I guess things must be pretty different in Northern Ireland. My experience has been that when police around here want to stop a car, they turn on those annoying flashy lights on the roof, and sometimes they use that really loud whoop-whoop thing.

On a more serious note, what's under discussion here -- the ability of a round to penetrate sheet metal, windshield glass, etc. -- might be pretty important if police wanted to shoot the driver, given that the driver is invariably inside the car.
