    I would think a gasoline fueled drone would be an excellent tool for de-escalating high speed chases. The drone could simply launch and be guided by technicians at the sheriff's or Highway Patrol substation. Once on scene, police cruisers could back off and allow the suspect to proceed. Hopefully, with obvious chase car vehicles removed, the suspect might slow down avoid further reckless driving to blend into the background. Then, when the suspect stops or reaches an area where he can be isolated, the manned vehicles could be directed to intercept. Manned Helos do this now but it is immensely expensive to keep them in the air. Drones could be small and robust and present very little threat of damage or loss of life in an engine failure or similar event.
