Pa. troopers take to the streets in new patrol cars
Pennsylvania State Police are showing off some new wheels.
They'll be chasing down the bad guys in a 2013 Ford Police Interceptor sedan.
The new vehicles are an upgrade from the standard Ford Crown Victoria.
The new vehicles are all-wheel drive, and they feature more lights, better radio and siren controls and enhanced safety features.
"Has traction stability. Has a computer in it so if you would be driving down the road, you get in a situation, the computer may do different things for you, slowing the tire down, putting more brake to a tire," said Tpr. David Beohm, Pa. State Police.
Two of the new vehicles are based at the state police barracks in Reading. They're the first ones to be used out in the field.
