Rolling roadblocks, move over. There’s a new high-speed chase weapon in town

From time to time we get to cover some pretty neat stories about truck drivers helping out police officers who are in pursuit of a vehicle or even in a pretty bad spot trying to apprehend a suspect.

We covered one a few weeks ago that stirred up a lot of chatter on social media. In case you missed it, a truck driver pulled in front of a car that was apparently refusing to stop for the police officer in pursuit. Check it out here.

While that instance wasn’t a high-speed chase, it still brought up the debate of whether to get involved. Is it worth the risk to yourself and your truck, or other motorists, if your attempt to help goes wrong?

We won’t solve that debate here, simply because human nature still is to help. Saving your own skin is in the equation, too.

But, the Police World Facebook page is profiling a new weapon police officers can quite literally deploy to aid in ending a high-speed chase. Police officers seem to think it’s a great idea. You guys and gals see a lot more weirdness on the roads than anyone else. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

What are your guys thoughts on this ? I think it's great idea !Like Page Police World
