SPOTTED: The Alcohol Safety Patrol Cruised Around Manhattan This Weekend

It seems that in the 1960s and ’70s, police officers had very specialised beats.

Last weekend, our very own Meredith Galante saw a gaggle of vintage police cars on 34th Street in Manhattan, but there was one that really stuck out.

The photo below shows a car that was on the “Alcohol Safety Patrol.” Presumably, he would be on the lookout for drunk drivers and any suspicious activity to keep the roads safe.

It’s good to see that the police were very diligent about drunk driving 40 years ago.

Have you spotted a rare or unusual car/plane/train/boat/industry person in your travels? Did you take a photo? Do you like sharing?
