Government Fleet’s Top 10 News Stories of 2011

December 28, 2011

TORRANCE, CA – Each year the editors at Government Fleet like to take a look back at the top stories of the year. Two of the top stories were the results on the 100 Best Fleets list for 2011.

With Ford no longer manufacturing the Crown Victoria, public-sector fleets across the U.S. are putting a lot of thought into the next law enforcement vehicles they plan to buy, shown by the popularity of articles related to police vehicles.

Another popular story this year was about the City of San Diego’s fleet services operations being in managed competition. Although we reported on the initial story in February 2011, the issue was finally resolved in October.

Following are the most-read stories, based on our web analytics:
