A handful of Nevada Highway Patrol vehicles are being outfitted in what officials call “ghost markings” that make the vehicles tougher to identify.
The agency said the goal is to increase enforcement efforts, specifically targeting hazardous moving violations.
The hope is that the new vehicles will be more difficult for erratic or aggressive drivers to spot and avoid.
Troopers driving the discretely-marked vehicles will have the same enforcement abilities as a Trooper driving a normally marked vehicle.
The vehicles still bear many calling cards of a patrol car, such as a large grill and faintly visible lights, but many of the normally large reflective Nevada Highway Patrol insignias and markings are only faintly visible on the "ghost" vehicles.
Just three patrol cars will be outfitted with the new markings at first, but more will likely be added.
