A high-speed car chase through several Wangaratta streets has been described as "a serious accident waiting to happen".
Police allege Annaliese Kirchen was behind the wheel of a blue Kia as it hit estimated speeds of up 120km/h on Sunday afternoon.
Kirchen - who was arrested on Thursday and faced Wangaratta court on Friday - allegedly sped off when spotted by police on Rangeview Avenue before travelling on Appin and Sales streets, with a man jumping to safety on Hinchley Street to avoid being hit.
Officers were forced to stop as the car went onto the wrong side of the road at high speed at the intersection of Oleary and Phillipson streets.
Kitchen was already on bail after allegedly stealing and torching a car.
Leading Senior Constable Heath Dosser said she had a "complete disregard for the orders imposed by the court" and opposed her release.

She "will not hesitate" to re-offend if released, he told the court, and had previously committed crimes within 24 hours of being released from jail.
The court heard Kirchen had taken the Kia from a friend in Wodonga earlier in the day.
A witness saw the vehicle loudly revving in Wangaratta about three hours before the pursuit.
Despite her alleged desperation to avoid police, she was taken into custody without incident at her boyfriend's Rangeview Avenue home by officers.
Kirchen told the court she had been doing well on bail and wasn't behind the wheel.
"I was not driving that car and the only witness is a police officer," she said.
Magistrate Ian Watkins refused bail on charges which include recklessly engaging in conduct endangering death.
"They are serious charges against her," he said.
"This is a serious accident waiting to happen."
He noted she was an unacceptable risk of reoffending.
Kirchen will return to court on September 21.
