    Just a prototype, but who knows, maybe making an appearance at a future traffic stop.

    Cop in a Prius! I think the temptation to run for it would be tremendous!

    I wonder what the gadget that sweeps the underside of the car is for. Bomb checks?

    My son says that one of the biggest exposures to estrogen mimicking substances is those thermal printers. You need rubber gloves to handle the ticket! ;)

    BPA from thermal paper receipts passes through the skin

    A number of tactical errors...

    Too close to stopped vehicle. Trunk/Hatchback opens and shoots LEO.

    “Officer” in seatbelt and sitting down. How can he move quickly if in trouble? Will lead to complacency.

    “Officer” concentrates on video rather than the scene.

    There are more.

    Unless he is really short that video screen appears to be right in front of his face blocking the view of the car. And there is no way you’re going to be able to keep an eye on passengers or see plain view contraband.

    I’d hate to trip over that track system jumping out in a hurry.
