1. A stall-to-stop and lock disabling or vehicle slow-down system for slowing and stopping a vehicle and locking passengers inside the vehicle wherein the vehicle includes a transceiver carried by the vehicle, and a stall-to-stop or vehicle slow-down system and a lock disabling system that are interconnected to the electromotive system and the locking mechanism of the vehicle, comprising:

  • monitoring equipment located at a determinate monitoring site that is remote from the vehicle and that is free from contact with the vehicle;

    at least one cell phone tower interconnected to the monitoring equipment for sending signals thereto and receiving signals therefrom;

    at least one GPS satellite capable of sending signals to the monitoring equipment and receiving signals from the monitoring equipment;

    the GPSwherein the at least one satellite or the at least one cell phone tower is capable of two-way signal communication with the transceiver on the vehicle; and

    whereupon a distress signal made due to unauthorized use of the vehicle or an uncontrollable vehicle in use sent by a mobile, portable, or fixed communication device to the cell phone tower or satellite causes a signal to be sent to the monitoring equipment which then communicates with the GPS satellite so that the GPS satellite can locate and communicate with the transceiver on the vehicle regarding specifics of the distress event parameters so that the monitoring equipment and can send a signal to the cell phone tower can exchange signals or satellite whereby the cell phone tower or satellite transmits to the transceiver so that the transceiver can execute commands that actuate the stall-to-stop or vehicle slow-down system and the lock disabling system for stopping the vehicle and locking the vehicle so that anyone inside the vehicle remains in the vehicle, wherein the communication device is remote from both the vehicle and the monitoring site and is free from contact with both the vehicle and the monitoring site.
