Damn, those Yanks are full of it!
Their dubious Fairfax County PD claims to have invented what they call the Precision Immobilisation Technique (with a “z”) – whereby they nudge the tail of a vehicle they are pursuing to force it to spin out.
Except the technique was invented SIXTY YEARS AGO by hot-rodders and is called NERFING! Every racer is familiar with the term.
Oh, and if YOU are nerfed – just steer in the same direction and GUN it to escape. Simple.
