im just going to leave this thread.What if the person is driving from Melbourne to Sydney? You're saying the chopper is going to follow them the whole way until they stop then radio in to a patrol car with their location?
That sounds rediculous, you need to think before you post, how can you even bring the spikes strips used in the states as an example? The speeder obviously won't know he's being watched so why would they have a reason to flee?
I'm quite aware of the procedure, it even explains it for you in the article? Someone speeds, they give the patrol car the details of the speeder, patrol car pulls them over, is it that hard to comprehend?
The whole point of using a chopper is to catch speeders from the air, I think it's quite effective, it has nothing to do with reducing the amount of car chases? The patrol car still has to pull the speeder over and fine them.
its obviously going nowhere.
but going to say this
just because its in the "article" does not mean its the 100% truth.
do you really think the police are going to tell you everything about their operations and how they work?
i Highly DOUBT IT
and why not fly all that way?
have the idiot pay for all the costs of running a chopper added onto the fine. problem solved.
and i dont know, but have you ever driven from Melb to Syd on 1 tank of fuel? let alone at 150kph+.
i havent either. but im sure your fuel economy wouldn't allow for such a trip.
how do YOU know they wont use it for a while, and have other "surveilance" police car on the road.
just to keep tabs on where the person is at.
i dont know about you.
but im sick of all the PC Brigade saying not to chase these morons.
and this way will be safer to the general public by not instigating a potentially more dangerous chase.
and why not use spike strips?
havent you heard of the element of surprise?
all the sudden, bam! and they have 2/3/4 flats. im sure they aint going to be going anywhere quickly.
potentially long chase is dramatically shortened. saving your taxpayer dollars aswell.
and if the moronic speeder crashes into something. well good on them they brought it onto themselves.
if your against the whole "spikestrips" well why not have them?
who cares if they havent "done anything illegal". if they are speeding they are breaking the LAW. pretty simple. so yes they are doing illegal activities.
and for those who say about them crashing into others. its a simple solution of time and place. like all ways to stop offenders
its not rocket science. its just using simple methods.
and from now on im not going to bother posting in this thread.
all it takes is a bit of imagination and the possibilities are endless.
however if people want to be simple and straight, and not look into it. then so be it.
