Ponch Approved? California chooses Ford Explorer Police Interceptor as next patrol car. This fails on so many levels we can’t believe it. First, when is the last time you saw 4 CHP’s in a patrol car? Second, don’t you think the hypocrites in Sacramento who demand citizens put up with the draconian CARB and job killing cap & trade laws would want something besides an SUV gas guzzler? Third, we don’t think the CHP is going to be sneaking up on very many drivers with this huge silhouette in the rear view mirror. California continues to hold its lead in hypocrisy.
