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.
