Way back in college my roommate and I imagined a cable network dedicated to car chases. It would need to be a careful balance - provide entertainment to the viewers without glorifying the criminal. You want to make the most of the ones that occur but certainly not encourage people to do it for the fame.
For awhile there Fox had a dreadful show. It was was scripted, full of fake sound effects and while the off-screen voiceovers did paint the runner in a negative light, it was so over the top that eventually all of the viewers of the show learned to watch it with the sound muted.
But I've never understood why no L.A. station bothered to differentiate itself by adding useful information that would make the broadcast more interesting and informative while taking advantage of modern advances in design, mapping, video games, etc.
To that end, I present a quick idea I hacked together. (When did Photoshop get so complicated and counter intuitive?)
