended up with 55k of damage, so I wasn't wasting unnecessary time getting way more.

An effective method is to use the big International series trucks and just plow thru sidewalks - unlike cars, the trucks keep going thru streetlamps, benches, what have you without slowing down. This racks up the Auto and City damage penalties at the same time, and you're more than likely to rack up Injury penalties in crowded areas as well.

I went the fire truck method for this.

I wrecked probably 20 fire trucks and easily 100-200 cars (due to plowing into cars left and right with the fire truck), even went and destroyed about 10 Phantom Corsairs, had $2,000 in injuries, and $1,500 in city damage. I was so paranoid that by the time I got done playing the case (I chose the first traffic case since it's a very short, simple one) that I wasn't going to have enough damage, so I went WAAAY overboard.

$450,000 in total damage by the end of the case.

I dont think there is any real quickfire method on this, you have to spend time regardless.

I just decided to collect some of the hidden vehicles, i imagine some of the sporty ones are worth quite a bit. If you spend a while collecting and crashing en route to each vehicle location you are at least well on your way to the vehicle cheevo once you get the public meance one.

The Fastest Method found so far for Unlocking the "Public Menace" Achievement can be found in the Thread below:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=316908

Should take anyone around 5 minutes if you follow the Video Guide.

This is VERY easy to get in the first case. Just drive head on into cars that are moving and you'll almost certainly destroy the car. I did this and racked up $88,000 in vehicle damage alone just playing through the case.

Thanks for this helpful tip! Never could reach this amount of damage.
So a car is classified as being totally destroyed once it starts burning? Is that correct?
