re: What were they thinking? Stopping a car

NO RATINGS
I like the "What were they thinking" patent series... I agree, why limit the scope with the 'without a high-speed chase' wording. Plus, the technology mentioned doesn't necessarily prevent the high-speed chase. Maybe the thief begins high-speed when he sees the cop trying to "read" the bar code... The 1st of the 3 'stopping means' is reasonable. However, the last two make no sense - endangering the public as the blowouts cause the thief to wreck into people/property... The concept is interesting. However, I am certain that thieves would quickly determine ways around this technology. Like spray painting over the bar code, removing the On-Star (or equivalent remote technology) fuse(s), removing the On-Star (or equivalent remote technology) antenna, etc. Back to the drawing board... The best way to bring the car to a stop - actually to a slower speed - [once the best technology is determined] would be to send the ECM/PCM into Limp-Home-Mode. Then, the cops could easily stop the thief in a safe manner.
