The technique involves approaching a vehicle from behind and moving up along one side until your car's front end is approximately in-line with the other vehicle's rear axle. At this point, you must swerve carefully into the rear fender of the other vehicle in an attempt to cause its rear tires to lose traction. Once traction is lost, you must then brake, while continuing to turn into the other vehicle's rear fender and maintaining control. Managing acceleration/braking and steering are key at this point. When done properly, braking, then accelerating carefully into the rear fender of the fishtailing vehicle will cause it to make a complete 180 degree turn and to lose all momentum in its original direction, allowing officers to attempt surrounding the recipient, effectively ending the chase. This method can be observed by either waiting for chases to randomly happen, or to turn on the Aggressive Driving Cheat. This technique does not work for cops who are trying to PIT the player, as the player's car won't easily spin out and will continue to drive, regardless of numerous cops chasing him.

At this point, you must carefully shove the rear fender of the other vehicle in an attempt to cause its rear tires to lose traction.

# Pull alongside the 'suspect' vehicle.
 
# Nudge the rear wheel of the vehicle with your front bumper.
 
# Continue to steer into the suspect vehicle, pushing it around.
 
# The car should spin out of control (if not try steps 1-3 again).
 
# Slam on your car's brakes, jump out and kill the suspect.
 
# That's it, you've successfully learned how to perform a PIT maneuver.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*The body-on-frame construction of cars such as the Chevrolet Caprice and Ford Crown Victoria is an essential component of the ability of police cars to perform the PIT maneuver. Because of this design, damage to the vehicle's frame resulting from the PIT maneuver is minimized, making repairs far less expensive and time-consuming.
 
*The [[Premier]] is used as the police vehicle in both the [[Los Santos Police Department]] and [[San Fierro Police Department]] in GTA: SA, and is an ideal car for performing the PIT maneuver during the game, as it is seemingly based off both the Chevrolet Caprice and Ford Crown Victoria.

The PIT Maneuver or Police Intervention Technique, is a technique employed by law enforcement officials to end high speed chases more safely, and with minimal damage to police equipment.

Overview

The acronym PIT has many interpretations, including Precision Immobilization Technique, Pursuit Intervention Technique, Precision Intervention Tactic, and Parallel Immobilization Technique. The PIT maneuver appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as one of the tests in the driving school, and as a required technique during the mission Zeroing In.

Technique

The technique involves approaching a vehicle from behind and moving up along the rear quarter until your car's front end is abreast the target vehicle's rear axle. At this point, you must carefully shove the rear fender of the other vehicle in an attempt to cause its rear tires to lose traction. Once traction is lost, you must then brake and turn right to keep contact with the rear fender to sustain momentum and control. Managing acceleration/braking and steering are key at this point. When done properly, braking, then accelerating carefully into the rear fender of the fishtailing vehicle will cause it to make a complete 180 degree turn and to lose all momentum in its original direction, allowing officers to attempt surrounding the recipient, effectively ending the chase. This method can be observed by either waiting for chases to randomly happen, or to turn on the Aggressive Driving cheat. This technique does not work for police who are trying to PIT the player, as the player's car won't easily spin out.
