Fleeing the police in a motor vehicle is a felony. The term “flee” means to increase speed, turn off vehicle headlights or taillights, refuse to stop, or use other means to elude a peace officer following a signal given by a peace officer to the driver of a motor vehicle. Fleeing in a motor vehicle also includes snowmobiles, recreational vehicles and motorboats. Convictions for fleeing the police cause a person’s driver’s license to be revoked and can also include vehicle forfeiture. It is a misdemeanor to flee from the police by any other means except fleeing in a motor vehicle (such as fleeing on foot).
