Police Officers Use Smart Wheels & Hellip

Police officers remind society every day of the necessity of law enforcement. Everywhere you look there is always the presence of lawlessness and the need for the average citizen to seek protection and refuge from evil. When humans see police officers around, they are comforted in knowing that someone is fighting to maintain and protect the liberties they hold dear.

Police officers are most concerned about protecting the lives of innocent citizens, which is why they are on “the smart wheels,” high-tech police vehicles, to reduce fatalities. Have you ever seen a drunk driver speeding down the road at 100 miles an hour, or teenage gangsters speeding down a long highway en route to another city or state to protect themselves from a drug arrest for which they are guilty and should be placed behind bars?

Often, in these “wild-goose chases,” criminals take to speeding on the streets as a way to outsmart the police and escape the clutches of prison handcuffs. However, it is in these times that both criminals and innocent bystanders lose their lives. A few cases make the point.

Latia Winchester was an innocent bystander in her car. She was struck and killed instantly when she fled a routine checkpoint stop.

Robert DeWayne Davies and Ernest Shawn Davies (Robert’s brother) were both killed when they drove into a tree, speeding to avoid a ticket or arrest due to driving 82mph in a 35-mph zone.

Michelle Taylor needed to pull over for investigation, she was told by police. She turned on the vehicle, sped down the road, and was killed instantly when her vehicle collided with some nearby trees.

David Wayne Cox met his tragic end when a local county sheriff, speeding to catch a motorcyclist in violation of traffic laws, collided with David’s vehicle. David was intoxicated but was not the target of the sheriff’s chase.

All of these cases took place in the state of North Carolina within the last four months.

If this is not bad enough, law enforcement officials have lost their lives in the process as well. What has contributed to the increase in the number of traffic deaths in North Carolina, for example? The high-tech nature of police cars.

Think of what crime-fighting technology involves: crime-fighting technology must have installation in police cars. Navigation systems need installation. License-tag detection, gunshot detection, and vehicle surveillance technology need installation. All of the devices used to catch criminals and find locations of current crime and lawlessness require technology—which must be installed in police cars.

Technology of the crime-fighting kind requires a lot of intricate wiring and complex arrangement to ensure it works properly and will not harm policemen or law enforcement vehicles. However, when law enforcement sets out to catch criminals and speed on local highways to do so, the metal, wiring, and other vehicle materials (such as gasoline) combine to take the lives of law enforcement officials who were simply doing their jobs.

How should society as a whole respond to this complex issue? There are two major ideas to be considered. First, law enforcement must let their crime-fighting technology work for them. Instead of going after some speeding criminal, law enforcement should let their license-tag technology catch the license plate and use their vehicle navigation capabilities to find the address and whereabouts of the transgressor in question.

High-speed chases, by default, are a trace of the past—in days long ago law enforcement officials chased speeding criminals “not to let them get away.” Consider, too, however, that, in those days, no navigation, license-tag detection, gunshot detection, or vehicle surveillance existed. Law enforcement was forced to chase down criminals in order to catch them.

Today, there is no need for a highway speed chase with every lawbreaker that wants to get away. Even traffic lights have small cameras installed that, with one change of the traffic light, can get a clear photo of a driver’s license tag number. Law enforcement must no longer fear for traffic violations at traffic lights—and the same goes for other places on the highway.

Another idea for consideration is harsher penalties for speeding drivers. Those who desire to speed away on the highways when faced with a traffic ticket or legal penalty should be arrested and charged with attempted murder. Even if no one is hurt on the highways, there should be a clear message sent to speeding drivers—if you are told to pull over on the side of the road by law enforcement, give yourself up to law enforcement, or you give up some years of life behind bars.

This may not sound popular to many, since there are enough criminals in local jails, state prisons, and federal penitentiaries to form an entire country; nevertheless, the only way to force criminals to comply with the laws is to treat them as criminal if they do not comply. Law enforcement should not speed and chase them down (while taking innocent lives) to catch one lawbreaker. This may not bring back the innocent lives that have been lost, but it could play a major role in preventing the loss of life in the future.
