First off, is something new? There have been unmarked State Police cars for a while at least. Second, I just drove two hours on the thruway this afternoon and was "wishing" for a cop, but they're never there when you want one.:)

I thought they weren't allowed to pull people over in unmarked vehicles?

Like, there was a law passed stating so since people were getting murdered when they pulled over for unmarked "police" vehicles.

Yes, it's illegal to use "unmarked vehicles", thats why the troopers are calling them CITE (Concealed Identity Traffic Enforcement) vehicles instead.

I guess they don't have to follow their own laws?

I wonder if this means that town and city police departments can no get their own Concealed Identity Traffic Enforcement vehicles??

It is not illegal to use unmarked police cars in NEW YORK STATE. The NYSP stopped using them by the direction of the Governor, who they work for. Executive directive. That was done back in the 1980's. The Governor has now authorized the state police to use unmarked vehicles again.... ie: concealed identity traffic enforcement vehicles.

Correction it was in the 1990's. There was a bill written to outlaw the use, but it never became law.
