Wrong Way

If you are in pursuit of a vehicle on the freeway and the vehicle turns around and drives against traffic, should you continue to follow them?  It is generally a very bad idea to drive against the flow of traffic. 

A head on collision is very dangerous and you should avoid having one by not driving against the flow of traffic.  Drive to the next on ramp and go around, then follow them from the opposite side of the freeway.  Or pull to the side of the road and stop.  Often drivers won't go far by driving in the wrong direction.  Perhaps it's best to let the helicopter follow that dangerous driver.

Call other units behind you and have them be aware of the wrong way driver.  They may be able to stop traffic and block the emergency lanes with their vehicles to prevent the wrong way driver from going any farther.  Wrong way drivers are very dangerous and so is following them; that's what the SGT Says.
