opp 001229

Well, actually it’s black and white.

Today the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will officially start using the old colouring of their police cars. Years ago, and for many years, their cars were coloured black & white which made them very visible on the streets, highway and waterways of Ontario.

All this with a new standard in traffic control. Apparently, up to today only 20% of an Officers duty time was spent on highway traffic control. Today Chief Fantino announced that this will all change, making it a regular part of an officers duty. He also announced that there will be no more “blitz’ campaigns, usually saved for the Christmas Season. Instead, it will happen all year.

The days of yore looked like this:

And the last one used back in the 80’s looked like this:

opp 001820car7-500

Today and going forward they will look like this:

Ahhh, brings back many memories….
