Spike strips have been outlawed in parts of America after they’ve led to the deaths of officers. According to the Dallas News, five officers died in 2011 while using spike strips. Because they are employed at a moment’s notice, spike strips also have the potential to incapacitate innocent drivers. Thankfully, in this incident, the strip worked perfectly, and police were able to apprehend the suspect.
