    What is the difference and what would a motorcyclist who runs from the cops in excess of 150 mph look at for charges I'm just wondering.

    He said he shut off at 130. And there were no police involved.

    At speeds like that, I'm pretty sure it'd be a felony charge, compounded by whatever other charges the officer can think of....

    Absolutely felony. The bike would be the least of your worries. Your doing prison time or eternity in a grave when you rear end a pickup at 110. I've seen both.

    we can only hope they crush the bike. don't know who was on it, don't particularly care but hopefuly the judge would crush the rider under the hand of justice as well

    In Virginia it would definately be a felony. ANYTIME, in a pursuit, if the fleeing party exceeds the posted speed limit by 20MPH or more, law states it is an automatic felony. It can also be a felony under that speed if other criteria are met.

    If the person who is fleeing the police did not commit a felony (say you clocked them going 10 mph over, and they decide to run) police cannot pursue?

    Is this true? I heard they will not chase because it is not worth the risk to other civilians

    Really depends on where you are... varies by department. RI County here is no pursue unless original charge/reason is a felony. Individual departments within the county can/will chase for anything while others have no chase policies.*

    * also not leo or lawyer...

    Depends of the individual Department policy.

    So if the fleeing person did not commit a felony, you will risk the lives of other innocent civilians to try and catch them? I am not saying you are the bad guy, just saying that the risk of killing other people skyrocket during a chase. Is it really worth the risk of having a fatal crash to apprehend somebody who is evading a speeding ticket?

    If that's the case, then noone will ever get another small non-felony ticket. Everyone will know to keep going knowing they cannot be pursed.

    Getting pulled over for tinted windows or missing front plate...just run because the cop cannot pursue you since the original crime is not a felony. Get clocked at 70 in a 55...well keep on going because the cop cannot pursue you for the same reason.

    Really think that's going to happen?
