NYPD Tests Vectrix Electric Maxi-scooters
Police have found a way to help save the planet and perhaps sneak up on bad guys at the same time: an electric, ultra-quiet scooter.
The New York Police Department will begin road testing four of the plug-in Vectrix scooters early next month -- part of a broader campaign to make the nation's largest police department a greener one as well.
The 36,000-officer NYPD has been looking for ways to retool its massive motor fleet to guzzle less gas and inflict less harm on the environment. A handful of NYPD hybrid cars and so-called flex-fuel vehicles, which can run on both gasoline and ethanol, are already on the road.
