We get these US TV films about wildest police chases. Mostly very entertaining to watch. What puzzles me, however, is that the villains mostly use SUVs or trucks whereas the police use large floppy sedan cars. Hence it doesn't take long for the villain to decide to flee over fields or private property land. The police always follow suit like bloodhounds, though handicapped by their floppy cars. But they nevertheless hang on as much as possible, often successful because the villain makes a silly mistake and get stuck. But why does the police not use SUVs?
