COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol is touting the sleek silver Dodge Charger driven by troopers after it won an organization’s online contest for best-looking cruiser.
The American Association of State Troopers named the winner Wednesday on its Facebook page after fans “liked” the Ohio cruiser photo nearly 22,000 times during a two-week contest. The runner-up was the cruiser for state police in neighboring West Virginia.
The patrol said the winning photo gets featured on the cover of the association’s newsletter.
Ohio troopers began using the silver Dodge Chargers a couple years ago. They are topped by blue light bars and have decals that include the patrol’s “Flying Wheel” image on the door.
