Police cars come in many different models and makes depending on the city in question, but the New York Police Department's new fleet of Smart Fortwos is a unique one in the world of law enforcement. The department has received 100 of the diminutive vehicles, though New Yorkers can rest assured that the Smart Fortwos aren't likely to be conducting high-speed chases any time soon.

Instead of replacing the Dodge Chargers in the NYPD's fleet, the Smart Fortwos have been implemented to begin phasing out the enclosed motorized tricycles that had been in operation for the city's meter-enforcement service. The change is a practical one, as the Smart Fortwos can move significantly faster than the old tricycles without sacrificing maneuverability.
