Are they really doing PIT maneuvers at that speed?  That's infinitely more reckless than just ending the pursuit or following from a distance.  "He was going over 120mph so we figured a fatal accident was the best way to end things."

433: Are they really doing PIT maneuvers at that speed?


Short answer: Yes.

Georgia ramming/PIT SCOTUS case from 2007, Scott v. Harris. 8-1 decision. Appears to be the first time the Supremes reviewed a police video.

Yeah, Forsyth County would PIT the guy.

Repeat from last week's thread...

The other article said the GT-R guy had friends with him and they got away.  I wonder if they got caught too.
 
2022-10-03 8:43:47 AM  
I think the guy surrendered because he didn't want to see his car damaged by the PIT maneuver.
 
2022-10-03 8:45:07 AM  
Cops around here don't chase anymore, it's been deemed too dangerous.

Just get the plate and pick the guy up later.


I kinda doubt they could PIT a GTR unless the driver let them through inattention or some other thing that stops him from speeding up.

The penalty for such excessive speeds and eluding police should result in the vehicle being scrapped upon conviction.  The offender should be liable for all costs and fees associated with the scrapping.  This should include revocation of the driver's license for a minimum of five years.

Allowing these people to pay a fine with probation, and nothing more in the way of a penalty, isn't even a slap on the wrist.

My friends father, who was a cop, loved to say two things. "Well, off to violate someone's rights!" was the first. The second was, "You can't outrun a radio."

Before he heads to the slammer, take him out to the local auto recycling center and have him watch them crush his car into a pancake. Throw a party with the proceeds from the scrap metal.

They have dash cams and they capture the plate right?  Seems a simple matter to just show up at the dudes house the next day and arrest them.  But they rather risk their life, the life of the driver, and the lives of what ever family's  house they yeet this guy into because that's much more exciting, fun, and heroic.

Way to turn a bad speeding ticket that would have resulted in a fine and suspension into a felony with jail time and suspension.

An issue with that is that they may not be able to prove that the driver is the owner of the vehicle. They may be able to issue him a ticket, but a criminal charge may be difficult to prove.

Not the best driver. The GT-R can smoke that cruiser. Notice how the cop drifts into the other lanes and he just tracks with the awd. Don't run from the cops... On a highway in a city. In my stupid yuth I ran twice in rural areas without traffic around. They just drop chase, there's no backup or chopper to call in after they lose sight. That was those old crown vics too. Grandma cars you weren't catching anything that could corner and accelerate faster.

Police can always terminate a pursuit by stopping the pursuit.

Amend the law so that the vehicle can be confiscated and crushed or sold off at public auction.  They might end up selling the same car 4-5 times, while the owner(s) will still be on the hook for payments.

This is a fairly rural area. The chances of backup being nearby isn't great.

What should have happened is to terminate the pursuit for now and then show up at the idiot's door the next day with an arrest warrant. They have the evidence.

Actually, it could be seized and sold fairly easily. Don't let it come out of impound, and after the felony conviction sell it off.
