The New York City Police Department (NYPD) Support Services Bureau has received its first shipment of 100 Smart Fortwo cars with another 150 ordered. Last year, the NYPD ran a pilot with the Smart Fortwos, deploying the cars for parking enforcement in the five boroughs.

Unlike the three-wheel motorbikes currently used by the bureau, the fourtwos have air conditioning, making work easier for officers on patrol during the summer. The cars are also upfitted with a blue revolving roof lamp and police radio equipment.
