OPP Public Safety Balancing Act - High Speed Chase Halted!

Kawartha Lakes Mums- Do you sometimes wonder why police stop pursuing a vehicle? OPP recently needed to make a difficult choice again , to stop perusing a vehicle for public safety reasons. In some SciFi movies we sometimes see police having remote access to vehicle ignition. If such an innovation were to be mandatory in vehicles, do you think it would make a difference?
