Police Cruisers Going Retro

October 26, 2005

NEW YORK — Several police departments across the country are converting their police cruisers to the classic black and white squad cars from decades ago, USA Today reported. The police department in Mesa, Ariz., has begun a six-year project to switch its white cars with blue decals to a black and white paint job in an effort to make the cars more visible in low light and high illumination. In Wisconsin, where a similar change is underway, the new black-and-white style will prevent the cruisers from being lost in a snow storm, as can happen with the white cruisers currently used, the report said. The National Safety Council suggests that its members paint their fleet vehicles in lighter tones with varied logos to make the car more visible.
