One thing about CSP, they seem to chase anyone for anything, I can't imagine them (trying to) chase a crotch rocket down out of the mountains with a car, or even another bike. Why not just attempt to get the tag first, then back off if they run? (Unless it is a known murderer or terrorist)

Anyone have any other opinions? I like to hear a good chase, but not if there is an excellent chance of someone dying---

Most all pursuits come back almost immediately as a stolen plate.

Opportunity comes in many forms; this one happened to be a fast bike. Or, the owner reported it stolen right before he decided to be an idiot. Or was that after he decided to be an idiot?

I often hear CSP call off chases, I think many things go into the ability to continue or start a chase, speed recklessness, danger to others, road conditions etc. I don't think they even come close to chasing every car they could or should. I do however believe that any time a emergency vehicle runs hot it is dangerous and could end bad, this is why we hope that all law officers are properly trained.

Thanks for the replies; I forgot to mention that it seems to me that most city or town jurisdictions are very reluctant to get involved with the CSP assisting in a chase, and usually will not if they find out it is only for traffic charges. One thing is that if air one is up when someone makes a run for it the outcome is usually different---Probably won't happen as often with the price of fuel skyrocketing tho :p
