    the last part of the license plate is the year... the first part is currently the month in which the vehcile is licensed... the 0 corresponds to April and the 5 is September...

    thats the way out license plates have worked for 7 years...

    01 (april 2001)
    51 (sept 2001)
    02 (april 2002)
    52 (sept 2002)
    and so on

    sorry about the confusion.

    If thats unavailable there's usually a silver 56 plate Vauxhaul Zafira to use as a back up. Its a bit crapper than the '07 to drive...gears are looser and its always dirty inside as its more of a general utility vehicle
    So I looked up the website. But what's this '07 plate and '56 plate? That's not the year is it? Sorry, but that's not yank lingo

    The Montreal Police have 2 or 3 of those little Bombardier vehicles. They are used in parks, during sidewalk sales etc. They are not used for everyday patrol.

    Can anyone be taken seriously as a security or LE officer in one of those. I guess the perps are to busy rofl to get away.

    When I was Navy Security Force at Naval Weapons Station Concord, we were the first NSF, taking over from the Marines. So we worked for them till we had enough personnell assigned, then they worked for us till we were 100%. Anyway, we inherited everything but weapons pretty much. Our vehicles were Ford Rangers on a 2 year lease. Now, some posts had alot of buildings to check, one had 106 stops in 6 hours. Pretty hard on them, doing that twice a day.

    So as the vehicles became shot before the two years, we picked some up from salvage at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. We had this 73 chevy pickup, (this was about '88), and I was SOG (Sargent of the Guard) and had just pulled up to mobile 24 in the 73 chevy. As he hit the brakes, a pully fell off and rolled out in front of him . Mobile 24 was now on foot.

    Sgt.....I just can't see myself driving (let alone sitting in) one of those things. I am too much of a tradionalist I suppose.

    Better than a golf cart, quieter than a gator

    I am not a IT oriented type of guy. I know just enough to get into trouble. I need some help from my people. Standby!

    Be Safe,

    Some of the areas are more than a mile from campus, and remember this is Illinois where cold weather and snow are common
