Trooper Bob Henderson of the VA State Police says there are a general set of rules and considerations to ensure safety during a high-speed pursuit.
1. Determine road environment.
2. Judge the weather conditions.
3. Determine if innocent people are in danger.
4. Determine motive of driver.
These regulations have prevented any fatalities from high-speed pursuits during the past year in the Augusta County region.
