So I was driving home avoiding the main road with a huge rush of people on it. I look in my rearview and I see this black crown vic behind me. I didn't see a light bar, no bumps in the front, had the chrome hubcaps, normal WI license plate. Then I stare at this guy for a little bit and I realize it's an unmarked cop and I get in the right lane and he turns off at the next road.

Thought I was going to talk about a speeding ticket didn't yah?

I just thought it was odd, hard to pick that thing up. The cops in my town have a baby blue crown vic, that thing is REALLY hard to notice.

They have a black Monte Carlo in Raleigh. Not to mention a couple unmarked Blazers, and a couple Durangos or two. Here in Greenville, the campus police drive Impalas, Crown Vics, Blazers, and a couple unmarked of those sorts.

Three rocker arms later and I still haven't learned my lesson!

The police package Crown vics can be spotted by the dark wheels and sometimes by lights in the grill

The day I see a cop driving a ferrari is the day I sell my car and throw away my license.

In the UK they use BMW X5 and say that chasing is just like in a BMW car, usually a 5er

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
I have an immediate reduction of brownie points on anyone who drives a car that looks like an unmarked police car.

Traffic police don't get brownie points, they are always stuck at -9000, unless they leave me alone, in which case they have 5.
