my bike can outrun helicopters :-)
copters usually only make sense for traffic enforcement in places where its open and flat. in that heavily forested, mountainous region pictured, I don't see what is to stop the biker from taking a side road completely obscured from the air.

It seems that the man-hours and fuel/equipment expenses that would be incurred by actually using the helicopter to stop the bike - then land and give him a ticket(!) - would far outweigh the monetary gains that could be expected by the county for issuing the citation.

I'll bet there's more to this story.

The way you get away from a chopper is too head for an airport they can't fly over those. Then you got into a covered parking call a friend with a truck. Load the bike laying down in the truck cover it with tarp then split out of the airport. Not that I would know or anything.

In the days of "War on Terror" I would doubt that an airport is the way to go. Too many cops and radios.

someone watched too much gone in sixty seconds... the helicopter can fly over the airport it just needs to notify the control tower and make sure its not interfering with a takeoff/landing already in progress.
That picture is all posed and professionaly looking my guess is that its from a PSB about cops and helicopters they prolly used in an area where they were having problems with motorcycles.

Not real easy at a busy airport. And you have to remember a litre bike can go faster than most helicopters. So they would have to get clearence real fast to fly over airspace at airport and they definetely can't fly in a covered parking garage where you can wheel the bike in a stairway until your buds get there. Again, not that I pretend to know about these things.
