to:

* ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls'': The cops pursuing Jodie set up a roadblock on the other side of a bridge. She decides to just go straight through it on her stolen motorbike, having Aiden conjure a force field that stops all bullets and knocks friggin' SWAT trucks out of her way.

* In the ''Franchise/SaintsRow'' titles, getting your notoriety meter high enough with the police (or other gangs, in the third game) would cause them to start placing road blocks consisting of SWAT vans or other heavy vehicles in an attempt to force you to stop.

* A minor occurrence in the first ''SinCity'' story (also depicted in the movie). The cops are chasing Marv on foot through the hotel. He drops out of the window and tries to go down the alley, only to see a cop car heading him off, blocking his way. He ends up jumping through the windshield to beat up the drivers and subsequently, take the car.

* It's possible to subvert this trope in ''NeedForSpeed Most Wanted'' and ''Carbon''. During a police chase, the police occasionally set up a roadblock in front of you in increasing frequency, depending on how much they want to take you down. While it's certainly possible (and fun ''and'' profitable) to simply smash through the roadblocks, if you want, you can simply take another street. That's right: the police are so adept at setting up roadblocks that they block off ''one'' street, giving you the option of as many as ''four other'' different escape routes. Brilliant.
