Driver leads police on chase from Nelson to Otago

"Police arrested a 20-year-old man in Waikouaiti, north of Dunedin, shortly after 5pm on Friday. A police dog and handler were involved.
The man appeared in Dunedin District Court on Saturday morning charged with dangerous driving, failure to stop and driving while disqualified. He has been remanded in custody until October 18.
He had allegedly led police on three pursuits over 720km. Officers abandoned each one for safety reasons. 
It is understood the driver broke speed limits in towns and overtook cars including on double yellow lines..."

Police don't have radios anymore? I can't do a 30k trip down SH1 without passing at least a couple of police cars. Or is it the H&S monster...
