Police Car

why are police cars black and white?

ccurious to know

Police cars were painted black and white back in the 40s and 50s to make them stand out. The purpose of police patrol is solely to deter crime...who's going to commit a crime with a cop nearby? So by making the cars stand out it was easier to see police presence.

Since then, many different departments have modeled their own colors and decals to set their vehicles out from the crowd, but nowadays we also have LED stobes and very loud sirens to make us known - not just a paint job.
