Forty percent of New York City government vehicles are hybrids or run on alternative fuels. The New York Police Department is exempt from the aggressive environmental vehicle procurement requirements of other city agencies and yet, they have at least one marked patrol car labeled for traffic enforcement.

As a commenter notes, this will be for meter maids and intersection control, not armed police officers.

This is not a patrol vehicle. Its for Traffic Enforcement aka meter maids and intersection control. No one carrying a gun will be driving this vehicle.
