I have heard of this law too, but the County Sheriff didnt follow that law, he went ahead and tagged me with a bunch of stuff. I hear he may be getting in more trouble then what he gave me though...

I've heard that it's law, but I know for a fact that they don't always follow their own rules...

Then when he puts the cuffs on you, and it cost you 2500 bucks later you will wish you pulled over and got that 200 dollar fine. But I have to agree if it would work I would love to see someone do it!

I did a little web searching on this subject. It appears that each county might have their own policy.

Here is an interesting account plus a link to the Hillsborough County pursuit policy.

That's not exactly true. I've personally been to court many times and won. It all depends on the circumstances......oh, and having a good lawyer doesn't hurt.

I agree with Jerry that the odds are against you when it comes to paying the $200 or less ticket. Either you pay with your life or expensive ass plastics, or as he said court costs.

I've always pulled over if an officer is directly behind me and they've always thanked me for not running and let me go with a warning. Of course I wasnt doing 142mph in a 55mph zone, but still I was breaking the law.

In my opinion, if a cop sees you traveling at excessive speeds then he can probably justify felony endagerment or something to that effect (felony wreckless driving) so that warrants a chase right there.

Bottom line. Don't run if you can see the flashing lights reflecting off of your visor.

if you run and they catch you, you can bet they'll break out them cuffs. that is if you don't plow into something first.

I watch cops all the time....basically the chase law is if the chasee is running the risk of endangering public or property as a result of the chase then the cop must back off and either quit the chase or relieve the pressure of the chasee wanting to cause harm. Don't think it works for bikes tho cause they don't cause much damage when hitting something as opposed to a car could plow over a crowd of people......
