No more bikes, just cars.
I have wondered about the economics of police MC as done in the USA. My cost per mile on my motorcycle is higher than in my car. This is primarily due to the cost of tires, and general maintenance. The policeman would be covered by workman's comp too, I wonder how that premium compares to a patrol car.

There is the, have to call a car to take a arrested person in, limited equipment and most cases chases are limited because of safety. The only benefit is lane splitting maneuverability issues. Now if you had officers patrolling on small single cylinder bikes, maybe that would be cost effective for lots of situations.

Does not seem generally cost effective.
