Big Brother is Stopping Your Ride

I saw a recent ad on television for OnStar that showed a police dashboard camera view of a high speed chance. The police call the OnStar operator and they disable or slow down the vehicle and the police make an arrest. The ad says something to the effect of “OnStar helps save lives” or whatever. Just wondering, given the fact that most people don’t steal cars regularly and that high speed pursuits are very dangerous (I mean there is entire shows dedicated to the footage on Spike and G4), should this type of equipment be standard and subsidized by law enforcement agencies in an effort to reduce accidents associated with high speed pursuits or is it a little too Big Brother for you?
