A high price to pay

Last night a motorcyclist outran police after they attempted to pull him over.  Sometime after - how long after we do not know - he crashed and is in a critical condition.

I have only two things to say about this.  Firstly, don't run from police.  Ever.

Secondly, police chases are bad.  I don't have an alternative, but we should not content ourselves with the status quo.  There are too many critical injuries and fatalities as a result of scared people making bad decisions in the heat of the moment.  And these people - or the innocent victims who get caught up in the chase - pay a price for what are comparatively trivial crimes.  Too high a price.
