As I noted yesterday, the Madison Police Department has purchased ten Dodge Chargers to replace some of the Crown Vics in its fleet. Ford has discontinued production of its iconic cop car as it develops its successor, so Police Departments around the country are being forced to look at other options.
As is the neighboring Monona Police Department...except, they are opting for the Honda Element.
Not that they have a lot of crime in Monona...but, I'd think having a Charger bearing down on an escaping criminal would put a tad more fear into the bad guy (or girl) than, ummm, an Element.
Just a thought...
