When I work at Advance on the weekend I usually end up making some deliveries. We have several customers on the loop around the Galleria, so I make a few trips over there. Now that the Christmas shopping underway the Hoover Police Department is out in force making an attempt at traffic control. This year they have gone geek on us, trolling the loop and parking lots on these souped up scooters.
As long as the weather is nice I bet it is fun for these guys to zoom around and generate revenue. And they probably are quite a bit cheaper to operate than their HPD Tahoes, which get around 8-10 MPG on the $4.00 per gallon E85 they are running them on. Check out those cool polished wheels though!
