Oregon police throw spike strip just in time

The spike strip is thrown in perfect time to stop a speeding driver, who loses control of the vehicle moments later.

As officers we have to commit to not throwing spikes unless we are behind a large tree, bridge column, or other barrier that will stop the suspect vehicle should he try to hit us. But we have to commit to this tactic before we are in the middle of a chase like this and adrenalin takes us somewhere that isn't safe in the heat of the moment. Not a criticism, it worked, but I have lost a co-worker this way so don't do it.

It's not how you SHOULD deploy a stop stick, but it worked... So leave it alone!

I'm pretty sure this is a law enforcement "what not to do" instructional video.
