Police cars are all about high visibility, and I applaud the black & white look. I just saw one on the way to work this morning. He was kind enough to give me a ticket..

After years of dressing up police cars in blue or red, adding fancy swishing graphics or nothing at all, more police departments are returning to tried-and-true: going back to black and white.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says the phenomenon is happening in towns across western Pennsylvania.

“Standard cars blend in. They’re not as noticeable as black and white cars,” Allegheny Township Police Chief John Fontaine tells the newspaper. “Plus, black and white is a nostalgic thing. It’s a traditional police car look.”

via More police cars are going retro — to black and white.
