Black and whites make a comeback
(2007-08-24)
(WOUB) - After falling out of favor in the 1990s,
traditional black and white police cars are making a comeback in Ohio and across the nation.

Ford, which makes the popular Crown Victoria cruisers, says orders for black and white cars rose seven percent for the 2007 model.

Police departments in Miami; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Hartford, Connecticut are converting their fleets to black-and-whites.

In the 1990s, many departments switched to white, blue or black
cars, saying the old black and white paint jobs looked too unapproachable.
