GPS darts track the bad guys

Maybe it’s the video game fanatic in me talking, but I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this before. The LAPD are set to mount an air gun in the radiators of their squad cars that can shoot out GPS Darts up to 60 feet.

The darts by StarChase are made up of some gummy substance that contains a global positioning tracking device, so the exact location of the getaway car can be known by all. This way, if the chasing squad car loses sight of the bad guys, they can still know where they are and figure out where they’re heading. It will also make things safer, they can track the car by helicopter and back off to prevent any disastrous road crashes.

All the cops have to do is turn to their trusty GPS screen and the high-speed chase can continue.
