Minnesota State Patrol Squad Cars Get Retro Look

| |
In an effort to make State patrol vehicles more recognizable (along with spending tax payers’ money…), Minnesota State Police announced that they are giving a new or rather, a vintage look to their squad cars. The new patrol vehicles combine a maroon body with white doors and decals that are similar to the ones used from 1960 up until 1991. The current patrol cars incorporate a maroon body with a gold stripe on the side -Continued

"The new design aims to strengthen the identity of the State Patrol, enabling motorists to better recognize troopers and how the agency supports safe travel on Minnesota roads," said a State Patrol press release. "The squads will also improve the visibility of troopers - enhancing trooper safety and helping the agency stand out among other vehicles to encourage safe driving”
