    Nah, Longarm is better to keep the costs down. Plus that mold still stands well today.

    LOL. Kind of not nice of the police to do this, though, given how these type of cars are only used for promotion.
    Heck, actually we in Hungary have "Barricades" you can drive around, that is, his older TF1-3 look, repainted as US police cars. You can rent and drive them legally.

    Did you actually read the police report I translated, or did you just immediately type your response after reading the headline?

    Nowhere in the police report do they make a reference to Barricade's deco. That's not what caused a problem. At all.

    They were being driven around on a public street. Not being unloaded for being put on display. Driving on the street. The police checked them and found several problems that were in violation of German traffic safety regulations.

    Considering that movie promotions happen all the time, I don't think that promotional vehicles driving on a public street should get a free pass because accidents don't care whether it's done for a movie promotion or not.

    That's like how at my workplace, some people think it's okay to ignore safety regulations whenever items need to be processed quickly so they get shipped to the customer on time. Accidents don't care whether your work needs to get done "quickly" for whatever reason. In fact, accidents often tend to happen when the pressure to finish certain tasks is at its peak.
