The O.P.P. has been using unmarked cars for just about ever.
Mind you, if you can't spot a Ford Crown Victoria with fat tires, painted hubcaps, lowered suspension and a big ol' anti-roll bar hanging down below the diff, you probably deserve to get cuaght, even if it is painted plain black - you just aren't paying enough attention.
I did see a O.P.P Crown Vicky a couple of months ago with matte-black lettering on the shiny black paint - actually looked kind of cool, like those new B. C. Lions football jerseys.
There has been a tan/light brown/Sonoma Saddle Firefight/whatever-they-call-that-colour Chevy Tahoe SUV floating around - I see it on the 401 west of the city, because that's where I live and drive; it may be more wide-ranging than that.
That's pretty sneaky.
But the sneakiest I ever saw was just a few days ago - a full-size GM Van. I couldn't tell from a quick glance whether it was branded as a Chevy Express or a GMC Savana - like Kia's Sorento, deliberately, it would appear, spelled incorrectly, unless they're talking about a town in Madagascar, there's two 'n's in Savanna.
And an 'h' at the end if you're talking about a town in Georgia.
It was the long wheelbase model, windows in the sides, sort of like the one over there to the right, except the one I saw was painted a nice dull gray.
But the operators had pulled someone over, and the little red and blue lights embedded in the grille and rear end were flashing merrily away.
Now, that IS sneaky.
I just hope against hope it was for a real driving infraction, and not for just another speeding ticket.
Surely we all know by now that speed limits are pointless - other than in the 'demerit point' sense... - and the enforcement thereof even more so?
A complete waste of scarce and expensive police resources.
I know I'm whistling in the wind here.
Just didn't want you to think I had given up entirely.
