UK police can now cut off your car engine from a distance

According to The Sun, General Motors’ Onstar global positioning technology tracks the vehicle so cops can locate it.

They then contact operators who can send out a signal to the vehicle - slowing the car by cutting the fuel flow.

The US giant hopes the Stolen Vehicle Slowdown system will reduce chase accidents - and plans to install it in 1.7million new cars in 2009.

It may be fitted in the UK in GM brands Vauxhall, Saab and Daewoo. (ANI)
