The Steamboat Springs Police has two new black and white patrol vehicles hitting the road this week. The ‘Black & White’ was chosen because it can be seen from a significant distance as well as is highly visible in snow. The department will transition to the new black & white pattern as older vehicles are retired over the coming years. The change is expected to take several years before the entire force is in the black and white format. Picture of the new patrol vehicle courtesy of the City of Steamboat, click to enlarge.
