I've always wondered what's going through people's minds when theyrun from the cops. I mean, if you're in a major city with a largepolice force and helicopters flying around, there's not a good chanceof getting away safely. Well thanks to some new technology, thesepeople might actually be able outrun the cops. Of course, what theydon't know is that they're being tracked.
Much like Han Solo and the gang escaping from the Death Star, theywill be allowed to get away to some remote location where the policecan then quietly gather a large force and surround the perps. Thelittle gadget responsible is a small GPS receiver, wireless transmitterand battery all wrapped up into a nice bullet-shaped package. It wouldbe fired from a device mounted on the bumper of a police cruiser.
This is something I hope they implement sometime in the near future.This would eliminate the need for high-speed chases, and thus preventmany needless injuries caused by wreckless driving.
