    LAPD to test squad car launched GPS darts to track high-speed chases

    Really, nobody is going to argue with the fact that LA's televised car chases are one of the top reasons to live -- and not to live -- in SoCal, but it looks like the LAPD isn't exactly as into the high-speed pursuits as we are, and are going to start testing a GPS dart system to spend less time chasing and more time catching criminals. They'll be equipping a few patrol cars with compressed air launchers to fire mini GPS receivers, embedded in a sticky goo the size of a golf ball. From there they'll just track the car's location instead of waiting for an 80 mph catastrophe.

    Take the receiver off and stick it to a dog/cat/cow/goat and let them track.

      My thought as well...stick it on someones car.

      Sticking it in a bull**** is probably better

        Some of the greatest plans in the world are destroyed with 5 seconds of rational common sense.

        I would like to have some of those it would be fun tracking things and people....
        You know you're an engineer if you have no life & can prove it mathematically.
