Hybrid Cop Cars in Aspen

Blue Police LightThey may not be the first to do it, but they may be the most noticeable. Aspen, Colorado police are turning in their Volvo XC-90s and replacing them with Toyota Highlander Hybrids. And that despite having replaced Saab sedans in 2005 with the XC-90s.

"This is a chance for us to reduce greenhouse gases and be a good contributor to the city's Canary Initiative," said Aspen Police Officer Brian Nicholls. "And it's a chance for us to lead by example."

I might have to disagree with that, since replacing your vehicles every year is not a good example when it comes to reducing greenhouse gases.
