    Unmarked Explorer traffic units have been used in our area for some time and they are difficult to spot. Look for antennas and be wary of anything boxy parked along the road.

    The spot lights are the giveaway too.

    For years, I was able to spot the Crown Vics from a distance....even at night because of the parking lights. I do get a bit nervous now, even when I see a civilian Explorer:confused:

    The chargers are easy to spot at night with the unique tail lights.

    Yep make them harder to see.. then they will complain when they get hit along side the road.

    Hey chief, how is it going? We have a law now that you have to go over one lane when police have someone pulled over on whichever side of the road. In New York anyway.

    I think that is pretty much a law everywhere.. don't mean much they still get clobbered all the time. Me and the state patrol never have got along. I have no problem blocking the whole road while me and my guys are working a accident scene. They think we should let traffic flow so a gawker can run over one of us. Never understood that. If we have things under control on scene and traffic control set up its fine.. but not when we are working..

    I agree that doesn't sound right either. Same laws should apply for road crews as well. I have seen over the years an exhibit at fairs in the summer for DOT. With accident pics of damaged state and municipalitiy vehicles. If you are putting your ass on the line working the shoulder, my prayers and thoughts are constantly with you and all of your coworkers

    The ones here in town are completely unmarked and even have "Seahawks" stickers in the window to blend in. I just keep an eye out for very basic Explorer, Chargers and Tahoe's. It's the only way to tell. They even have regular plates now.

    In SC they are even in unmarked Ford Focuses! They have crown Vic's, Chargers, Explorers, tahoes, Challengers, and the other day a Ford Focus. I was pounding down the right lane (slow lane) while everyone was crawling along in the middle and left lane (3 lane I85) at 60 and I was going about 85 mph. I popped in front of everyone and the lead car was a Focus. I got in the fast lane right in front of him and bam....he nailed me. When he came up to the window, I was laughing so hard it made him laugh. I said, "that is dirty man".,.,he said, "yup, but effective". He had a sense of humor at least. No speeding tickets in 25 years, I got one that day. But he gave me a break by writing it for only 9 mph over...$79.00. Lol. These new lights and unmarked cars make driving muscle cars a bit risky. Lol

    Amazing what they're getting away with, compared to how well they used to be marked. In PA, they even had to keep parking lights on while sitting off the side of the road with radar, making them very easy to spot. I wonder if some of these things, eg. civilian plates, are even legal.
