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.

Bloody hell, it's still going.

Yeah I was thinking why not box them in as per the UK. But I guess bullets.

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"

:D

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

Etc

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.

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.

Is the plan to make it to Mexico?
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 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’
