VISABARS ON STATE POLICE CARS

During 1981, the Illinois Department of Law Enforcement conducted research that concluded that fuel consumption by patrol vehicles could be reduced by not equipping vehicles with roof-mounted light bars, that these cars had a lower incidence of accidents than marked cars, and that the average cost of repairing damages resulting from an accident involving a vehicle with light bars was more than twice that for a vehicle without such lights.
