The Zanesville post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is making a few changes to their cars. The first is the light bars on top of the cruisers. Sgt. Michael Forshey said the older ones, which are square in shape, are not as visible. The newer light bars offer a few different lighting options, including the ability to direct traffic on the rear panel of the car. Inside the car is becoming more high tech too. Forshey said they are pre-wiring the vehicles for the addition of laptop computers. This will give dispatchers a map, showing where all troopers are, and likely decrease the amount of time it takes to get to an incident. Forshey said OSP is also in the midst of changing colors of their cruisers from gray to white. He said this color is more visible and they hope it will cut down on the number of accidents involving stopped troopers.
