The Tompkins County, N.Y., Sheriff’s Office has decided to phase out its “ghost” cars, or those that don’t have lights or easily visible markings, following through on the new sheriff’s campaign promise, WENY reported.

Sheriff Derek Osborne said it was a response to community members’ dislike of excessive use of the color black in its uniforms and cars. The department is also working on a brighter vehicle design and will phase out cars with an old design at the end of their life cycles. The new vehicle design will have a white stripe as shown below.
