Wow, they thought the Altima's were tight on space....they probably wish to get back into an Altima after being assigned this "buggy"

 

Second thought, now we know why they had to reduce the speed limit in the City.

How.....How do some of the officers fit in there?  I'm 6' 4" and I complained about driving a Chevy Colorado.

I know a few troopers of the same size who used to drive the 5.0L Mustangs.

We used to chuckle watching them getting in and out of those cars.

I think someone had a brain FART  when they made this selection. 

 

Its hard to take someone seriously when they get out of one of these vehicles. 

But then maybe its the administration's hope that the bad guys would be laughing too hard to run?

NYPD has almost every kind of vehicle. They use scooters, they hade Cushman trikes for a long time. It is not unusual to see a 15 passenger van being used to transport foot patrol officers. They are very divers and innovative in vehicle deployment.

Back in the 80s the city had us using "k" cars. What goes around comes around I guess

Not including Clown cars and various Cushmans and segways, I was told that the NYPD has a variety of RMPs makes ,in the event of a serious manufacturers recall, the entire fleet would not be affected, now I do not know if that is fact or fiction

These cars are not for routine patrol.
They are not assigned as precinct sector cars.
Most are assigned to Traffic Enforcement and many are operated by Traffic Agents.
They are assigned to precincts, but are primarily used for summons duty and traffic enforcement.
They are not used to answer emergency calls, transport prisoners or complainants, or any normal patrol function.
They are utilized in limited patrol settings, such as parks and boardwalks where traditional RMP's may encounter difficulties.

They are replacing the three-wheeled scooters.
These vehicles have the following advantages over a three-wheeled scooter:

real heat,

A/C,

better seating for operator and the ability to seat more than one person,

more storage, 

am/fm radio,

seatbelts,

airbag,

side-impact protection,

require no mcy license to drive,

...and I am sure a few other benefits.

oh, and they cost about $2,500 less than a three-wheeled scooter.
