It's been a while since I looked at this product (saw it over a year ago) but I thought I read or saw in their video that the officer pre-aimed the sticky cannon at the suspect vehicle and if they peeled out when the cop was standing there they could hit a remote control button and fire the tracker. Seems like the goo used to hold the tracker on would also get all over you if you tried to peel it off and then with a black light the cops could later determine that you had the goo on you. At least that is what I thought they had already implemented, or were going to.

9 times out of 10 the suspect gets pulled over and the officer walks up to 
the car, then the car peels out and takes off.  So the officer isn't in his 
car to fire the tracker.  So the tracker could be about the size and weight 
of a baseball that the officers carries with him when he makes a stop.   If 
the car peels out, then the officer throws the tracker, like a baseball, at 
the car.  He might even have the chance to stick it on with his hand.
