Law-breakers beware: Ford is offering a new warning light option for its Police Interceptor Utility that allows the Explorer-based SUV to keep its low profile from behind.
To compliment its existing front-facing, “no-profile” visor light bar, Ford Motor Company is debuting a new Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Light system for the Police Interceptor SUV. The lights are difficult to spot when not active, and they are packaged so as to not intrude on rearward visibility.
“Aftermarket light bars can impede visibility by hanging down over the glass,” says Ford Police Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Tyler. “Our fully programmable Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights are integrated into the spoiler, so agencies get their bright red, blue and amber LEDs with no compromise to rear visibility.”
The new Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights for the Ford Police Interceptor Utility can be programmed to flash the standard red-and-blue typically used by the police, as well as red-and-red, blue-and-blue, or amber for directional signaling. They also feature auto-dimming from full intensity all the way down to 20 percent.
Says Ford Police Chief Program Engineer Arie Groeneveld: “Together with our front visor light bar, Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights offer a fully integrated solution for agencies wishing to minimize the presence of their police vehicles.”
Don’t worry police cars do not have DRL’s, Also until they can hide the spotlite they still standout.
