I witnessed a high speed chase in my city (Minneapolis) this summer. The suspect was driving a Mustang (looked like a Cobra), and was doing 110+. There were several officers in pursuit, but they were a good ways behind him. I know that a Crown Vic isn't a sports car, but I've read that they can go up to around 135mph. I love those shows like World's Wildest Police videos and Cops, and always love a good chase. I have a question and I hope it isn't a "bad" one so to speak. Does anyone know the percentage of high speed chases where the suspect gets away? I value my freedom too much to ever run from a police officer, even if I had a car that could do 180 and I could easily get away. All those shows feature high speed chases where the suspect always ends up getting apprehended. Do the police end up catching a good percentage of people who run? Obviously they aren't going to show people getting away on shows like Cops and the like. I've always wondered that. It seems to me that if you can get away before backup and the chopper arrives, that's the time to do it. Once the road blocks are set up and the chopper is involved, I'd imagine the chance to get away is very small. I would be shocked if the police were able to stop the guy I saw fleeing in the Mustang, simply because he had 1/2 a mile on them and was in a more powerful car. If this is a taboo question then a mod can just delete it. Thanks.
