Yesterday's New York Times reported on an innovative approach to patrol car lettering in Westchester County, NY. Check out this 2009 Crown Victoria that's not quite unmarked. The decals are white and colorless. Why the near-invisible markings? Better concealment than regular markings, but not entirely unmarked and thus won't spook drivers who might think that a fake police officer is pulling them over. Guess that's a real concern for law enforcement these days, citizen worries of imposters? Anyway, it's a nifty concept. Read the story.
