A New Look for SFPD Radio Cars? Aerodynamic Light Bars Make All the Difference

Check out this SFPD prowler parked in the Funset District – groove on that funky, aerodynamic light bar on top.

Almost thought it was a fake from the filming of NBC’s horrible Trauma action/dramedy at first, but no, if you count the points on the big blue door star it comes up seven (and not eight) every time.  

Fake Michael Schumacher will have even less of a chance of evading Park Station the next time he drives his Ferrari F355 Spyder to Haight Ashbury for a pint or five.

Maybe our City is just trying out something new…

  1. Also, the Trauma SFPD cars place the star inside a shield. An extra point on the star probably isn’t enough to make driving on city streets legal (which I’ve seen nowhere near a shoot).

    I see, thanks for the link.

    I saw three of these police-type cars on a huge flatbed parked between the New Main Library and the old Main Library (the Asian Art Museum) a month or two ago, I think. No license plates so they probably aren’t legal to drive on public roads when not being filmed
