A demonstration of the Truck-Stopping device designed by Dr. Bill Wattenburg and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, that enables a police cruiser to safely stop a runaway or hijacked fuel tanker, by severing the brake lines, which automatically causes the trailer's emergency air brakes to deploy.
The TSD is designed so that accidental or intentional bumps by a driver that doesn't know the proper timing code will not activate the device. Only law-enforcement would have the knowledge needed to activate the devices.
