Added DiffLines:

In RealLife, people who flee from police when facing a minor moving violation have often committed other crimes, evidence of which will be found when they are stopped. A person who flees police is likely to either be driving on a suspended license, be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, have warrants out for their arrest, or have drugs, illegal weapons, dead bodies, and/or kidnapped children in the vehicle. Thus, there is some TruthInTelevision, but not to the degree usually shown.

* Roscoe P. Coletrain from ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' would gleefully shout over his CB that he was in "Hot Puuuur-Suit!" of the Duke boys, frequently followed by him driving [[LemmingCops off a cliff]] or into a lake when he couldn't match the Duke's driving ability.

* Video game example: In the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series, the police will chase you after a simple fender bender. If the chase goes on long enough (and enough officers [[LemmingCops get killed trying to chase you]]), SWAT teams, helicopters, soldiers and eventually tanks will be called in to take you down. Though to be fair, after the player has killed multiple police officers and racked up thousands of dollars in property damage, they have some valid reasons to call in the tanks and jets.

* In Creator/TerryPratchett's ''{{Discworld}}'' novels, policeman Sam Vimes exploits this age-old right of "hot trod" twice. In ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', he technically leads a pursuit across national borders in hot trod against the mad werewolf Wolfgang von Überwald - the local police recognise he has the right and stands back. And in ''Discworld/{{Snuff}}'', he claims the same right to investigate crime in the disputed Shires region; technically speaking, the Watch even pursue the criminals into Quirm and faraway Howondaland to make arrests.
