SQ show off new black and white cruisers

The Sûreté du Québec is updating the look of its patrol cars.

Unveiled Thursday, the new design is predominantly black, with white doors that include a green trim and a yellow strip.

In a statement the SQ said the new visual style will maximize the visibility of the vehicles in all weather conditions, improve safety and identification as well as give the vehicles an overall boost in aesthetics.

The new look cruisers will slowly roll into service and replace the existing white cars over the next three years.
