We have a "test" Charger right now at detachment. It is supposed to be here for only 2-3 weeks.... It is a Dodge Charger Code 9 (dark blue) no cage, V6, no MWS ************* From all the hype of how this was to be the ultimate car....I'm very disappointed. - Poor to NO visibility to the le...

I was just finishing my traffic stop with a CMV, red rear LEDS on, with red arrow stick, another cruiser was 50metres back with same light configuration. The CMV was starting to move forward, 5 MV ...

Even if this issue of moving left was not a law......as a lot of drivers still no nothing of the law almost 4 yrs later.... it would be just common courtesy/sense to move as far away as possible from anything parked on the shoulder and slow down, whether it be a broken down motorist, tow truck or po...

Commissioner has the black Chrysler 300M, not sure if lights are in it. He was even out at some of RIDE programs checking cars! Now that's leadership! right there with the road guys!

Our MWS is too far behind others to even bother. You have to keep flipping through Niche, screens, etc to run a MV and person. Some of PD's, type the plate only and the computer does the rest runs the plate, RO, (MTO & CPIC) and then on their in house system. Keep it simple like technology that ...

We have the cheapy vertical black steel bars with rubber cushion on them built by our transport branch. I use the bumpers every couple of weeks on something, never had an cruiser damage from using the bumper. Mainly use to move disabled MV's off to the shoulder of the Hwy and other times to move dis...

Oh yes, the survey, that wasn't much of a shocker at all. If I remember correctly, it was something like only 90-95% were unsatisfied with Morale. With 80% indicating morale has decreased over the 5yrs. But hopefully the new cars will give us a boost. But, I'm not holding my breath until I acutally ...

It seems as bad as the Charger, which is not getting any positive reviews from our office, it tends to be parked more than driven. Reason is the lack of visibility to the sides and rear, even more so with cage

Funny, there are so many rumuors flying around....from 150-600 B&W cars. Well I'll throw my 2 cents of non-sense in here also. We were told that 150 cars were ordered, and they were only going to the new Provincial Traffic Units only, under the direction of Deputy Carson. All the white cars curr...

The Arjent SL is by far quieter than the Vector. An Arject bar at 140km/hr gives the same wind noise as the Vector does at 90km/hr. At regular patrol speeds the Arjent SL noise is non-existent. We have the same problem at RIDE, for the lights too bright, however, we turn most the lights off. We acti...
