Roman, Harry T.
Technology Teacher, v68 n4 p33-35 Dec 2008-Jan 2009
All too often, one reads about high-speed police chases in pursuit of stolen cars that result in death and injury to people and innocent bystanders. Isn't there another way to accomplish the apprehension of the thieves that does not put people at such great risk?
