If I was in charge...
What cars would the police be in under YOUR RULE?
I don't know if I've ever seen a police force as pointless as my own countrys. And while I wanted to publicly rudicule them for an entire article (i might still do that if you want idk) I figured that I would want to try not go too long without discussing some cars. And so I've tied the two together. You see for years now our entire police force, An Garda Síochana, have had their fleet of cars supplied by Hyundai. Which means BORING. There is no impression of control or security given off by this, two things which I value very highly. So I have come to the conclusion that instead of doing anything of any significance in relation to this problem, I'd make a Drivetribe post about it instead. The idea is simple, you are in power. The running of the police is completely in your hands, so you are gonna pick what cars they make their presence in.
You will pick three brands: One for a police van. One for a fast and trusty saloon or estate car. One for whatever other car you choose to include. Also give the model in each instance. Remember presence is important, but so is practicality, safety, speed and all of that sort of stuff. So make your choices and share. Here's mine, tell me what you think, so long as you are in agreement that is.
THE POLICE VAN:
I used my very limited knowledge of vans to muster up this brainwave.....the 2021 Volswagen Transporter! Obviously it's fairly self-explanatory. Main points are it's big, spacious, and german. Perfect.
THE POLICE SUV:
For the SUV, what better choice the the absolutely massive Land Rover Defender 130 (the one with 8 seats). It goes everywhere and does everything, let's be real. And surely there's some reassurance in the name 'Defender'......If I was bothered I would get the 'sometimes my genius is almost frightening' meme but I'm not so just imagine it. It's not a van so don't bother with that.
THE POLICE SALOON/ESTATE:
For once, I cannot justify using Kia.....so I won't🥺. Instead I've gone for this, the Volvo S90. Yes the estate is better, but I am a man of principle and quality. And the wagon is what would be used as the hearse, NOT the police car. If this isn't a car for good service, god I don't know what is. There's nothing bad about it.
So there we are, you may have noticed my main concern when picking my cars was style, because my Ireland will be one of quality, not Hyundais. Like I said give your list and tell us why it is what it is. Thanks for reading, maybe pop back next time round?👋
