Dear P1 Member,

A recent high-speed chase in California ended with the help of OnStar — an electronic service provided by General Motors that allows operators to electronically disable the gas pedal of a reported stolen vehicle.

Obviously this represents a potentially invaluable solution to reducing the number of pursuits. Can emerging technologies like this make police pursuits a thing of the past?

Add your voice
to the discussion.
