Re "High-speed police chases are no place for trivial pursuit" (Viewpoints, April 8): Kudos to Bruce Maiman for calling attention to the tragic absurdity of high-speed chases by police. Before giving chase, police should ask themselves a very simple question: Will the danger to life caused by my chase be greater than the danger to life if I don't give chase?

This would eliminate the vast majority of these very dangerous and misguided police pursuits and the misery they cause innoent people.
