lol, the California vehicles are more like the stuff I'm used to seeing in Toronto. It's crazy seeing all of these luxury cars being used as emergency vehicles in Europe.

they must have calculated the cost-benefit and it comes out on the plus side for them...maybe their quickness is an advantage or the car companies have a deal with the government?

I don't know if a car is luxurious just because it's a Mercedes or a BMW, but these companies probably do have deals with the governments. All these Lamborghini/Porsche/Ferrari/Whatever police cars are just publicity stunts, while most policemen drive something more "normal" like a Skoda or a Renault

Those long Californian fire engines are awesome!

I never understood these many types of Police in the USA... Sheriff, Highway patrol, Police... etc... Do they all do the same work and have the same authority?
