In the UK, that's not true - they generally don't have time to shut a road they have to anticipate whet route the perp will take, and hurry to get to a "choke point" where they can hide and deploy before the bandit arrives - and then get it out of the way of the police cars that are following close behind.

Here they use a "scissor action" device called STINGER 2000 Series[^] - it packs up small and will cover both lanes of a single carriageway road.
