Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe wants electronic device to slow down car in front

OVER at City Hall this morning, Met Police chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe was asked what he would like to see introduced to make car chases safer. He answered by saying a device could be invented to make it possible for pursuing police to slow down the car in front, electronically. It sounds far-fetched, he admitted to London Assembly members, but added – now channeling the script writers who came up with Knight Rider – that it could happen because ‘cars now have more of an electronic brain’. The exchange is worth watching to see UKIP’s Peter Whittle trying to register, on the spot, what he is being told: ‘A device to slow down… right, um’.
