I don't hate them as much as I hate cops that drive other cars that really don't look like cop cars. I.E. Today I saw a grey dodge charger with nice 18" alloys with lights behind the grill and one light on the back window that pulled someone over.. Or a f150 that looks like a construction truck with hidden lights as well!

i've seen these guys around numerous time around my area, and most of the time the driver(s) doesn't look like they are in any positions to own anything better i don't want to stereotype or anything but yea... maybe they really don't have enough $ to get anything better you know what i mean... idk that's just my 2 cents

around here many of the new cruisers are chargers so I know better. I was pissed the other day b/c the clown had like 5% tints on it. my tax dollars at work so he can watch porn on his laptop on the side of the road without anyone knowing.

As much as I hate them, I think it would be funny to own one. You know, to strike fear in other people, lol.

it usually freaks me out and once I see their license plate and the fact that they paid registration (not CA exempt) then I know they're a fake and I blow by them..

I hate these stupid crown vic police look-a-likes as well. I always get faked out. Not so much when I see them in my rearview, but those ass clowns who leave their unmarked police looking cars outside on their lawns or behind bushes - on purpose - in an attempt to get people to slow down. You'll see a ton of people slam on their brakes as they drive by!

Coming from Jersey and being used to seeing crown vics, both marked and unmarked, I get really confused being in Philly now.

They use the Chevy Impalas as police cars. So when I am in Philly and see a crown vic, I think it's a cop and it's really not.

When I go back to Jersey and I see a Chevy Impala, I think it's a cop and it's not.....
