I don't get it. Sneaky? Except for the make/model, we already got examples of pretty much all of those in MN

As a former cop, and now a rush hour "victim", I like it......

Way too many people with the "No cops, no laws" mentality on the road around here....

That is very sneaky.

My philosophy is, if I see a Crown Vic, slow down.

Ditto. Especially black ones, I always slow down. Usually it'* an old grandpa, but I'm careful. I can spot those Crown Vic headlights at night from my rearview mirror a long ways away. Saved my butt a couple times.

Yeah we've had those in Halton Hills now for a few years, like Sol said when i see a Crown Vic i slow down. We've got 2 alone in Georgetown, but after you see the color of the car it blows it for the cops. I guess they hope to catch more out of towners.

always slow down for crown vics, also slot of times cops will get real close and right in your trail, im assuming they are running the plate. But i always know, hell just pull into a driveway if you can, they go right past you!

There are very few ways thaat you can tell if the car isnt a cop car, the suspension(if it sags too much or if it is sitting up higher than usual, the plugged up antennas, the plates, the rims/wheelcovers they use, the tires and in the city if the car is cleaner/dirtier than the usual plain cop cars. Or if its a Grand Marquis/Maurauder
