The Pennsylvania State Police are going gray

01.23.17 | Traci Lynn Woolsey

Later this year, motorists across Pennsylvania will start to see the state police change out the white patrol cars in favor of  sterling gray vehicles. The color scheme is based on the color of trooper uniforms.   Leaders hope the change connects the cars with state troopers in the public's mind.

Plans call for decals bearing the word "Trooper" to run along the sides of the new vehicle with "State Trooper" emblazoned along the front and rear.

The current design, a white car trimmed with black and gold, was adopted in 1991.
