This situation, like many others before it, shows that it never pays off to flee police custody, and a Kansas City resident learned that the hard way on Saturday afternoon. Despite the rising number of injury accidents and fatalities following police pursuits, many people continue to think they are going to be the ones to outsmart the law.
Clearly, when being pulled over by a police officer in Kansas City it is for the greater good to face the situation head on. Running only suggests guilt, judges tend to frown on the inability to accept responsibility, and the consequences to your drivers license, your pocket book, your liberty, and even your safety and welfare as well as the safety and welfare of others can be severe. Those who attempt to evade police and incite chases are endangering the lives of not only themselves and the officers involved in the pursuit but are putting in danger the lives of innocent motorists on the road with them.
