Actually, although it is much more common to see US tax collectors pull
cars over from behind, I have, on more than one occasion, seen them do so
from the front as well.  I am only speculating here, but I would suppose
pulling over from behind gives them better opportunity for pursuit in the
event of a chase situation, eliminating the chance for you to turn off onto
a side road while they are in front and can't follow.
