Ford Motors new Police Interceptor slim-profile LED visor light bar makes it all but impossible to tell that the car behind you is about to pull you over for speeding or any other traffic infraction.
Ford Motors introduction of the new slim-profile LED visor light for cop cars makes it near impossible to tell that car behind you is a cop.This is likely to have a double effect that I wonder if Ford Motors thought about.
Even sneakier than the roof-mounted light bar is the visor-mounted light bar, which attaches up near the sun visors inside the cabin, basically disappearing behind the windshield.
Ford Motors new low-profile light bar is fully integrated outside of the driver’s field of vision, for both reduced obstruction and a lower chance of scofflaws realizing five-o is in hot pursuit.Of course, there’ll be no mistaking what’s happening once the lights are flipped on. There’s nothing low about blue and red LEDs blasting photons all up in your face.
The light, which is only available on the-based Police Interceptor Utility, features auto-dimming capability, programmable brightness down to 20 percent of full and a bright white “take down” mode.
Adding the light bar to the car also gets rid of the dark tint atop the windshield. It’s even got a warranty!
Unmarked cars are hard enough to spot — especially nowadays, when the police utilize a wide variety of makes and models.Ford Motors new light bar is about to make it that much harder.
If you’re racking up points left and right, you might want to chill out a bit more
Now the second thing and the real thing I personally think may become a problem is knowing if the Ford Explorer behind you with the lights blinking is in fact a legit police vehicle.
Over all, we think this is pretty cool.
