This is a good thread
I wish uk TV stations did this. Or maybe not
New chase LIVE NOW
More links (I can't seem to get any of the below to work though)
Authorities in Pursuit of Stolen Vehicle in Norwalk Area
CBS Los Angeles
KABC News Live Streaming Video
I highly recommend Police Chase Alerts (@PCALive) on Twitter for live alerts to these things.
There's a live chase RIGHT NOW (and driving like a maniac)
LIVE: Police chase armed robbery suspect in Wilmington

EDIT - suspect neutralized - all over.
There's a new chase live right now... (it's not LA, but Fort Worth, TX)
ETA: Driver stopped, seems to be a standoff now.
Why are the police so rubbish at this? Is it because they might get shot?
They have a duty to protect the public so don't always aggressively chase if this would cause the suspect to act aggressively. High chance of suspects carrying weapons too. This is America after all. Thats why they shield themselves behind their car doors when pointing weapons.
I found myself thinking - why not just crush the car between the SWAT vehicles, then remembered it's not GTA.
Some real examples might help Rockstar fine-tune their physics models, though.
Bloody hell, it's still going.
Yeah I was thinking why not box them in as per the UK. But I guess bullets.
New chase on now...
Still going. After an hour and 3 pit manoeuvres. Props.
90 minutes +
I thought I'd missed it when I saw your post was 30 mins old!
I love how they commentate on it like it's sport.
"He had an opportunity to change freeway there, but he carried on"
"Yeah, he's really committed to the 405"
"After 45 miles and everything before that, fuel is definitely going to be an issue for him"
Naturally I’m watching it on my big telly via Facebook live. God I miss LA.
His front windshield is fucked, there’s no back windshield at all. Half the back of the car is missing and the back wheel looks ropey. Yet...
He's going the distance
He's going for speed
Don't they get a few dozen squad cars following immediately behind them anymore? Times change I guess and its not the movies.
Still, I hope he reaches the county border and freedom.
Is the plan to make it to Mexico?
They have 3 or 4 cars I think on this one, and standard practice is they keep a distance as long as the driver isn’t presenting an immediate danger.
81 miles to Tijuana
I was wondering how far south he may be able to go. Be about another 2 hrs I think to Mexico but he’d hit San Diego traffic first and obviously couldn’t just plow through the border (though that’d be awesome)
1hr30mins according to Gmaps. Obviously that's at the speed limit.
This traffic here will be a problem long before he hits San Diego
Only 45mph, too? Perfect speed for conserving petrol.
Guy's a pro.
No sleep til Cardiff-by-the-Sea!
This one is good but the funniest ones are in the hood where people come out into the street and start cheering. There was one once where the guy being chased was fist bumping his homies on the pavement and taking on supplies while being pursued. Funny as fuck. Especially when the news commentary has to be all serious and calling them ‘reckless’ and ‘idiots’
Windows up, he's lost a bit of weight from the bodywork, this guy is a professional.
I love how ridiculously inadequate the spike strips are accross a seven lane freeway.
I like how they blamed the scooter rider.
Comment from Facebook: "Is there a problem, officer?"
