The French police introduce a new vehicule...

French Police vehicules have been the butt of many jokes, but the French really do not help themselves....

The new French Police vehicule is an electric scooter!.. and the idea is that they may be useful in the fight against street crime.

A pair of specially designed scooters are being tested by officers in Honfleur, Calvados. They have a 30km range and can reach speeds of up to 25kph. It is expected that, in certain circumstances, officers using them will be able to reach incidents more quickly than those on foot, or even in cars.

The scooters, which are based on US Army models used in landing operations, have large tyres that mean officers will be able to ride over bumps and potholes in the road more easily.
