Laso Grappler To End Car Chases

A U.S. company came out with a kind of laso to help end car chases faster. right now there are two ways, get in front of the speeding car and deploy tire spikes or use the pit maneuver.

Now the company is trying to sell the idea to the police. What do you think? Will it be able to stop a F150?

Why wouldn't it be able to stop an F150? How would stopping an F150 be any different from what we're seeing in the examples presented in the video above? because it already answered that question. even if you just look at how the laso grabs onto a wheel there's no concern in regard to your question.

If this thing snagged a trailer that a pickup was carrying, and still managed to stop them effectively, I have no idea how an F150 would be able to be exempt from this. They displayed various types of vehicles and different methods of how it works and its designed to stop any vehicle from fleeing. If it can get behind you and close enough, an F150, just like the other vehicles in the video, will be stopped.
