    I believe he just has the rear LED's off. That is common place at my agency if we are grouped up like they were there.

    Too many cars on that chase.

    I don't see any lights on but the car is in the middle of the pack, so . . .

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    When there's a pursuit involving multiple vehicles, they do have other support units shut off code 3 and only have the lead unit run full code 3. Guess it alleviates the confusion and also the bouncing of siren noise off the buildings and confusing other officers as to where the other units are converging from.

    the guy who was driving was on the wrong side of the road just about the entire video and was swerving in and out on both sides of oncoming traffic. what a dildo.

    That was a great video on how NOT to conduct a pursuit.

    I kept waiting for a spectacular T/C of the car(s) in the opposing lanes...

    If their cars are anything like ours the fuses blew out during the chase.

    Or it was an Lt. and probably could not find the switch.

    Also the front of the bar was not activated either.

    And I agree with the others, how NOT to run in a pursuit, I know its the South, but you dont have to drive like you are qualifying for NASCAR. The officers were cutting each other off and making u-turns in front of each other. :wow:
    I would have dropped out or trailed way back blacked out and just waited for it to finish there was enough in the pursuit that they could do without half.

    I'm surprise there was no head-on crash. What a horrible video.

    Probably got caught up in the excitement and adrenaline and forgot to turn them on. Thats my guess. I had to turn that off halfway through, it made my head hurt.
