Central Texas Cops Could Start Using This Modern Day Lasso
Check this out! A Modern day version of a lasso for police cars!
Police now have an alternative to dangerous high speed car chases. With this lasso, police would have the ability to lock the wheels of a speeding vehicle and bring it to a controlled stop.
By pulling up behind a speeding vehicle and deploying the lasso, authorities can lock and puncture the rear wheels to bring the car to a halt. Some 5,000 lives have been lost in police chases since 1979, and the new lasso is the latest method being considered to save lives and help protect police from the need to engage in high speed pursuits.
The high speed lasso technology is being promoted by www.policebumper.com and is expected to help save lives.
Side note: Can you imagine a Demolition Derby with one of these bad boys!?
Here is another view of the lasso from Police Bumper in action.
