Precision Immobilization Technique (or P.I.T.) is a technique used to end police chases quickly by spinning a vehicle sideways or backwards, usually directed towards a wall or a roadblock. At higher heat levels, the police will use this tactic more frequently.
In Most Wanted and Carbon, this technique is used by any police unit, even though police civic cruisers may not effectively perform such due to their low curb weight. In Undercover when a police unit attempts to perform a PIT maneuver, they are assisted by another unit to increase the potency of it.
PITs can also be used in Need for Speed: The Run on race rivals and police.
