was perusing youtube, and watched this video of Brazilian moto cops chasing this biker. I've seen other videos where other countries use motorcycles to get medics on the scene quicker until the ambulance arrives. it's a shame that in the US moto cops are under utilized. years ago while working for EMS, proposed an idea to my superiors about establishing a motorcycle response unit to get to calls quicker to triage and stabilize patients until the ambulance arrived. it was turned down because of liability issues and they wanted to put more ambulances on the streets. found out that the city council had looked into this, and BMW was offering free bikes. but it never happed. any way here's the video I just watched.

30 years?! I don't know why this country always thinks we're ahead of every body else, when other countries are more pro active. thanks for the article and picture.
