Forget Russian dash cam videos, today we've got an American one, taken straight from the police patrol vehicles. This, of course, involves a chase and any pursuit that ends with a PIT maneuver that doesn’t harm anybody and causes minimal damage can be called “ideal”, as you'll be able to see below.
The adjacent clip brings us to Iowa, where to police is chasing a stolen vehicle, with the driver obviously having no intention to pull over. The officers try to persuade him to do so for about six minutes, but eventually they use the classic lateral ramming maneuver known as PIT.

It’s all done in a clean and, more importantly, efficient manner, with the carjacker being brought to a halt with ease.
